Not posted for ages.... loads of personal stuff....

Anyway getting to the point of my journal post! I find it incredulous that a fellow artist would ban me from commenting on their work just because I couldn't understand the artistic merit of a photograph they posted. The person will remain nameless so as to save possible embarrassment to them. The photo was in my humble opinion just a piece of voyeurism on a pretty young lady. She stood in the kitchen of someone's flat looking straight at the camera completely nude. The kitchen looked like the sort from a show room (not lived in). It was taken with flash and imho no attempt was used to create anything arty. Thus imho was just trashy porn. I didn't say all of the above, but that was my thought. I complimented the model as he had said not to post nasty stuff about them :D I didn't so why the ban? I think the guy just couldn't handle criticism. He is quite big in da nudity circles :D; sorry couldn't resist! So why do this; I have no idea what his issue is and an unable to respond in a mature way.

Oh well life is too short; but just wanted to get that off my chest! Oh and no I'm not a prude who is ashamed of the human form :)

I love art in all it's forms and have played with photography over the years using various pocket cameras. Now I have a DSLR Sony A200, I would like to improve my photographic eye and take better shots. I can feel hardcore photographers reeling at my choice of camera but money was tight and the spec looked good as did the reviews. Also I once knew a professional photographer and he said that it's not the tool that counts it's your eye... you can buy equipment until it comes out of your ears but the "perfect" shot could potentially be taken with a pin hole camera. Anyway I stand by that and hope I don't receive too much camera snobbery!! PS I am an old hand in other artistic media especially pastels, which I love for the way I can blend the colours using my hands. I also love ceramics.
