I am officially done with Zooomr

Zooomr
I’m not going to rant about Zooomr. Sorry. Instead, I’ll just let you know that I will no longer use Zooomr to share my photos.

I haven’t really used Zooomr since the introduction of Mk III, but now it’s official. Today I moved the photos I had left on Zooomr over to my Flickr account, fixed any blog entries with Zooomr photos, and finally deleted all of my photos from Zooomr.

Meanwhile, here’s a new photo to start off the new year…

My favorite photo of Julie

A recent comment on one of my photos of Julie Simone reminded me that I haven’t posted many photos from that shoot, even though it was almost 4 years ago. So here’s my favorite photo of Julie.

What do you think of it?


Model photos added to the gallery

The gallery is still a work in progress, but I have added several collections of my favorite model photos. Let me know what you think.

Hair Tossing

At some point in the shoot, Liz and I were playing with tossing her hair. This was my favorite…

Five More of Liz Ashley

Here are five more photos of the beautiful Liz Ashley. These will probably be the last photos from this shoot that I post en masse like this, but there are plenty more keepers that I will post from time to time. In fact, I can’t think of a shoot where I’ve ever had such a high percentage of keepers. Big props to Liz for being such a great subject!


The Daily Dose

At the risk of looking like a Liz Ashley fan site, here is yet another set of Liz:

Photo Shoot: Liz Ashley

I shot with the lovely Liz Ashley today at Kevin Break Studio in Los Angeles. One of the cool benefits of shooting there are the several studio cats, who love models and are very agreeable to being photographed (even without a release).

Undiscovered Gem

Sometimes I like to go back through my image archives in search of undiscovered gems (Adobe Lightroom is great for this, btw)…

To make up for all of the non-nude content I’ve posted lately, here’s a shot of Martina Warren from a shoot we did in 2002.

Another one of Arielle from 2003

Arielle Lee, Los Angeles, 2003

I wish my digital black & white looked as good as my film work. I’m playing with LightZone, and the Zone Mapper tool is awesome once you figure it out, especially for black & white. So maybe one day I’ll be able to get such nice tones from my digital black & white.


Suzana Striped

Heather urged me to post more photos from my shoot with Suzana, so here’s another.


Your photostream has been viewed 473 times.

Since finally getting Flickr to open up my photos to the public, my photo stream has been viewed a whopping 473 times.

And this photo I posted just last night has already been viewed 261 times. Surprisingly no one has commented on it, though.

Despite my beef with Flickr and their stupid NIPSA policy, I really like Flickr, particularly its community features, which I think are what set it apart from Zooomr. I have pretty much settled the internal Flickr / Zooomr debate I’ve had with myself over the last couple of months, and I think Flickr is the winner. Zooomr Mark III will have to be a real masterpiece and their community will have to grow a lot more to change my mind.

While I’m on the topic of Flickr: I gave my permission to a fellow user to make a drawing from one of my photos. He posted a draft of it a few days later, and I’m really impressed. It’s exactly this sort of community that I want. I’ll make another, more detailed post about it shortly.


Portrait of Julie Simone

Julie Simone Portrait

Julie Simone

For some reason, I rarely post photos from the shoot with Julie Simone. But while I was playing with Lightroom, I came across this one and decided to mess around with it a little bit. As it turns out, I didn’t do much other than sharpening, but I liked it enough to post it. Enjoy!
