Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
Over the last couple of weeks I've made a couple of hundred prints from my work with the idea of working up some kind of short portfolio, or four. In the near future I'll be putting them up online and asking for ideas about whether they work - but as an aside I'm going to try another type of shot.

Normally I'm reactive and intuitive with my photography rather than planned. This has given me a reasonable degree of success but I'm now at the stage where I'd like to do something different. So what I'd like from you, my slightly expanded fan-base, is some (vaguely serious) ideas for shots. They might be ideas (sunset) or more specific (me!) and I make no promises on timescales. But please shout with ideas, watch for the results over the next few weeks/months and I'll send you a print of any ideas I use and am happy with.

I've already got a list somewhere in the depths of LJ of people who were happy sitting for portraits (which I will get around to) and other ideas (some of which I might get around to) but don't be afraid to replicate/remind. More practical than "A tiger eating someone" if I was being picky though!

go on them

Both you and malenghast seem to focus on people. Your work seems to be dynamic capture the moment stuff.

My two suggestions would be
1) a Statue
2) a bowl of fruit. (in the style of a still life)

Re: go on them

Critique these then...

I've printed 3, 4 and the last two and they look lovely.

I've seen you do fantastic shoots with individuals and great unposed group shots so I want to see posed shoots with more than one person. :)

See my latest post for my photo challenge in Zagreb. :)

1. A bridge. I mention this because I saw a picture in the background of a scene in Lost last night and thought 'that's a nice angle shot of a bridge' and decided to try something similar myself if I got the chance.
2. Wildlife. If you want something more specific - a black coloured bird (e.g. crow or blackbird).
3. A flaw. How many different connotations?

Something 'striking' in red and black. [I have nothing particular in mind btw].

I'd be happy to sit for you.

If I can get a photo of me suitable for the Wilde Bags website, I'll "sit" for you... [gulp] I don't normally volunteer unless wearing a mask...

You could do close-ups of waves, particularly as you'll be seeing some this Whitby. Although it's a bit cold to be wading out into the sea with an expensive camera.

That's definitely on my list. I have some ideas I'm (slowly) working on.
