Call for Photos
« on: 14 May 2009, 15:42 »

I am posting this here because everyone who posts/reads the Arts and Crafts subforum knows that nobody actually ever goes into the A&C subforum. I actually would like participation, so it's going here.

I need your guys' help! I am sick of doing self portraits, so I would like to know if anyone would be willing to help me out by photographing themselves in poses I need. I'm looking to do a series of portraits and the more people who help me out, the better! In return, I'll post photos of my work and maybe even send you one of the sketches I do before I do the finished painting/drawing. If you're interested, see the theme and rules below.

Theme:
I have a ton of square canvases I'd like to use up, so right now I'm looking for poses that look like a person is trapped in a box and trying to break out of it. Look cramped, contort your body a little bit, and look like you're in pain or uncomfortable. You don't have to do this in an actual box (I'd rather you didn't), since what I'm really after is how the body is shaped not how the light is, etc. Be creative with your posing! Make weird facial expressions, put yourself in odd shapes, etc. (Also, once I move on from this, I may update the theme if you're interested!)

Rules:
1. Please do not wear overly baggy clothing, but also do not post photos of you in the buff. The latter because 1. I'm pretty sure it's against the rules and 2. I don't want to see you naked! If you want to do this in your skivvies, PM me first about it and we'll discuss it. I do not want anyone being creeped out or to get in trouble for doing this. If you're not sure about whether or not a photo is kosher, post or PM a link.
2. Do not make your photos tiny. If possible, don't resize it and just post a link to save on bandwidth. If you really want to post a photo, post a photo of appropriate size and link to a larger image.


So. Anyone want to help a lady out?

My girlfriend is an art student doing a project based loosely on feelings of being trapped and stuff, so I'll get her to do a few snaps of me and maybe and some of her, and we'll have them linked up by early next week if thats not too late.

what if I did it nude, then photoshopped out nipples, genitals and body hair. Would that still be awkward?

Anything from the front or side that would be how you'd be stuck in a box that is just big enough to hold you.

Yes, it's still be awkward! Except more weird! You'd be a big fleshy blur or completely hidden behind a ribbon.

Cam-whorre
I took some pictures this morning because the light was pretty good and it was super fun even though I feel lame doing it! The frame was actually just sitting in my spare room so I grabbed it, if there are specific poses you want I won't mess with it anymore. I can pm you the link for higher res if you want to use them:)







Other people who promised pictures, please please put them up, I can't wait to see what people come up with!

this sounds like a fun thing to do at 1am
just so you know how much effort is going intot the photos I'm taking - I got re-dressed, shaved, found my camera, figured out the self timer, and spent quite a while finding my camera charger.
I just took half a dozen shots, but for what ever reason my camera had put them in black and white, so I'm guessing that's not what you want.

edit: and my camera has decided it doesn't feel like working today, how wonderful. I'll try again tomorrow.

Black and white is fine! I can do a black and white underpainting and glaze over it. No one will know. Except you. I want to see them anyways if you put that much effort into them, if your camera didn't decide to eat them or something.

Andy, you should totally get a small frame and do facial expression pictures! Like just face and a hand or two trying to bust out the the frame? Tadah no body image issues.

Dang, I had something good, until I re-read the rule about no baggy clothing... Ironically, it's just my pants, and they're exceptionally baggy because I are exceptionally skinny. They fit my sub-theme though.  :|

I didn't actually manage to get the picture I wanted (I'm working with me, myself, and a timer), and my father came home and I didn't want to explain where my knife collection comes from (Shhhhh). The picture I wanted would have looked like 5:27 of this video.

Anyhoo:
