Ode to Motherhood :)
haha no idea what to call this, I keep thinking about my Dad's comments about being attracted to pregnant women because I know they're fertile. Sad to say I've never had any children of my own, so perhaps he's right. I'll add some comments later, but I wanted to post this one now while I was thinking of it. I was uploading some to facebook when I remembered 'Oh, right, women's breasts not allowed!' This is my lovely friend, model and art director Kerstin. She's German and French, so basically she never learned to be ashamed of her body.

Tigerotika II
This gem from 1995 believe it or not, when this technology was in it's infancy. Collaboration with D.R. Greenlaw aka Dennis Greenlaw, AOL Graphics Forum - Photoshop 2.0 and Ray Dream Designer #photosbykevinroberts

The model Bobby Bryant nailed this. We airbrushed the stripes and shot her on ES100 film in the studio on a black background. I scanned the transparancy I believe I got the image to the artist of floppy disk :dance:

It's always ourselves we find in the sea
Title from the e.e. cummings poem  'maggy and milly and molly and may'

From a series of test shots and time exposures, mostly with my dance models who seem to instinctively understand the concept and have ideas how to work with it. I have several from this photo session I'd like to share.

Average exposures for these range from 1 to 3 seconds, depending on how energetic the wind and waves are. Usually done at dusk with tripod, low ISO, neutral density filter, and small aperture.

DA Copy Rights and Wrongs!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 26, 2012, 1:01 PM


I'm so frustrated with the complete lack of support from DA admin regarding another member that pirated some of my work. I'm considering only uploading low-res images and watermarking them, even though they were originally stolen from another site. That would pretty much ruin the whole experience as far as I'm concerned, for me and probably for some of you as well.

witchdocktor.deviantart.com (Todd Wood) had a dozen photos of mine in a gallery he called Cape Cod Nudes. Originally stolen from DOMAI or MET-art, he cropped out the identifying info, claimed them as his own, offered them as prints, and submitted them to various DA groups.

Several other members called him on it and contacted me as well. He ignored us and hid our comments. I finally sent him a legal document, a 'Copyright violation  a serious crime' type rather than a 'What the hell are you doing with my photos?' and he finally removed them. Now DA customer service says because he took them down willingly (I call it disposing of the evidence) and they didn't see it themselves (because it took them several days to respond) that there's nothing they can do.

Here's on of the screen shots in my gallery fav.me/d4notd1

I have to wonder how many artists have had the entire online experience ruined like this.

Not just by thieves like witchdocktor. I've had my work ripped off many times, that's not what upsets me the most. There will always be lowlifes that can only steal and not create, that try to take credit and profit from others hard work. The worst part is the total lack of support from DA! Even eBay was more helpful, and getting a hold of customer service there is a challenge. to say the least.

I used to love it here, and I've spent a good bit of money too. Not only have I been a paid member for two years but I've given points and ordered prints from other artists, plus I've purchased t-shirts, mouse pads, coffee cups, puzzles, and canvas prints for myself and my customers. The legality of copyright issues aside, it just doesn't make sense from a business point of view.

I'm just very, very disappointed in DA's lack of support. I have screen captures of all witchdoktor's galleries clearly showing the stolen images, date and time and so on. As far as DA is concerned though, if the thief manages to dispose of the goods before he's apprehended then there's no crime!!!

It's the antithesis of everything artists do here, especially given the fact that we all share so freely.

Thanks for letting me rant. I'm interested if any of you have has similar experiences.

Keep The Faith,
Kevin

Yes, Aria was my model, and we had photos at MET & DOMAI. I just heard she's expecting a baby so maybe I'll get to photograph her again soon!
