I actually received an email from somebody wondering if I could shoot their portrait in this style. I replied that I could, but I wasn’t available until early August. Like everybody these days, this person couldn’t understand that. They wanted it now. As an aside, that’s one of the things the internet has wrought on us. Immediacy at the expense of quality. Eventually after a few emails, my customer (different from a client) agreed.
I think that I’m going to post a few more portraits so that we are on the same page about what this “new” style of portraiture is really about. After all, you don’t see a whole lot of the human subject in this work. That’s my intent. If my customer want more of the human form in the picture, I suppose that I could make the base layer the top layer. I’d have to experiment to understand what it would do to the final image.
And, you know how I feel about experiments. About messing around. About tinkering.
Heh, heh, heh.
