    Haha, but at least you can support yourself, because it's art and not pornographic, I'm not selling the images individually or anything (because I'm sure people would buy them at high prices) because I respect my models and want them to be seen in the light I intend which is beauty and art, not perversion, so, for now, not many have seen them. One of my models insisted I print one for her because she wanted to see it on paper and she exclaimed "OH it's so beautiful!!! thank you Stone!!!" over the phone when she got my mail. It was nice, she was a friend though not a random person, so who knows how much she was making me feel good over appreciating the work, but I'm sure she did like it.

    Dude, that is judgmental, rude and, like most sweeping generalizations, surely inaccurate. I find it interesting to read ugly words like that from someone defending the rights of photographers to be viewed with respect and without prejudice.

    There are a lot of women who don't want to be treated as a piece of meat, actually. Even attractive ones, as you'd put it. Comments like this offer a hint about why people might be sensitive to having their photos taken by strangers. Respect for the feelings of others can be shown in a lot of ways -- as can its opposite.

    that is about as lame and pathetic as it gets ...


    btw: stone to be shooting your subject professionally you need to be selling your work ...
    shooting and having a collection of genitalia photographs doesn't mean you are a professional ..
    did you see 8mm? there is a market for this sort of stuff ... or so it seems ...

    Yeah I don't talk too much in here about the Mapplethorpe influence on some of my work. But there is definitely some of it (not on Flickr). It can get interesting when genres meet.

    Ken
    Apologies, I can be a bit slow sometimes. It finally twigged what you were talking about.

    With the photo', I was trying to create a sense of action, as in 'this is me on the street, passively looking for the next opportunity to trip the shutter'.

    Usually if nothing is in the offing, the camera will be in my right hand at my side.

    I never follow fashion. For a start it changes to frequently so would cost a fortune to keep pace. Further, fashion followers (of all areas, not just clothes) display a complete lack of individuality or original thought and harbour a painful fear of alienation by their peers.

    Besides, I've always worn jeans and t-shirts.

    Oh, Ken's just messin' with ya!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    To be honest it's been pretty hard with this thread knowing who's what why where and when.

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."
