Thanks to all who commented. But really I have to thank my stylist, make-up artists and the models. Seriously if you got a good team behind you, a model who knows herself and is confident, it makes everything so much easier....

But this is just something thing I'm playing with - portraits are more of my mainstay....

BTW : Urban, the cool silverblue thing is actually from the two florescent light fixtures I bought at Home Depot. You can sit one in the shot way in the back. The other is above her.....it's kinda crazy but I can't afford Kino Flo units so I kinda made a poor man's version....

Hey .francesca, be proud of me, I just scored a 1960's Lubitel and a matching Leningrad 2 light meter on eBay. I have to say your photos have inspired me to do mid format photography on janky cameras. That, and the initial buy in isn't bad at all when you're looking for Holgas. Thank you.

wow, that's amazing! i hope you're not implying that my hassleblad is junky that thing cost me 2 months rent...

in anycase..i'm really excited for your lubitel (and jealous...) and you'll have so much fun shooting with it! i'm glad i could inspire you. i love janky cameras! please post the images you shoot with it when you have some. what types of film are you going to shoot? if you can find kodak pro-image film, i love that the best..it's color but it shoots like black and white, so the colors are really muted. most of the images i posted in this thread were shot with the pro-image. it's cheap too.

great find! thanks for the compliments.

Hey all, this was supposed to be a duplicate of this ad for a school project:


So I did it like this, using available car parts instead of cameras:


Thumbnails of others.


Lessons learned? I should've diffused my light, and hanging 10 feet up in the rafters of my garage will yeld only blurry photos.

I want a reallly brutal critique on these photos. I really love the last one, but her face is obcured by shadow. The "dress" was a green sheet of fabric that I clipped on her. Photoshop effects are used to hide mistakes.

^ I have modeled nude for artists photographers for about 5 years off and on. They NEVER take good photos, but I usally don't care. It's money! I do think I am pretty though, and it would be nice to have some stunning photos of me for a change. They would help with a portfolio. I have never tried submitting photos to real modeling agencies, but I figure I'd give it a try if I can ever build up a good model/photographer relationship to build up a portfolio. There are too many skeezes out there who do TFP and it's not worth it. I am only 5'5, so I am not looking for any huge career, maybe just some print ads for catalogs n such. I find it more a way to keep in touch with the art/fashion world more than anything.
