What a great idea, do you ever sleep or do you constantly dip into the stream of ideas until one sticks???Continue
hmm and idea for an event that will never happen. a celebration of motherhood. and all its glory.from materinty to pics with kids. and babies.
if your going to come down in a group. i suggest renting one of the vacation rentals that has two houses in a compound set. with a pool or garden between them.
I’ve been to Key West for Fantasy Fest many times - Lots of Fun – many photo opportunities. I would like to see a group trip.
I have heard that and would love to go there but I will be at another event on Halloween weekend., It's a shame too because I now have a great urge to go (WITH CAMERA)
if anyone wants a one in a year life time experience. come to key west for Fantasyfest. it is madi gra on steriods. body painting is the clothing of the evening. you will see everything under the sun. i still have flashbacks to things i wish i could unremember. (300+ person body painted throwsup to mind) but come anyways. i can help find you a place. or make it a group trip.
Also I would love to see a spot on here where we could all list our items for sale or something we are looking for as far as equipment or props. That would be cool. I know I have a few Nikon items left from my switchover and I know that there are probably some users here that would be interested. I have also talked to several photographers looking for certain props or outfits so it could be cool discussion group to create but make sure that FMN is not responsible for any bad deals and that it is between the photographers because there is always one out there that will ruin it for everyone and people end up blaming the host instead of the guilty party.
Hi Alex, I seem to go for the moment too. However I do have some projects going on here too for an unveiling in October. With FMN shoots. I look for places or things at the location that might go together in my head. AS of late most of my stuff seems to always border on the spooky or mysterious side. I attribute most of that to my life of growing up with a brother who always had crime scene photos at the dinner table or murder pics or vids to go over at home or my own job experience as a former crime scene officer in Ocala. And my interests in abnormal psychology and also horror movies. LUCKILY I am still more interested in understanding that area than participating in it LOL.
I have lived in Ocala for over 10 years now and have become so sick of the, BIBLE BELT people here and the mentality that everything must be like Mayberry RFD or Stepford and happy and cheerful. My life here has been quite the opposite and in my case Ocala will drive the happiness right out of you after it sucks you dry, so the dark side seems to be surfacing in all that I do. I try to show that either blatantly or lurking in the shadows of eyes or expression.
I am not anti God and am even lucky enough to have a cool church to go to here, but the PEOPLE around Ocala seem to only allow happiness and sunshine and push that so hard that it has created more of a counter culture of deprived people who are hungry for anything out of that norm. I have O.D'd on it. This place is VERY censored too so we spend as much time in Tampa as we can until we can afford to leave here and move there where we feel more relaxed and at home and among Kindred spirits.
Also being a Gemini, I do have a dual nature and FMN's events like the Pin up event and such, allowed me to enjoy some light hearted happy retro pin up type photography and sometimes that side will surface and enjoy some playful fun.
Another aspect that is part of my photography is I usually like to show women as strong or show their beautiful side,. Every woman deserves pics that show her beauty and sensuality or even the mystery that lurks underneath what you see. Other than that I can't put my finger on what it is that inspires me, sometimes it is a set piece, a costume, or a mood that the model and those two things combined create. The creativity of the sets and environment of you shoots gives to me is what I enjoy most. I can never anticipate what I will shoot until I get there and all these things come together and THAT itself inspires me.
Yeah, my photography professor liked to say, "If you want good pictures, take lots of them."
kurt, I've been taking nudes for about 6 years. i'm in ocala, have to find some models in the area. The FMN events are fun and i have met lots of cool people.
