Can't remember if I used this before, but I remember the last contest, none of my photos worked. So if this is a resubmit, please forgive me.

fiver Thanks! I really like that photo too, but I could never make it 'work' until I tried it in black and white tonight.

I love these threads. There's so many talented people here. I hate you all, and I mean that in the most flattering, envious sense.

chakalakasp: I'm curious what lens you're using Captain Jim

Both of them were with a Sigma 28-105mm with a +1 diopter Tiffen close-up filter shot at F2.8 I believe. I don't know what the focal length was, just what ever looked good. I was problably 3-4'away with a Sigma SD10 which has a 1.7 image multiplyer(sp)

Curious: CaptainJim you do nice work

Thank you very much

MrsReba your 2006-02-09 01:00:14 AM post leads me to believe that you are seriously twisted....I love it. Here is what I like do with Barbies and dried apple heads

Man, that's crazy, Captain Jim -- I actually have that lens (though I need to get it rechipped to work with my 20D), and I sure as hell never got bokeh that good from it! Awesome shot! :)

Remember everybody, the forums are there for you. Please use them heavily. Make them pine for the lazy days of their youth. Don't be shy about suggesting themes and commenting on suggestions, or anything at all.

eghtball14 - NOT a still life. Please look up the definition.

josh3736 - NOT a still life. It's an action shot. Please look up the definition. (Still a good shot.)

itsfullofstars - NOT a still life (but would pseudo-qualify, if the girl wasn't in it).

As far as I'm concerned anything goes and the interpretation is up to the artist :) I stick by what I said last night - if the artist felt comfortable submitting a particular photo for this theme then that's what they chose. It was all kind of up to personal interpretation.

Appreciate the kind word. The halo was one of the things I didn't like, but didn't have time to go back and redo. I realize upon reflection (heh) that I put most of my thought into subject matter and very little into composition, which is why I'm not terribly happy with it. Seems that a few people like it, though, so who am I to complain?

veruca:

Not at all. An artist cannot paint a landscape with thick oily strokes and then call it pointillism, or take a color photo and call it black and white. There are very specific categories of art. Anything mobile does not count as "still-life".

However, the title of the Farktography is "Modern Day Still Life" which leaves a lot open to interpretation. Modern Life is hardly "still" and many of these pieces, could conceivably be a shot in the mouth to this title. Therefore, I have no problems with the controversial shots in this thread. So long as they aren't trying to redefine a specific art form.

/art major
