Macro - Image Heavy - Safe for Work

I've been neglecting LJ these days trying to keep up with Facebook. The fact that Facebook hasn't caused someone to have a breakdown and go postal with its never-ending stream of messages, requests and flashy-bits has me amazed; but that's a post for another time.

I've looked at macro photography for a long time, but I never tried it myself. That was until a couple of days ago. No clue what I'm doing and no idea what the techniques are, but that has never stopped me from doing stuff before. :) I have a tough time locking my camera down on a tripod. I'm far too impatient and impulsive to for it. Macro photography was no different.

Maybe if I get frustrated enough I'll stop trying to handhold something that can have a depth of field of 0.025mm deep .... maybe.

Anyway, very first macro shots ... learned quite a lot in a couple of hours ...

Reminiscing

Had a late night at work last night and while waiting for the presses to stop, found myself looking at a directory of some random burlesque images. Bored so created a quick slide show with them.




I really miss these days of shooting burlesque and shows. Might need to revisit why I quit.

Spring Line

Some of the images from a quick shoot I did for idolatrē clothing - 2010 Spring line.

A tiny room filled with models and me, leftover Halloween netting and two speedlites equals:

The Attraction

I had a really interesting conversation with someone at work last week. We were talking about photography and the things I shoot and the question came up 'When did you realize you liked the stuff you do?'

What he really was asking is, 'When did you realize you liked fetish fashion?' I thought about it seriously and realized that there has never been a time that I didn't like it. Honestly, almost everything I can think of as my favorite things from my childhood that involved women had an element of fetish fashion in them. My biggest crushes growing up involved these women. Hell, I still think Gabrielle Drake as Lt. Gay Ellis is the perfect woman.

Take a look at these images. They're the types of things that li'l DMHolman, from the time he was probably 5 or 6, searched out and loved. Compare them to what I shoot now and you'll see what I mean.

First up, of course, Gabrielle Drake:

Uh-huh

I don't think there's any more reason to actually get up and leave the house anymore. Proof that we are in the last days:
