How did you do it? the light is so uniform. Looks like some Mert & Marcus work... congratulations!
Thank you.

I like your work too, very good.

About the light - I used an umbrella and just 1 light and usually positioned where naturally light would come from. (window for example or bedside lamp). I like that illusion.

@Karl, you pictures are very nice.
@ong.nicholas - no, I haven't assisted. I learned by trial-and-error.

Bye,
Cristina

melanie - i really like your cropping close on the face - they'd be perfect for beauty shots! i also really like the hair in the girl's face in the first one. great job! got any more?

for the past few weeks i've been working on a series called "giving up the ghost." i should have a few more images coming soon. these were taken with a diana camera. here is a link for more information:

these were all done in-camera...no digital manipulation.

melanie - yes, dianas are a much older version of holgas - i like my diana much better than any holga i've ever used...and it's purely a personal thing specific to the cameras...i just get better results with the diana.

i can't believe you used a holga for those 2 shots...they came out really well! did you just tape up the entire thing to avoid light leaks? it looks like you used a flash on a couple...does your holga have the flash on it?

i like the 2 polaroids too...i'm also an avid polaroid-user

francesca - I like your new work. I think I'm drawn to the more ghostly ones. I've always been fascinated with the "dead girl image" and some of those provoke that feeling. I especially like the fire escape/stairs one

Will you be pushing to a gallery?

Hello
I'm new here and a photographer, I've enjoyed seeing the images that have been posted on this thread (except the ones I coudn't see and don't show up anymore for server problem or what have you...)

Here are some of my photos... I also have a website, www.ivonnecarlo.com

Glad my friend referred me to this site. Cool...


*edit - images didn't work*

pamela - thanks for the kind words...i always used to do double exposures by accident and then i decided to take control! i'm submitting this and other new work to magazines and a couple fashion photography competitions...i'm working on some other stuff for galleries.

i also got some older work published in Look magazine - i have taken them down from this thread, but some of the older members might remember it, and recognise it from our new 'visualising fashion' banners!

Beautiful work Francesca. Really inspiring and original. I went and saw the Look magazine photos as well. Really haunting and beautiful.
