Just read the updates on the different projects: Apassionata part2
My mother got tickets for some friends and asked me if I wanted to come along for the new Apassionata show - I have to admit it was the photography (art and stock) opportunity that made me say yes
So at the end of May you can expect some new packs and I will bring my tripod along this time to get them in better quality - promise! So, the tripod didn't help that much - I brought it alright but I couldn't really use it because our seats this year sucked ass big time. I only had a very small area where I could take pics without spotlights or people's heads getting in the way. I'll uplaod the few photos I could take over the next days but the quality is not as impressive as I had hoped it to be. Still, for drawing reference it could work alright. Couple part2
Our Liz got herself a new boyfriend and as it seems, he's actually a keeper
Unlike her previous guys, who I mostly got to know as "that guy she's dating", Klaus seems to have enough personality to be an equal partner for her and he's pretty open-minded about her hobbies (which include stock-modelling) and her friends (which includes... uhm... me
). The combination of these aspects is probably going to result in the two modelling for this account sooner or later. Next time they're both in Vienna (and find time for poor, lonely, little me
) we'll set up a shoot.
Since the couple packs are among the most popular of this account I'll try and get some new ones similar to those (maybe with more subtle clothing) and depending on how Klaus is doing we'll see what we can come up with.I guess you've already seen some of the new couple shots - I don't know if there are more to come. Liz is stressed out at the moment and the two had a difficfult time not too long ago. They are still together but I don't want to press things with making them pose for me... we'll see. BBW
I'm thinking about modelling myself - mainly to see if I can do it
Until now I only had my little flat where it was hard enough to find space to shoot with another model, let alone having to run back and forth to set the timer. In my new flat in Vienna I could do that without the risk of knocking over the camera constantly.
Now, as for the topics you can expect: I am a big woman (big as in overweight for the slow-of-thinking
) and I'm thinking about topics where my size can actually be beneficial. At the moment I'm toying with the idea of something along the lines of "Mother Earth" or "Gypsy Queen". However, I do not plan on stripping naked or display erotic shots in any way. That's just not me and, frankly, I do not trust the world wide web or the people using it to publicly display shots like this. Uhm, yeah. No photos of yours truly so far. It's not that I didn't want to but I just didn't feel like it yet. I'm not saying it's never gonna happen, though, I just had other things on my mind lately. Animals
Well, that's not exactly a surprise, is it?
Last week I got myself an annual ticket for both the Zoo Schönbrunn and the "House of the Sea" in Vienna - the latter may also provide some cityscape shots as there is an awesome observations deck on top of the building.
Oh, and I have a black cat now - expect some Salem-photos soon (and yeah, that's actually his name - not my decision, though
).Salem's a diva, I'm sorry but he didn't approve of the photos so far. Nah, I just was too lazy The zoo tours will come back once I'm back to Vienna. Expect more packs of that kind in fall. Models
Jazz and Liz are still around - we don't have any special plans so far, but they are still around and when it strikes us, we'll have another shoot. As for new models I don't have anything scheduled, yet, but there is a possibility of new male models - one of them being Klaus, of course, then there is Lukas (who can be seen in the Archer-series and is likely to do more warrior-like poses for us) and maybe a colleague and good friend you haven't met yet.
I don't want to promise anything I cannot keep - so don't get your expectations too high. Still, if you have topics you'd like me to illustrate, please let me know. I know I'm incredibly unreliable when it comes to requests (which is why they are more or less closed now) but I am grateful for inspiration Didn't get to meet with Jazz over the past two months since I'm back at home and she's still in Vienna - will think of new projects once Uni starts. Liz, as I said, is under tough pressure with becoming a nurse, I hope she can get a clear head once the last tests are over (which should be soon) then we can think of new stuff. I did buy funny body paint so I might slap some colour on her face - the point about suggestions still stands, btw. RULES
1) Obviously, let me know if you used my stock. No need to ask BEFORE you want to use it!
2) I hereby grant all DeviantArtists permission to use my stock in any and all Deviant Prints without restriction
If you want to use it outside DA that's fine too - I'd be grateful, though, if you could tell me beforehand what you're going to use it for and I'd like to see the finished product, if possible.
EXCEPTION: The Apassionata photos are NOT to be used in ANY commercial way!
3) Please credit me in the description with a link to my account - after all my work is part of yours.
4) Concerning requests: Sorry, I don't take requests anymore. I had to realise I cannot fulfill them most of the times, anyway, because it's hard to schedule a quick shoot with my models. What you can do, however, is suggesting themes and topics for stock-series etc.
5) Concerning packs: Click on the preview image to see a bigger preview image. Click "download" to get all the single images (in a big version) in one rar-pack. If there are links in the descriptions you have the option to only get single photos of the pack, these single pics are located in my scraps.
6) Please do something creative with the images. I don't consider level adjustment and contrast-changings as highly productive (unless it's for study purpose).
Don't repost my stock images as photography and don't use them to create your own stock images, if you want to do something like that ask me at first and we can talk about it. CLUBS
