Wow!! Almost 110,000 pageviews, two daily deviations, and hundreds of comments, and this is my first journal entry!!  I'm such a slacker!!

Thanks to all those who viewed my recent Daily Deviation, "Some of Its Parts"… featuring the amazing model Mandy.  I wish I could respond to all the over 300 comments this image has received in the past 24 hours, but I'd be at my keyboard for days!!  

All your comments were read and appreciated, whether your liked or disliked the image. Most of the comments were overwhelmingly positive. Even comments criticizing my post processing technique were appreciated, and will definitely be kept in mind as I create future images.

I do find in fascinating that the people who wrote the most negative comments (less than 10 at current count) have a tough time explaining why they found the work "disgusting" "inappropriate" "really ugly" or, in one case, think of the model as a "demon." (I nearly forced my morning tea through my nostrils laughing at that comment!!)

Yes, it takes all kinds.

Some technical info for those who asked: Image was shot with a single 3x4 foot soft box positioned over the model's head, feathered slightly forward. Post processing included some skin smoothing, a boost in contrast, a bit of dodging to make the eyes reappear from under the shadow, and, of course, B&W conversion.

Thanks for the fave!  

Due to an arbitrary and unfair suspension for 30 days by some anonymous and cowardly administrator who won't respond, I no longer post on deviantART.  I refuse.  They took down all of my photo descriptions and models' credits - which have not been restored - and I'm not going to bother putting them back up.  They deleted many of my works even though they were not pornographic.  They even took down my biography.  This is the FOURTH time they've done all of this to me.  So I'm finished here.  This site is run by immature children only interested in anime and cosplay.  

But be sure to keep a watch on me here for future announcements about my book projects!  I will announce them here.  But I'm now only posting all of my new work over on tumblr:… So if you're interested in following my latest work and book projects, please go there and follow me.  Oh... and be sure to leaves "likes" and notes, too! 

This is me: 

tumblr:  (This is where I post all of my latest stuff.) 

deviantART:  (This is my largest - and most diverse - online portfolio) 

ModelMayhem: (3 ports there.  Just follow the links under my name.) 


My Bookstore: 

"LIPS"  (I'm currently working on Volume 2 of this.) 

... and something from my deep past: "The Face Of Hollywood"…

Thanks - and see you on tumblr!
