Grey day play

December 12, 2016

Be forewarned there is female nudity here so if it offends you leave before viewing.

The other day a traveling model from Model mayhem recontacted me about shooting together and this has been a slow month maybe even longer than a month since shooting and I liked a couple of her portfolio pictures and I though, why not? I just had a cancelation on another shoot and I was ready. I do get excited about shoots even a headshot, my wife describes this as nervous but I think of it as anticipation which I think we artists all share. Will I be good enough, will what ever I am planing work, will people laugh at me? They have. Taking photos isn’t a life and death situation unless it is.

As you can read latter in this post how I screwed up during this session. Oh well.

Zi rang my bell 7 minutes before the arranged time, that’s a positive sign which means she’s professional and a smart lady even caught some type o’s in my model release, cool. We talked about makeup well lipstick color which she applied while I pulled down the paper. Then we looked through some clothes I had and made a pile to try.

_mg_3282

Beginning with this jacket I don’t remember having, it’s nice to discover something new. I really didn’t need to direct her because she would go from pose after hearing the click of the shutter. I see I should have fixed her face as it looks rough in this pose. I do try and make women look nice, must be something I got from my mother.

_mg_3324

Since the lighting is mostly set up I usually turn on and turn off units as needed. Which gets boring and I keep telling myself I need to  get out of this rut. But here I go again.

_mg_3320

I don’t think she ever said no to anything I suggested. A lovely pleasant young woman easy to work with.

_mg_3368

_mg_3355

_mg_3408

She did most of the work all I did was plug and unplug things and push the shutter. She had some Shibari rope work in her portfolio and I had asked her if she was up for it. ‘Sure’. She has her own rigger which is a bit intimidating to me the beginner.

_mg_3423

This is what I came up with her. I’ve always wanted to do a braided tie like this, I don ‘t know the names these ties but go on the visual effect

_mg_3421

not too bold but interesting for just one rope length.There feels as something is incomplete with this tie as it goes around the waist with no beginning nor end. Is there ever?

_mg_3451

we tried on the different clothes again. Someone had given me this headdress awhile ago but never found the opportunity I think it works here.

_mg_3453

We talked during the shoot to loose the Voyeuristic quality of the moments and to become human beings and not objects. I guess Zi would be called a ‘rope bunny’ which is what women are called who enjoy the freedom of being bound.

_mg_3493

Zi has a boyfriend and a different rope play partner/rigger receiving different needs from both. Working with these women is so insightful for me from the first woman who said she enjoyed being tied up. That surprised me somewhat as we had never talked about that before. But the more I learn the more I know.

_mg_3473

That there is a freedom and delicacy in not being in charge. Hell I get that feeling of not being in charge when ever I go to work at the Beacon as soon as I leave the house.

_mg_3468

At some point in time I accidentally moved the sync shutter speed out of sync with the flash units, going up to 250 from Canon 200. Check, check, check remember to take off lens cap.Check shutter speeds.

As you can see here the right side of the above picture is dark because stupid me didn’t check the shutter speed as I had moved it off the sync speed. Imagine my chagrin when looking at them in bridge.Sometimes I shoot bigger thinking I will crop latter but then I get so involved I forget, oops.So a few didn’t make the HD.

_mg_3509

This one only the chair is darker so no big deal

_mg_3517

But most of this series on the rug is trash as you can see below.Ugh

bad-3605

bad-3585

I am glad someone wasn’t paying me for this shoot. All though I did pull something out of this but nothing is perfect. Oh well.

bad-3638

bad-3635

These below I managed to save  because of cropping

_mg_3577-copy

Sometimes you win, sometimes you loose. What I was trying to do here is show off this lovely woman who had worked so hard for me.

zi-3603

It wasn’t an unproductive afternoon for neither of us. I learned an important part of photography check, check, check everything. I always say it not quantity but quality

_mg_3581-copy

so if I only get a few pictures I can use fine. This afternoon I connected with another human being and made a few enjoyable pictures. _mg_3619

So this is all I have to share today. I hope my few readers enjoy my efforts. At least two of us walked away with something we came for.Then as planned I took a nap.

Playing around with a new phase

November 7, 2016

It seems as if I’ve forgotten things I knew just a few moments ago. My computer is going wacky on me and every time I think it’s fixed out it goes. Even logging into fuzzy was a challenge trying to connect with a model via home I got a message call back later.

But the new phase is exploring how a liquid medium flows across a solid body, seems simple enough. But things don’t always go the way you envision them.

model in red

But when you’re just fooling around what ever you get is fun. This picture shows the whole set up having her set on a black covered bench against black backdrop. The clean up was done on her taking a shower between colors and cleaning the floor and blending in CS PS6.

_mg_3175

We were alone and we would set her position  I poured the paint then grabbed the camera and shot a few pictures. Then off to the shower to wash her off while I cleaned off the set.

Some colors worked better than others or we were getting into it more.

Things highly productive people do, well not me i am special, i am an artist

January 27, 2012

Here are some tips for staying productive:
1.    Work backwards from goals to milestones to tasks. Writing “launch company website” at the top of your to-do list is a sure way to make sure you never get it done. Break down the work into smaller and smaller chunks until you have specific tasks that can be accomplished in a few hours or less: Sketch a wireframe, outline an introduction for the homepage video, etc. That’s how you set goals and actually succeed in crossing them off your list.
2.    Stop multi-tasking. No, seriously—stop. Switching from task to task quickly does not work. In fact, changing tasks more than 10 times in a day makes you dumber than being stoned. When you’re stoned, your IQ drops by five points. When you multitask, it drops by an average of 10 points, 15 for men, five for women (yes, men are three times as bad at multitasking than women).
3.    Be militant about eliminating distractions. Lock your door, put a sign up, turn off your phone, texts, email, and instant messaging. In fact, if you know you may sneak a peek at your email, set it to offline mode, or even turn off your Internet connection. Go to a quiet area and focus on completing one task.
4.    Schedule your email. Pick two or three times during the day when you’re going to use your email. Checking your email constantly throughout the day creates a ton of noise and kills your productivity.
5.    Use the phone. Email isn’t meant for conversations. Don’t reply more than twice to an email. Pick up the phone instead.
6.    Work on your own agenda. Don’t let something else set your day. Most people go right to their emails and start freaking out. You will end up at inbox-zero, but accomplish nothing. After you wake up, drink water so you rehydrate, eat a good breakfast to replenish your glucose, then set prioritized goals for the rest of your day.
7.    Work in 60 to 90 minute intervals. Your brain uses up more glucose than any other bodily activity. Typically you will have spent most of it after 60-90 minutes. (That’s why you feel so burned out after super long meetings.) So take a break: Get up, go for a walk, have a snack, do something completely different to recharge. And yes, that means you need an extra hour for breaks, not including lunch, so if you’re required to get eight hours of work done each day, plan to be there for 9.5-10 hours.

From Tony Wong, a project management blackbelt.

all worth while ways of keeping on track and getting things done. i must admit i am pretty good a getting things done maybe not as organized as this list. no i don’t text people, why do they text me when i say call? i might be living in the wrong world or time frame. oh well

i do keep on track with to do list the only way that  keeps me focused and deadlines have worked pretty good for me.  am preparing to go off to Hawaii for a couple of weeks with my honey. the house is a mess clothes thrown in piles almost read to get rolled into suitcase but first i had to make fast the apartment  from the ‘Hell’s Kitchen burglar.’

that took most of the day although is seemed a simple task but……. you know how it is.  clearing calendar so i can come back clear nothing on my mind except pleasure, woohoo

yesterday i finished up giving a model whom i posted here before some selects, he gets to chose the ones he wants. i’ll never figure out what they are looking for, yes he’s seen my quick picks but they always go for ones i never though of, as is this image he picked. ugh

UGH

this was my stupid photographic choice of the day, this background, oh that’s mary’s hand down in the corner. ‘Why this one,’ i said. ‘i like the way my body is’ he replied.

i couldn’t let this pic leave the house, not looking like this and having my name on it. so through the magic of photoshop i added a few things the camera hadn’t caught. i know everyone says capture it in camera but sometimes i am too dumb.

added levels

warm photo filter

color corrected left shoulder

burned in edges

is it perfect, not really but better than the one he wanted. i turned towards him a said ‘what about this one?’ his reaction was  ‘ i can’t believe the difference.’ so there’s no truth in what i do, but as i say on my model mayhem page, ‘ I use a camera as I would a pencil or brush, photography is just a tool.’

i didn’t spend all those hours at ICP daydreaming in Photoshop II class. so here you have some of my secrets, how i am special and make others special to. it may not be productive but i’ve learned early in life to just keep at it. perseverance is one of the keys to life that makes up the song.

American artist Cindy Sherman Awarded the 2012 Roswitha Haftmann Prize

December 17, 2011


ZURICH.- The Board of the Roswitha Haftmann Foundation has awarded the 2012 Roswitha Haftmann Prize – worth CHF 150,000 – to the American artist Cindy Sherman (born 1954). Sherman is one of the leading exponents of staged photography. She uses mostly herself – her own body – as her model; yet the concept underlying her work is anything but self-referential. She has reinvented role photography. Her roleplay, which begins in the studio as a performance, ultimately reaches its audience in the form of a photograph. Her works transcend the boundaries of the exhibitionistic, and are all the more provocative because they are not intended to be viewed as self-portraits. Rather, through her alternating roles, Sherman parodies stereotypical representations of womanhood and explores the meaning of female identity in a male-dominated society. She investigates the processes of physical, psychological and sexual repression and the taboos that surround them, depicting them in the form of sometimes garish, overdrawn ‘reproductions’.

artwork: Cindy Sherman - The Monstrous Feminine Untitled # 205 Private CollectionSherman references the techniques and forms of advertising, cinema and classical painting, but moves freely within these creative parameters. Her initial breakthrough came with a series of black and white photographs created between 1977 and 1980: the ‘Untitled Film Stills’ seemingly emulating images from Italian Neo-Realism and American film noir. They were followed by her first photo series in colour that dealt with the issue of sexual objectification, in which prosthetic limbs and mannequins were her preferred props. Later came the ‘History Portraits’ that replicated the composition of celebrated paintings easily recognizable to the viewer, as well as series on topics such as Hollywood and clowns.

Sherman draws her audience into conflict-laden situations. The individual identity that she presents is confronted with a collective sub-conscious, artificial beauty with natural brutality. Sherman’s particular talent lies in her ability at once to attract and repel the viewer with works that are both profoundly unsettling and enduringly fascinating. In the opinion of the Roswitha Haftmann Foundation jury, she is the leading artist of filmic and photographic self-exploration after Andy Warhol. It is in recognition of these artistic achievements that she has been awarded the Roswitha Haftmann Prize.

PRIZEWINNER AND AWARD CEREMONY
Cindy Sherman was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey in 1954. She studied painting at the State University College in Buffalo, New York and, during that time, also began working with photography. Her first important work, ‘Bus Riders’ (1976), was created while she was still a student.

She currently lives and works in New York. Her works appear in the collections of some of the world’s most prestigious art museums, not only in the US but also in Europe and, indeed, Mexico and Israel. Cindy Sherman is the twelfth artist to receive Europe’s most valuable art prize and the fourth woman to do so, after Maria Lassnig, Mona Hatoum and Vija Celmins . The award, worth CHF 150,000, will be presented on 10 May 2012 at the Kunsthaus Zürich.

SPECIAL ACCOLADE FOR HARUN FAROCKI

The Prize was originally the initiative of Roswitha Haftmann (1924-1998), whose Foundation has awarded it since 2001 to a living artist who has created an oeuvre of outstanding quality. The winner is chosen by the Foundation Board, which includes the directors of the Kunstmuseum Bern , the Kunstmuseum Basel, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne and the Kunsthaus Zürich as well as other members co-opted by the Board. The deed of foundation provides for the jury to award special prizes at its discretion. It has now chosen to do so for the third time, and is bestowing on film director Harun Farocki a prize of CHF 75,000.

Author, lecturer and filmmaker Harun Farocki was born in 1944 in what is now the Czech Republic and from 1966 to 1968 studied at the German Film and Television Academy in Berlin, where he now lives. He has established a reputation as a film critic and screenwriter and has completed more than 100 productions since 1966, predominantly documentaries, essay films and story films. Many of the works he has created since 2000 have been shown in exhibitions and museums ranging from the São Paulo Art Biennial to documenta 12. He curates exhibitions for art societies and museums.

old work revisited or catching up with sending photos

November 18, 2011

today i’ve a cold and still feeling lousy and my typing hasn’t improved either. but i am trying to catch up on work, yea i call this work some might think it’s fun sitting here in front of a computer screen where the day goes by so quickly. did i eat today, what time is it? opps

life could be worst as i am wondering what to do about all the spam comments i am getting here. i did like one from a learn at home belly dancing course. here are some quotes

1) Vary your speed – slow, medium, or fast
2) Vary the intensity of your energy – soft or hard
3) Vary the number of times you work each side of the body
4) Change the direction you are facing
5) Change your level by raising or lowering your body
6) Do your move standing pivoting, or traveling
7) Change the direction of your move

is it me or does this sound like SEX? speaking of sexy or nudes not sure they are all sexy especially after looking at model mayhem daily photo contest i’ve reworked some images to send to waiting models only today i converted them to B&W’s silly me.

female nude

but the model who i was sending the images is a male who was part of this session so i’ll try and concentrate on that task

couple

kneeling

i was trying to work with a theme here of non-communication using the black rubber gloves as a barrier to actual touching

indifference

 or this attitude

is something touching me

i think she was a good sport, although she was paid she really didn’t understand what i am looking for but gave what she could.

UGH

the male didn’t feel too comfortable here either or inexperienced. this was everybody’s first time working together maybe i should have been more active in my direction, oh well

remove shroud

overall i think i got some nice images although the female model didn’t want any of the images for her portfolio, can’t please everyone.

couple

well at least i can cross this off the list. the male model sent me an email looking for work for himself and another female in fine art or erotica. hum i wonder what people will think of this work’s category erotic/fine art? i’ve my own opinion but hey who am i?

if any readers are interested in working with me do get in contact with me through my web site. i only publish work here of paid models not some of my paid work which is private unless i am given permission.

this is a crazy city : N.Y. artist can paint nude models only after dark

October 13, 2011

NEW YORK (Reuters) – An artist arrested for applying body paint to a nude model in New York’s Times Square will have charges against him dropped if his models strip naked only after dark, according to a court agreement reached on Thursday.

Police arrested Andy Golub, 45, in July and charged him with violating public exposure and lewdness laws. He has been painting nude models for about three years.

Golub’s lawyer, Ronald Kuby, argued that New York laws do not prohibit public nudity in the name of art, and a compromise was reached that was the basis of the court ruling.

Under the agreement, “he is permitted to paint bare breasts any time, anywhere, but the G-strings have to stay on until daylight goes out,” Kuby said after a hearing in Manhattan criminal court.

State laws against public exposure exempt “any person entertaining or performing in a play, exhibition, show or entertainment,” Kuby said. Municipalities are allowed to devise their own restrictions, but New York City generally does not do so, Kuby said.

Golub, of Nyack, New York, said he likes to paint nude models because their bodies have energy and dynamism that he finds lacking in canvas.

“I feel that when I do live body painting it’s a good thing, a positive thing,” he said.

Charges against Golub will be dropped in six months if he abides by the terms of the agreement and is not arrested again. Charges against Karla Storie, a model from Texas arrested with him, will be dismissed if she too is not arrested again in the next six months.

Golub said he was planning to return to criminal court on Friday and paint a nude model in a park near the courthouse.

Diogenes daughter revealed living in NYC

February 9, 2011

this going to be a rambling post because that’s what i am feeling now. i don’t have my best listener here, it’s been 9 days since shadow passed away. i am slowly putting her stuff away bit by bit. why am i saving it? don’t really know, maybe i’ll want another dog but not soon.

life is moving along, i shouldn’t have any complaints now, no one to listen to them anyways. what ever problems i have i’ve created them myself because of the way i deal with or not deal with life. at least now i can turn up the music loud; Blondie ‘no exit’ and drown out the world without worrying about hurting doggies ears.

odd how these days come and go. yesterday was a lovely treat. i got a nice present in the form of a phone conversation that i didn’t expect. a young model came over to the studio wanting to work with me. she saw my work on a model mayhem page and asked to do a shoot. hey why not?

portrait of a young girl with gold chain

young woman portrait

i do portraits but i also wanted to explore women’s lingerie. open my horizons as it were. when i was a young man the only thing i thought about it was how fast i could get it removed but as i’ve aged i appreciate them more. i like to get pretty things for my honey, i think mary gets embarrassed when we go shopping for undergarments but i like the way she looks in them. it’s still a process of getting them off her but i like to know how pretty she looks under her clothes.

people contact me about all kinds of shoots and at some point i have to ask ‘ have you seen my portfolio? ‘ so it’s nice to find someone who has and likes to improv as i do. we began with her dressed in a white corset outfit and like every other thing in life new beginnings are delicate dance.

young woman

cute huh. but we were both pretty bored with this setting  so we moved the chair out of the way and i decided to explore something i’ve been think to do.

white corset

then CB we move in for our close up

young girl in white corset

white corset back

closer

close-up

corset laces

and i became fascinated with how close i could get with my lens, it not being a micro, and still get an erotic feeling to this session. so i moved the model around looking for interesting compositions. as i said we were both exploring, it’s not brain surgery.

white thong

but i would suggest if you’re photographing nudes it might be wise to do it in a warm studio. yes the lights do help somewhat and i wasn’t cold wearing a t-shirt but it might effect the pictures if it’s a bit chilly.

woman's boob with shadow

notice a lovely picture of goose bumps. we both like this picture but it’s not going to get this model any work without an explanation. oh well. then she asked if we could do something with a lantern she had seen on a shelf. ‘sure why not?’

Diogenes daughter

she didn’t know who Diogenes was but i am sure people won’t even ask seeing this picture. she loved this when she saw it. i am not sure if i like this one or the one below better.  she loved this picture as one she could send home to mom. that’s nice, i like helping young girls sending wholesome pictures back home from new york, ‘look mom what i’ve been up to?’

i did think she could show this picture to her grand children as to how she looked as a young woman, maybe not something you share with your children but grand children seem safely removed. they might never imagine what you looked like as a youngster.

Diogenes daughter listens

but what the heck we both had fun and no animals were hurt in the process.

submitting nude images to art contest

January 18, 2011

ugh a dastardly chore but it gives me a chance to sit here in front of my computer screen perusing hard drives and long ignored files. in a way i get to see my images in a new light as it were. today i processed color images to B&W and found some pretty cool images of a young female artist i had the privilege to work with a few years ago.

Caught

well to you observant types yes you’re right…this is a male image i threw in because i thought this was pretty cool and had worked on it also to submit to SHOTS magazine which is a B&W mag.

but i’ll try and show the images in color then B&W so we may see the difference. first let me say the young artist didn’t seem too happy with my images. she had said she was looking for images to post for fine art modeling. heck i thought that’s right up my alley so it should be pretty easy. at least i liked some of them.

young artist portrait

a bit dramatic i guess but we went all over trying different looks in the same dress and some not.

B&W

it’s hard for me to be objective about my work, love it when the clients are ecstatic but to get nothing from them is hard. i do meet a lot of people that way, maybe it’s a generational thing.

another version

then B&W

B&W

but just so you don’t get the idea we lost our vision for what she said she wanted images for we did some of these

nude female

and then this

B&W

yes the lighting is a bit dramatic as i was using my lowel lighting tungsten package.

reclining nude

but this image works much better in B&W than it does in color unlike the others above, but then what do i know, i just pushed the button

B&W

do i think any of these images are prize winning? i’ve no idea but it keeps me from causing too much trouble out here in the world, although i did submit a complaint against con edison to the public service commission and another to my landlord for the conditions in my public hallways today. it’s raining too hard to be wandering around the streets of New York.

adam & eve nudes or christmas is around the corner

December 23, 2010

trying to finish up this years work by editing the last shoot i & mary did with a visiting couple from out of town who contacted me. i thought it might be a way to finish my adam & eve pictorial. it’s really hard to begin working with people you don’t know, they don’t know what i am looking for and i don’t know what they need direction wise to express what i need.

sort of a rock and hard place for everyone. but i did like the fact that they were a couple and felt intimate with each other. thought that might help project what i was looking for. my direction might have confused them more than helped. oh well

but we begin with the basicsthis is a different lighting setup from my usual as i like to try different setups to see what happens if ? my basic work ethic. so we started out doing singles. mary handheld the 580 as the couple weren’t use to ‘finding the light’ so i had to figure something out fast.

nude male

adam

nude female

eve

then together

nude couple

adam & eve

actually the couple like these pictures but it’s so hard making selects, doing the time consuming retouching work on the background then finding this or that that i am not pleased with. ugh the creative process. but i say if i get one or two outstanding images from a shoot i am happy. well i’d love them all to be outstanding but that’s not how it works for me.

semi nude couple

what i did notice was the male partner was beginning to get excited by kissing and touching his wife. a pretty normal reaction i’d say. it happens to me. i always wonder how far it would go but not what i was looking for at the time. i am not opposed to doing an erotic shoot just not then. we all wanted to go to dinner as it was late.

resting head

i like the way she is touching his head here. very soft intimate feeling. but so far my favorite image is of her is below

nude female

what is seen is not all

well it could just be me and my fantasies but i like how her body seems to be interconnected yet we were going for her ‘being born out of ‘ the rock at this time.

after all what i am trying to do is capture the emotions either of a single person or a couple. i think this couple would like to go farther from what the’ve said. i am happy with some of what i got, it works for me

nude couple

nude couple

so if you’re ever in the new york city area and would like to participate in some intimate pictures of yourself with or without a partner drop me a line at www.jeneyoutt.com. i am sure we could work something out as i am always interested in interesting ideas.

but you take what you get and enjoy life. as they say when life gives you lemons make lemonade. well i’ve got to go and make my christmas banana breads. no lemons today
