The rich, vibrant colors– reminiscent of an Eggleston photograph– gives a painterly feel. Coincidentally, I saw the Louisa Matthiasdottir paintings at the Tibor de Nagy gallery during my lunch break ( I work at the Time & Life bldg) and
the colors seem to have followed me home.
great nails color, good colorful stamps. Schuman, you took a picture of an old lady, i think it was one or two years ago, which was very funny to me. It was about an old fashion editor, i guess, during a fashion week, with a fur coat. I have a picture taken about 3 or 4 years ago, in the same position (IÂ´m younger, of course, rs), with a (fake) fur coat, and i also work with fashion (journalist). It was kind of saying to me that she could be me, older, rss… Best regards, Lilly
Oh for crying out loud, look at that darling smile and dimple. All the pretty girls indeed. I really like this post idea Scott. From an historical perspective it’s quite thrilling for me to see lots of women working in what was a traditionally male profession. Like it’s normal as rain. Go Girl Power!
Dress is probably some big designer, but wild print totally reminds me of silky, nice weight rayon dress line Jams World designed that was huge rage here (Hi.) in 90′s. Lots of different bright crazy fabric, nicely fitted designs, cool, comfy yet stylish. A nice change from all the tropical flower prints that dominate here, and get tiring.
I admire women who can carry lots of colors on them, without getting lost in them! me, I can’t do it! This lady carries it very well (but I wish the pose was more spontaneous, cuz this outfit deserves it)
p.s. I adore your photos Scott! I’m checking here everyday to get some inspiration in my office -with lots of papers on my table:) This blog is like a daily inspiration breeze to me!
cheers from France,
I think in photography there is some rule called the 2/3 rd rule, and I would say this photo fits into that rule, the tight edited shot, one does while taking the photo, is a measure of a good photographer, and of course the self styling makes it strong also…..
Is that the girl from Swedish love affair? If so, she has never looked so good. That dress really must be good for her coloring. Usually she looks quite different. I really have a hard time wearing so many colors, but maybe it does brighten up your complexion.
I own the same kind of camera and I can’t help feeling that the girl in the picture is somewhat awkward. The viewfinder on Canon’s G series has no purpose but an aesthetic one, as you’ll realize once you try taking a picture by looking through one. She is, at the very least, aware of the fact that she is being photographed and her awkward pose certainly makes me uncomfortable. This blog, however, isn’t about photography, and I certainly don’t ask for professionalism with models on the street.
The reason this photo can be “staged” is that 1) the phone is blocking most of the lens and 2) the screen for the camera is flipped up and she appears to be looking at the back,not the screen.The camera looks to be one of the Canon G series most likely the G11 or G12.Her finger isn’t even on the shutter button,maybe she was just preparing to take a photo.Either was,she’s quite cute.Can’t take that away from her.
