Jim .. lovely architecture pics.  One question ... how on earth did you get all of the lights on for the images of the housing development by the lake?  I presume you did it before any were occupied and had 2 or 3 people in the buildings making sure they were all on.

Those buildings are actually a large technology complex and in use after dark, so I was fortunate that they were working late!  Jim

The red car is the latest SRT8 Viper, recently brought back by Chrysler.  The vintage vehicle is a concept from Harley Earl (GM), the 1951 LeSabre.  When I shot the GM Design Staff building they were kind enough to bring it in for the project, I thought it was pretty spectacular and asked to have it shipped to my studio for a couple of days.  The lighting of it was accomplished with tungsten lights bounced off large muslin flats with a little direct light added.  Jim

Thanks Jim, it's  nice to know these things! I sure envy you your access even to see these amazing vehicles. Had he been British, I'm sure Mr Earl would have had a knighthood at the very least for his special contribution to automobile design over those golden years. But I don't know - you now have to be an athelete or some sort of singer to be recognized...

Regarding the comment about girls in the soup: nothing dodgy there, just an allusion to a play called There's a Girl in my Soup that ran in London for many years. Your daughter is very photogenic - congratulations!

Don't bank on it: probably just dilute beta-blocker and acetylsalicylic acid. I'm sure there's nothing else left. Which could explain a lot.

Okay, speaking of cats and pigeons: painted, mixed types; shot digital. Seriously for sale, as they say about yachts.

Rob, I love that stuff. Are you familiar with the work of Klaus Lange?

Careful guys, that's my daughter, Jessica.

What a lucky and gifted man you are. I felt it, there is something special in that image. The relation between photographer and model is so important.

Best,
Johannes

Hi Scott,

No, I only have any deep(ish) knowledge about older guys in fashion photography and the likes. I just clicked on the site you linked - haven't looked at anything yet but will, and I laughed out loud to myself: boat's hulls!

http://www.roma57.com/cellpix.html

That's all from my 'phone, and not at all pro. I often wish that I hadn't used it, and hadn't been so lazy as not to carry a camera every day... lost opportunities. Anyway, the link has lots of 'found' snaps in the genre. Hope you enjoy.

However. I must declare: I became interested in that 'style' from looking at some of Keith Laban's work, which I never managed to equal, and also at gooseloft.com.

Anyway, this 'blue' one enclosed is legitimate, found material shot on the D700. I await the offers from MOMA.

Klaus is an interesting guy. He's a chef aboard a pilot boat working out of the San Francisco bay (one of only a handful of ports that still use pilot boats). When they pull alongside an ocean liner to transfer the pilot on/off, Klaus watches for these amazing bits of abstract art, steps out onto the deck, and fires away. He has a great eye!

I interviewed him back when I was a stringer for local rags:

They deleted half of my quotation marks in the online edition, hopefully some of Klaus' unique expressiveness still shows.

Here's some architecture shot in the last year or so.  Both medium format and Canon.  Jim

Lovely work Jim.

Should not matter what tools one use as long as work is professional.

Me just getting back to work from holidays.

Regards to all posters.

Rob, thanks for the plug ;-)

When I started shooting the Found Paintings images some twenty years ago it was as though folk didnít know how to react to them. It took a while but they eventually became one of my best selling series, particularly corporate sales.

Iíve got to say itís been the greatest fun producing them and a really good excuse to travel the Mediterranean in search of the subjects.

Keith, those are fantastic! I love them!

I am drawn to similar abstract subject matter, and I love the interplay of rust with painted surfaces.

Hi,

I've seen the site now, and think the material is pretty much what's in my mind at times too. He's fortunate that he still finds rust: here, most everything is glass fibre or wood, and the only colours come from the dead paint itself and not from a richer mixture of materials going off. I caught one small boat like that recently, but it was taken off the hard and back out to sea, the owner hoping (I think) that it doesn't see spring. Like I said before, I wish I had the energy to carry a camera instead of just a cellphone!

Just in case I didn't explain earlier: the concept is to make a painting, photograph it, and then scrape it off the base material and paint another in its place. All you have to do is keep new ideas coming. That's all.

This way, the digital file is the only thing left, and digital prints are the new artwork.

Cool, or what? Well - something to do that doesn't eat up all the walls. Also uses up those batteries and the too heavy Gitzo.

This is a go at a taste of Joan Mirů; hope nobody feels insulted.

Thanks, Antonio!

Rob:  That's a porn stash, I assume. Or possibly a really big backgammon set.
