From Saturday
[On the train, which is 40 minutes late getting from Birmingham to Coventry - 60 minutes rather than 20]

On Saturday I spent some time pretending I knew how to take photographs with ingenue_the for her not-so-sekrit new venture.

The bulk of the photos aren't really for LJ consumption (appearing at a website near you soon) but here's two. I'm assuming they're worksafe but if anyone complains I'll put a warning and a cut up.

EDIT: Cut for size. Discussion on whether male nipples are any more or less worksafe will follow in comments.





Well, I like them. Let me know what you think.

Not a complaint about the content - but any pictures that size make LJ non-work-useable for the day for me.

I can see that some workplaces might not find number one "safe" - and it is huge. Nice costume in number two. :)

I am made of agreement!

Do you think naked male nipples are any more or less worksafe than female ones then?

My guess would be they are - but I assume that was one implication you are agreeing with.

I would say they are slightly more worksafe than female ones. But I can see that some workplaces might not find them "safe" - and it is huge. Nice costume in number two. :)

I'd say they are less worksafe - in my working environment.

Any pictures which are obviously not work are not worksafe. They're an indication that I'm looking at a non work-related site.

The problem with male nipples is that they would cause one particular person in the area to make loud assertions about my (presumed) sexuality, rather than just "harrumphing" in the case of female nipples - worse, assertions which should I make the equivalent assertions regarding her would result in a very quick trip to a disciplinary panel, and a written warning on my record. Curiously though, harrassment by women (however inaccurate or pathetic) is not regarded as harrassment.

I think she would miss the point.

Professional quality.

So - do you think I could get you and Jo in front of a camera at some point?

I won't insist on nipples :-)

I'm not sure ~proper~ photo taking isn't taking things a bit far - until I knock down the garage and build a little studio I've no proper space and I seem to be running out of excuses to evict grendelchild and use his current room.

On the other hand I'm keen to "have a go" with people that I think I can count on not to laugh too loudly at the results. Confidence is slowly building.

Mind you, I can see the attraction of a nice presidential portrait to print on huge banners to hang around the Bristol Pear (Berlin Station c.1940)...

Me likes.... Want a model sometime?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: October 26th, 2004 04:04 am (UTC) (Link)
Absolutely. As long as you promise to be nice ;-)

Look me up on IM sometime (contacts on userinfo) and we can chat?

Careful, you may find yourself with a superfluity of offers.

Now you promised me you'd make time to do the "Andy 2005 Calendar" :-P
From: kingandy Date: October 26th, 2004 04:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Name a date, I'll be there. Though it would be better for me if you could come to Manchester, obviously. ;)

Nitpicking - hopefully useful

I think I would have had your lovely model lower his chin and brows and tilt his face downwards a bit on the second one, and a greater depth of field would have allowed you to focus on his face as well as the boot. Alternatively less depth of field would have made it clearer where you were focussing. I would also have straightened the sheet under his feet so as not to detract from the boots.

The first one I can find nothing to complain about.

I actually really like both of them though. The pose on the second one is lovely for showing off the outfit.

Re: Nitpicking - hopefully useful

All good points.

I suppose I'd better come clean and admit the second one was posed by ingenue_the - not me at all - and as you imply to show off the boots and jacket rather than the model (who might well be anonymised for the final pic she's going to use). I just did a bit of Photoshop and some basic camera positioning.

The first one was just cropped a tiny bit from the original image. I did experiment a little with cropping to change the vertical position of the nipple, but in the end left it pretty much where it was shot.

I like both of them. I have a really nice book of photos of piercings and that one is done in a similar style and as good quality. I'd be interested to see if your ability to capture people has got better since the last set you took of me, it seems to but I don't know if I just didn't come out as well. If you fancy taking any sometime let me know(would also be nice to see the difference a photgrapher makes as another friend is taking some pics of me soon).
