Deviant Art

Fiona and Emma by *Allablur on deviantART. I’ve rather forgotten about my presence on deviantArt. I’m posting this favourite of mine from a couple of years ago to see what happens when I use the dA tools to post an image here…..

(Having posted it at a larger size, I did’t like the outcome – blame dA using Flash – but works OK small – will have to consider other means in future).

What I like about this image is the little story conveyed in the eyes that at least one person is not committed to this (ficticious) relationship. Pretence on a pretend.

Hone Office v. Mobile Office

Today I’m doing something which has long been intended but never quite auctioned – the mobile office….

So here I am sitting on jerky bus armed with phone, laptop, mobile broadband thingy – and G11 camera – trying to write an introduction to proceedings. Trouble is that if I do it too long I’ll throw up over the phone…

Out-takes from Ashdown Forest shoot

Yes, we took Jess’s dogs along. In retrospect this was a mistake. When naked in a busy forest you might need to be able to reach for your clothes and get dressed quickly. As Jess discovered, not quite evident in the photos, this is not always possible if your dog has decided that it would be tidier if your dress was carried away somewhere else.

At one stage I did try a more conceptual shot using myself as a model. It didn’t really work that well….. Contrary to the perceptions that these images might give, I am wearing clothes almost all the time when shooting.

Jess’s dogs are called May and Stompy by the way. They have no problem with clothes.
