Five Stars of the Week

bianca con casco, by etframboise

At first this image can be overlooked without a second glance. After some time admiring it, I got caught on the tensions created by the irregular posture of the model, the unexpected and creative use of a helmet on what could be considered a nude portrait (definitely something you don’t see everyday) and the contrast between the model’s skin tone and the prop. A very creative and masterful capture. My Five Stars of the Week.

    After looking at that shot I think my favorite thing is the film grain, i’ve been becoming more and more obsessed with realistic grain lately. I find that it can really add to the grit of an image.

    That could be a modern reinterpretation of Myron’s Discobole, from behind (the 5 stars one)

    I’m a big fan of the shot with the blue mask, such great tones, and the lighting is killer.

    magnificent photos…
    the one with the little girl caught me, it has really captured the pure emotion on her eyes and her smile, it’s like the longer i look at it i feel that she was looking thru me and that smile of hers could so much…
    i like the way you had the pictures in black and white and the film grain is magnificent it brings out life of the images captured…

    wonderful, wonderful piece of work..

    Love your shots. I agree with the last comment – Blue Mask one is my fav. Reminds me of a shot i captured on a recent photography holidays that I went on. Went down a storm. But I have to admit that yours i better. Keep on clicking!

    I couldn’t work it out at first glance-but the crash helmet adds a very unusual touch to an already very strong image. All the best Grant

    I am a bit late in seeing these photos but they are great. I especially like the use of negative space in the staircase pic.
