Here are a few more old photos from 2009. I regarded them as my best for quite some time, despite the low quality and very deep depth of field.

Breathed a bit of life into them with some re-edits (too red?).

hot tip for photographers: don't accidentally overwrite the metadata for every photo you've taken over the last three years.

As a some-time neighbour(?) to the Naked On the Internet community, I'd be interested in creating a lengthy survey for members of the community, including SWs and freelance models, to get a better idea of how they relate to their output and audience.

I have a policy that if you don't play the instrument, I won't take a picture of you holding it.

secretly, my favourite thing about this photo is her blonde eyebrows poking out of her makeup.

desolation wisp.

Good times with faces. Have you got one? You should check. I’ll wait. Did you touch the front of your head? Is that enough? Try a mirror. Can mirrors be trusted? Can eyes be trusted? What eyes? Have you got a face?

Here are some photos I took in spring of 2009, which I recently posted on my "ten years ago today" blog on ye old tumb-tumb.

Pretty surprised at how well they turned out, given that I was using a small canon point and shoot (a Powershot A570, I believe).

I had devoted myself more to taking photos regularly, after losing my job that January - didn't really pan out, though. Got the old job back, after all.

I'm not usually one to deviate from my usual program, but I'm making an exception for this Kickstarter.

Katie West, an internet friend and the person who first inspired my self portrait photography, wants to put together a book of essays about connecting online in the early 2000s. There are authors signed on from all over the world, and it's going to be amazing. Please consider checking it out! There are only 8 days left to back it. I want it to exist so badly!

but typically, when it is a coincidence, I can tell, and I like the photo, because I am hooked on this coloured light garbage.

I don't own coloured light, but I have a particular style, and when I see people who I know have seen my work doing the same thing, it's usually pretty obvious that it's no coincidence.

I've been doing this purple lighting thing for more than 5 years, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that people would try to emulate the style, given that my work got around on social media, once upon a time, but it still feels like i'm being ripped off when no one acknowledges the inspiration.

A portrait from the archives. Back when she was a "big deal" in the freelance model scene, nobody took much notice of cam damage's freckles. But you know me - or should.

reading this article on how metastasizing corporate social media suffocated community on the internet (in particular art communities like deviantart) artsy.net/article/artsy-editor makes me think that—like learning html and css—learning how to set up and administer and customize your own installation of forum/community software should be considered a basic part of internet literacy

some stars go out.

having a hard time, lately, with not being able to share the same version of my photos across all platforms. Depressing.

Anyone in or around Toronto? I'm getting antsy to take photos of nice faces.

I would like to take more photos of people with silver/grey hair. Also, I would like to take more photos of people. Know any?
