Respect our Models Week - Compilation
During a week, starting on February 2nd, and ending on 8th, we've been trying to give a spot of respect and admiration to the Models.
They, the models, make a big effort for us to be able to show images full of emotion and life. Without them, millions of photos wouldn't mean anything.
Lately we've been seeing a lot of immature and disrespectful comments regarding the aspects of models, and that's a no-no road for us, and so there're a few things you might not know:
:bulletblack: What's the beauty? Can you answer? You probably can, but you probably will answer with your thoughts, and what's a thought? A personal idea.
Beauty can be everything, and when we're showing our works in an artistic platform, we expect the feedback to be constructive in the lines of how the work was developed - not how the model is ugly to your eyes.
That's something that we certainly don't care about.
Be mature, as we think you are, and instead of providing a critique about the external

Photojournalism: An Ethical Approach
If you click the link (title) you'll be directed to an online edition of a book originally published by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Publishers, Hillsdale, New Jersey, 1991: Photojournalism An Ethical Approach by Paul Martin Lester.
I consider it food for thought and reflection about photojournalism and ethics and thus would like to share it with you.
Now follows an excerpt to lure you into reading the full version:
A photojournalist is a mixture of a cool, detached professional and a sensitive, involved citizen. The taking of pictures is much more than F-stops and shutter speeds. The printing of pictures is much more than chemical temperatures and contrast grades. The publishing of pictures is much more than cropping and size decisions. A photojournalist must always be aware that the technical aspects of the photographic process are not the primary concerns.
A mother crying over the death of her daughter is not simply an image to be focused, a print to be made, and a picture to be

Nostalgia by nighty Nostalgia :iconnighty:nighty 7,441 993


Exams are over! Finally. It seems like I have been cooped up inside for ages just staring at notes and computer screens. Right after the final paper I went around to see Airdrie (Joolz by Airdrie) over at Insert Name here (Georges on Collins), she has a couple of really cool designers joining the store (Eva Q and Hamish of T Shirt Garage). They were preparing for Hamish's welcome event and I got roped into shooting my very first runway! Tons of fun with all the models and waiting for guests to arrive! After wards walked to Fitzroy, got yelled at by druggies, met another awesome designer whom I'll be collaborating with early next year. Our shoot for tomorrow is unfortunately postponed due to immensely crummy weather but definitely looking to some exciting new looks next year =D

I will be traveling soon and returning to Melbourne in February. Will be (or trying to be) updating the Blog with new photos and shoots and hopefully interesting tidbits. So hop on by!

I think my subscription to dA is also running out soon. Will definitely miss it =D I liked doing image features and various other things so this will probably be the last time everything looks pretty on the page.

What else is everyone up to this summer? Let's hear all the exciting plans =)

Oh dear, carbonmade is beyond pretty. Very very pretty.
