Why nobody says Jeanloup Sieff? Not natural light or not to your taste?

Sieff natural? Everything has a halo around it. Even if it is natural, it certainly doesn't look natural to me.

All right so you're telling me, although he used daylight, he might as well have used artificial light because his photos are so manipulated right?

No, I am saying that even if he used natural light, the result of whatever it is that he does is anything but natural in appearance. That's all. N.b. I did not express any like/dislike of his work, I simply do not [personally!] find it in keeping with the general objectives of available light photography.

Sorry Rorye - wasn't being a you-know-what. As I skimmed through the posts I must have missed your post - or thought it was a different photographer. Sorry again mate.

Not at all Bob, I meant that with humour :)
Once again, the lack of inflection on the web gets me.
I thought it funny because "Snowdon Sittings" is a book I look at literally every week, you'd think I could spell his name!
Best,
Rory

Also amongst us, Nicole Boenig-McGrade does mostly natural light work, I believe.

Yousuf Karsh is my favorite. He may have used reflectors though, I can't recall.

Karsh used natural light?

I'm pretty sure he used continuous light photofloods, which is still artificial light.
