The Changing Seasons: July 2016

My changing seasons post this month is a scheduled post.

I don’t have many photos from this month (yet) and the ones that I do have is basically just different takes on the same scene. I went nuts on the post-processing, but it was fun and I don’t regret it! Hehe. Hopefully, after the summer, I’ll have plenty of landscape photos and lots of portraits to share with you.

I also had time to create something artistic for the V2 (version 2) part of the challenge this month.

This is a double exposure (post-process) of a nude model that I shot in a studio and a monkey skull I captured at a scientific museum (Yes, I’m a geek that sometimes do “boring stuff” like visiting museums).

What’s this «Changing Seasons» blogging challenge?

«The Changing Seasons 2016» is a blogging challenge with two versions: the original (V1) which is purely photographic and the new version (V2) where you can allow yourself to be more artistic and post a painting, a recipe, a digital manipulation, or simply just one photo that you think represents the month. Anyone with a blog can join this challenge and it’ll run throughout 2016. It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t join the first month(s), late-comers are welcomed. These are the rules, but they’re not written in stone – you can always improvise, mix & match to suit your own liking:

These are the rules for Version 1 (The Changing Seasons V1):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery.
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.

These are the rules for Version 2 (The Changing Seasons V2):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post one photo (recipe, painting, drawing, whatever) that represents your interpretation of the month.
  • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!

Nude Portraits: Magda

There’s some nudity in this post. I know that nudity bothers some people because of their superstitions or work environment. In that case I suggest that you read a garden blog, a cat-blog or something else instead. (Fair warning given).

Photo Session with Magda

Here’s the first shot I’ll share with you of Magda. I’ll share some more when I have processed them, but I have a lot of photos to process and not so much time… Magda is an amazing model to work with. She’s professional and she has a magic sparkle in her eyes.

Portraits of Monika & Pamela

Model photography is on my schedule this coming weekend and I’m really looking forward to try out the new cameras in a different setting than usual. I thought I’d share a few model photos with you. These were shot with my ‘old camera’ two years ago. If your boss/management is retarded, one of these shots is probably NSFW and if it’s so, I suggest that you immediately change your job or even better: fire your boss/management!

When the Kitty Gets the Cream

This post was inspired by Wanda Wulz. Wanda Wulz (Trieste, 25 July 1903 – Trieste, 16 April 1984) was an Italian experimental photographer. In 1932, she joined the Futurist movement.The title of the post is a reference to «Remember Your Dreams» by King Missile. If you’ve ever wanted to learn a technique on how to remember your dreams, you’ll find it in this post: https://cardinalguzman.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/how-to-remember-your-dreams/
