spontaneous pink by suzi9mm spontaneous pink by suzi9mm
i took this the other day in the toilet of the theatre Bad Dog in Toronto. i'd just been there (toilet) and was amazed by the pink color, after which i ran into this guy whom i loosely knew (well just from pictures i'd seen). we'd talk a few minutes and i then decided to grab the moment and asked him if he'd pose for me downstairs. he was up for it and and we went there and i didn't have to tell him what to do, i'd asked him to take his shirt off and go and lean into that corner but before i got to ask him anything else, he was posing and i just took the shots. i took 10 of them because the film was for other purposes and we were in a hurry.

because of the circumstances, i was shooting the shows at the theatre, the film is a fairly grainy 800 :( feel free to comment on that but it's too late to do anything about it.

it's something different from me in both style, the way i shot (spontaneously) and the medium i used (film after like 2 years of digital), so that makes it interesting for me. i hope you like it.

he's Max, and if it's up to me you'll be seeing more of him in the future :)

everythings girly in that room eccept for the dude! Everyone poses in front of the mirror at least once in their lives, it's fun to make weird faces too! Awesome photograph!

It's probably getting redundant but I love the colours in this! And the model isn't that hard on the eyes either.

Great photo!

I like how spontanious it is, gives it a more "real" feel. also the grain adds to that feeling, so no compaints there:) feels rushed in a good way

Very interesting and yes, totally not your normal style, but still breathtaking. The color in this is beautiful.
The piece as a whole is fantastic!! No, seriously. Loving this. It's refreshing in so many ways. :)

he reminds me of the guy from Dazed and Confused. Striking resemblance.

Excellent photo. Very naughty words lie between the lines, so to speak.

Low ASA is cool and all, but somtimes grain and grit is the best medicine. I really think it looks greatfor this one, its more real, more, spontaneous. There is a reason there are all these Holga fanatics out there. Grain; somtimes its in.

Love, Luck, and Lollypops,

is this a shot of the reflection in the mirror, cause if it is that really cool. I seem to really like shots of mirror portraits, especially self portraits. I think the graininess add to the spontanious nature of the shhot

this style reminds me a little of Depeche Mode - In This Room video :-) which is a positive impression.

Great spontaneous shot indeed :nod: Intersting model, pose and location :D
The lamp in the roof bugs me though...maybe cropping out would help... Just my humble opinion though ;)
suzi9mm Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2004   Photographer
your humble opinion is appreciated :)

I'm just honored to give it.
Keep up the amazing work :worhship: It's greatly appreciated and very inspirational :nod:

Great shot, and I kinda like the grain. Some photos wouldn't be as good if they didn't have grain - it can really lend a certain mood to a photo. The model is great too, the looking away is great for this shot.

The only thing I may have done is cropped out the bathroom 'accessories' out of the shot. Although I go back and forth on the ethics of cropping. I think if more of the bathroom things were in the shot and it established that you were in a bathroom right away, I would say keep them, but right now I think it sorta takes a second to look at the photo and realize that it's a bathroom. I'm probably just a weirdo about these things though.

He's max... and he's very cute! I like how the photo isn't centered, it makes you see all the more pink and draws your eyes to the model. :nod: but... why were you amazed that the washroom was pink?
suzi9mm Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2004   Photographer
weeeell, i guess round where i come from, washrooms aren't all that pink :shrug:

haha, Canada's a crazy place. Actually I get what you're saying. When I was in Germany, there was green paper towel. We had a fit, my friend video taped it and we all took some home with us!

Wow that is really pink! The shot came out great though. The contrasts of colors and the film grain gives it a nice feel. Very cool. :)

unknownsoldier Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2004
thats awesome that you just found that there...some of the best things in art are found spontaneously, or done on accident

the clacking coconuts in monty python and the holy grail, for example, were done b/c their budget was so low, and one of them started clacking two coconut halves together. everyone else thought it was great, so they put it in the movie.

This is different for you. I definitly agree you need to use him in future works. If thats what he's like without being told then hes a natural.
