Part of a resharshing of a play. The dress was good but halas, the floor is horrible so I had to cut the bottom part. This is a piece open for collabs and dialog because I think there, she is in a dialog .
Very nice use of motion blur! A photo bursting with energy and vibrant colo(u)rs.
Là, y avait pas de logique à part qu'à mon avis, ils se sont arrangé pour que tu aies une DD méritée enfin, c'est mon avis, parce que je ne vois pas d'autre raison pour les admins de changer une catégorie sans rien demander...
Moi non plus, m'enfin j'ai eu une photo transférée en dessin parce que floue, et une étude de nu transféré en conceptuel parce qu'il n'y avait vraiment rien à mater, alors maintenant je met les trucs au plus près, sans être garantie que le staff verra ça comme moi. C'est pas grave.
I thank again and for featuring one of my pieces. And all people who have an interested in it, who gave favorites, comments, watch, who add a tour of my galleries.
I try to thank individually the more I can but I cannot all, and it is probably unfair that I also spend a few minutes to answer people that are rude to the admins or to me instead of visiting interesting people. But I try to answer also a few questions for those who ask genuinely about a shot that appears unusual to them. Of course not, the blurr here is not accidental. It is just another visual technique. As legitimate in my opinion as use of DOF, use of balance and unbalance, use of colors or lack or it, of constrast. Others use it as well, I use it frequently, see my "trees" folder. This is a shot on the verge of abstraction. A thing made of information, pixels, light, a visual objet. It can evocate thoughts in your mind, but it is not a lady with a vantail, nor a pipe . It is, merely, a visual something. Abstraction means "removing". So the movement is a way to remove details that are distracting, to convey what is important in my eyes. The deep reddish color of the vest and the golden background , the nervous movement of the hand with vantail and the energetic movement of the walking silhouette. And the large part of the void, that is something very important for me in my way to compose. The play is something very well known in French culture, I will not resume it but let's say that it is about love missing its object because of delusions about appearance. I wanted to make a big series about the reharshings, trying to catch both the amateur actors in their way of working and the spirit of the play. Due to circumstances, I had only two shots that I liked enough on those I took. It would probably have been easier to understand within a series because I am a serialist.
I dont care to look at profile if people are not at last, articulate and polite. I do look and try to answer by best to negative comments and questions if I think they are genuine sincerity. Cannot please everyone on earth (and in fact : I will hate that).
Une remarque négative peut être désagréable, et légitime tant que ça reste poli, que c'est une question ou une appréciation. Le coté insulte gratuite, c'est un peu partout pareil, il y a des cornichons intolérants ou des teenagers qui essaient d'attirer l'attention sur eux.
This kind of work does not forces me into anything... on the opposite it invites me do a nice set of thoughts and visions... So maybe... it is not a question of the work but of the viewer. On my side, there are things that don't speak to me.
So why to put do's and don'ts on art ? Why this need of putting our own rules as universal rules ? You like to have more obvious things to see in a work of art, some don't need that.. there is room for everybody.
In fact you did put a don't : you say a work do not have to force the imagination... this quite a strong « don't » !
This picture does bring me feeling/ideas.... maybe not you... but not everything is ok for everybody. Your own work does not interest me : it does not bring me any feeling ( except maybe that you are an anime /manga fan). But I don't conclude it's a bad work. It's just a work that does not interest me. I guess it does interest people...
Do you see the difference ? I don't say your work should be that or that...
What? Disney and MTV aren't bullshit. They don't try to educate nor to change your mind, they are good leasure for the watcher.
I won't ask Donald Duck to make philosophia, but I won't ask a philosopher to shut up just because he talks about things I can't understand. I won't ask Lady Gaga to make art, but I won't ask an artist to stop expressing himself.
We all are different, we see the world with different eyes, minds, needs... I'm sure you are able to accept this.
of course I accept it, but in this case, I just can't find any thing that makes the picture "deep.. fantastic and interesting"... the photo doesn't transmit anything to me.. that's the reason why I (and some others) want to know.. what do you see?..
It may not transmit anything to you and I don't think it should be a problem.
Here, it's not about what I see but what I feel in front of the image (if it's blurred, it is not for showing appearances). The title comes from the french theater play: Cyrano, the shot is one of the scene of the play: Roxanne in love. Here I feel some light spontaneous move, the lightness of being maybe? But in the same time the wait of an answer...
I feel that those works which put imagination to move, give to the viewer the possibility to travel inside the image, if they want and feel like this and I really enjoy this.
