Natural beauty

I find so many pictures of women nowadays “cool”, hard, flashy, “sexy” – utterly un-interesting and artificial. What’s wrong with letting a personality and some humanity shine through too? Why must you look like a plastic doll to advertise a product? I simply don’t get it, even if it is technically perfect.

As any other serious photographer I look for the person, for the joie de vivre, conviviality, humour, the sense of goodness and humanity that one can sense, not least through the eyes of a person.

So instead of cool, give me warm-hearted. Instead of hard, give me soft. Instead of flashy, give me natural light and the quality that does not appear in the first moment but when you look twice. And instead of sexy, give me beauty and sensuality.

I have no interest in doing photography that suits the advertising business. But if some business or corporation would give priority to natural appearance and personality inside the picture, I’d be happy to sell.

My first little entry

 Welcome to my photo blog…

It’s an experiment. It is informal. I’ll keep it clean and simple.

I want to find out whether this is a better publishing option than, say, WordPress. I want something simple, “minimalistic” and a place where photos can easily be thrown in…

And I contemplate writing – now and then – about:

• what I do and plan to do as a photographer

• what thoughts and ideas I have for the moment

• give you some insights into my photo project, reveal a little secret here and there

• write about art which I come across

 

First, may I ask you to check out what I have done so far – i.e. the last two years – here:

Please connect, “like”, become a friend, comment, criticize, appreciate … whatever.

But tell me, because that is what I learn from!
