what do you think about the background figure relationship in the image?aki
I am reminded of avant garde stage craft, maybe even kabuki theater, which has potential. The coloration is what made me think to try sepia. I am uncertain if the starkness adds or detracts at this point. Yet, this is the only photo I have tried to work with so far. I may have a less ambiguous response as I go deeper into the series.
you should be getting a stronger general public response to human figuresthe human figure is something that everyone has a lot of familiarity with.it should make room for strong emotional responses. It's what makes the dying christ and the sitting buddha so effective as images. about technique. it needs more cowbell. aki
Cowbell: Where I come from such is used to make it easier to locate one's herd. Could you clarify?My knee-jerk is directed toward the herd mentality but cannot disagree that the preference, at least in photography, is for human form or architecture (who knows why the latter). That said, I am more comfortable with the inanimate or landscape, which may in itself be more of an argumnent for a forced study of the human form. Realizing this, however, takes me back to the original notion I had when preparing these photos years back: raw might be better.
more cowbell from an SNL skit.i use it to indicate thati know nothing about art techniqueu sound miffed.i am not ragging on u, ur subject or ur viewers.cheerioaki
Didn't take it that way nor intended any ill will. I appreciate your input.
I am listening to jazz at the moment. The drummer occasionally hits his cowbell. After watching the link, my ear has been sensitized to the degree that I change the station. I like jazz, a lot, and hope someday I will be able to return to that particular early Cal Jader tune, and again appreciate its place in the history of that music. Blue Oyster Cult may take longer. See, the trick is to keep beat with the gold diapers, a feat that to date has escaped me.
