Fashion lite, I like that. Yes, very very lite, with zero %.

The thing is that celeb is easy and fast money, quick to set, zero creativity, except the cases you mentionned. And ironically, photographers feel that they become "someone" when they do celeb because they are part of the pathetic show...well, it's like an interviewer who would think is part of the Rolling Stones because he interviews them. But from a celeb point of view, in 99% of the cases, they are servants. They are some truth colaborations but are numbered.

Watch that: http://www.vogue.es/videos/mario-testino-y-vogue-espana/1707
With this lite music, lite comments it just kills the fish. And I haven't find some real footage of the celeb party: baroque, gayish, snobish lite lite lite...ridiculously corny; watch specialy the end, MT negligible is telling all; the photos were good, but that's what's arround that stinks.


Gayish, snobish?.... do you have a problem with gays..... sounds like we have a homophobe on the forum... great Roll Eyes

What is your problem. To me it seems to be a nice production wrap party.
I watched the video and just saw a lot of enthusiasm and happy people.
Mario is a very amicable person and takes beautiful images of his subjects.
He doesn't have even the slightest snobbish attitude and everyone I know who has shot with him
seem to speak about him with a sort of affection.
I particularly like how he doesn't take himself too seriously.
He's soft spoken and open minded with a sense of the times.
I think what you are missing here is that these are all people that work hard
and know how to unwind.
Some brilliant people at the party...
Rossy de Palma... brilliant actress

http://youtu.be/I8h_bSf9PVY

Loles León... another brilliant actress... extrordinary in MUJERES AL BORDE DE UN ATAQUE DE NERVIOS

Bebe  one of my favorite singers

http://youtu.be/n79LFcX19Gw

She wrote Malo an amaizing song about violence against women

http://youtu.be/01d0UhR75CI


Here is a little something....a though on covers

Fashion is the objectification of women and men. Wear this and be beautiful. And if you are beautiful you will be loved and admired. Isn't that the messaging? Isn't it built on taking little girls and making them women--how perverse is that? Girls that end up staving themselves because of a twisted body image. Now, if you want to work in fashion and make a living from it, that is great. There has been a lot of advertising images I have enjoyed. But it is hardly some benign, innocent industry interesting in beauty and art.


I really find this ridiculous. The fashion business is not built on taking little girls
and turning them into women.

let me tell you a story about taking a little girl and "making her a woman".
I photographed a pretty young girl that had a debilitating handycap. I was asked to photograph her by one of her doctors.
She had brain damage and severe motory problems. She would move in a very shaky and un co-ordinated manner.
The photos came out rally well and gave her a massive boost in confidence. Her doctors said the effect was a dramatic improvement.
The confidence she gained made it much easier to control her movement and her shaking.
The best part of the story is that I showed this image to Vogue Spain and they loved it and ran it as the cover of their beauty section.
You can only imagine how this lovely little girl felt when I showed her the magazine in the news stand on the streets of Milan.
I still get cards from her and her family 20 years later.

The Fashion business like many other is made up of a very diverse group of people. There are all types, there is a lot of good will and heaps of generosity.

Absolutly. Cyclic.

MT was a great photographer, but now, from the top, the game escapes from his control and he is starting to sink into a caricature of itself, and it's even sad to see him ridiculous like in the link I posted.
Same happened to KL. From the top, he sunk into decadence and now barely a caricature of what he used to be.
The night, the fame, you know all those photocall BS are just eating people.

The few who have been enough clever to stay away from parties and didn't want to be part of the celebs festin when they were on the top are still making great stuff.
Sunk into decadence? For having a bit of fun and being confident enough to not take himself too seriously.

So it seems we have a puritan on the forum....

For other reading here take a look at Mario's philanthropy and support of artists

No dark side to the fashion industry?

So, this is the point. You come here not knowing how the camera manufacturing business works and make up all kinds of rubbish. Well, it is a cheap shot. Just like me painting an extreme image of the fashion industry. I get tired of the BS about the industry I worked in. Just as much as you probably don't like the brush I am painting your industry with. The camera business is full of talented dedicated professional, just like your industry. And I have no doubt of your talent and ability. Stick to what you know.

After 30 years in professional photography I know a thing or two about cameras I have used and what it's like buying them.
I'm the first to say that the camera industry if full of amazing engineers and produce gear that empower photographers.
Talking about Minolta.... The Minolta Color Meter was one of my essential tools as a photographer shooting all over Europe in different rental studios Checking the lights for color balance
was really important. I've sent flash head back to the rental room many a time.

I've also bought cameras on and off for 30 years. One learns a thing or two about the marketing.
In some cases it's blatent missinformation. MFD digital just seems to put out more of it.
One doesn't even have to be an expert for god's sake. Just look at the USB thing. Phase and Mamiyaleaf have had claims of USB3
on their websites scince the backs were launched. Only a few days ago beta software was made available.
NOWHERE on their two websites did it say it did not work yet. That is bullshit and theirs plenty more.

Anyway I think it's not worth spending anymore time arguing with a homophobic puritan.

Yes you are right I did use harsh language and I stand behind what I said. I will not stand by
and do nothing when I see bigotry. Denigrating someone for his sexual orientation whatever that may be
is unacceptable to me and a response using harsh language is the least I can do.

Do you not find it harsh that he denigrates Mario Testino for being gayish, calling him decadent for
enjoying himself at a party.

I wonder if theguywitha645D even understands Spanish and listened to the video he posted the link to.

I still come out in a cold sweat when I think back to shooting for 3 months in a car studio and having to deal with serious noise issues with flexcolour for Hblad/imacon (the scanning software that was made to work as capture software) we were emailing the factory pleading for the software updates, this is exactly the kind of attitude Fred is on about, get the product out there worry about it later.
It's like the new and improved long exposure backs, the elephant in the room is the dark frame of the same duration, but let's not talk about that.
I don't drink anyone's cool-aid if it's got a whif of bullshit about it.

 Grin a lot of vociferous words here. In a way, I can understand them.

Personaly, I don't feel absolutly attacked nor concern by  homophobic puritan. I think Fred readed selectively what he wanted.

My best friend is gay, 2 of my very good friends are gays, I've been working many times with gays, I'm actually invited to their homes and parties
and always had great respect, and received the same respect from them.
I am one of the very few men that is allowed and welcome to enter in a private lesbian bar here, and I've been helping many times some gay or lesbian
in their carreer acheivement or personal problems and also received help from them.

Actually, you might know a Little less than I do the gay world. If you knew it, you'd know that "gayish" is a term they actually use themselves as "falling into" when
they tend to fall-or been trapped into a certain kind of parade. Themselves, use frequently those expressions for describing certain type of things.
A gay person would have actually smelled perfectly what was the real meaning of my thoughts in the context I was describing.
As puritan, I won't talk about my private life here, but...well...if I'd say to people who know me: "hey, this guy told me I'm puritan", I think everybody would fall laughin in tears.
But that's not the point, as I said, I don't felt concerned by those attacks, it's like Fred was talking about someone else, so no objection,
no problem, nothing wrong. Fred doesn't know me personaly and couldn't know from where I was using certain words and why.
I can understand why such a visceral reaction from him (or someone else). Then, If someone responds with agressivity or harshness, (whatever the subject is, whatever the person is, it's the person's concern).

Fred used the lenguaje he feels like to, according to what he understood or wanted to understand of my post. Actually the points that Fred was making on my "evil" post were not the ones I was trying to explain. Nothing to do with Testino talents and merits. Nothing to do with hard work. Nothing to do with people having fun and having good time, nothing to do with MT recognition and sweetness others feels with him, nothing to do with the quality of his pictures etc etc...none of the points Fred mentionned had something to do with what I was talking about. But I won't re-write differently in order to precise better my points and try to be understood. That would be loosing time and turning arround concepts that have nothing to do with the thread.
As I don't write in my native lenguaje, well, that's what is and it's always a risk to be misinterpretated. (if I see that even between same native lenguaje posters misinterpretations are legions...so)

Everything's perfectly fine for me. No offense felt. Not concerned.

Precisions made and time to move on.

Cheers.

 

Who do you think you are fooling trying to wiggle your way out of this one.

What you said was very clear...

Quote
baroque, gayish, snobish lite lite lite...ridiculously corny; watch specialy the end, MT negligible is telling all; the photos were good, but that's what's arround that stinks.

You denigrate Mario Testino as gayish, snobish.. rediculously corny and in the same sentence say it STINKS.

You go on to call it decadent.... and this is the video you were talking about...

http://www.vogue.es/videos/mario-testino-y-vogue-espana/1707

If you could actually understand what was talked about in the video you might have caught
that it was a wrap party of the issue of Vogue Spain that he shot, but not only
was he the photographer but he was the guest director of the issue.
That is what I call being on top of the game. World class photographer and invited to direct an issue of Vogue.

You call this party decadent, say gayish stinks and then want us to believe you are some sort
of career advisor for gays and the darling of a private lesbian bar.

Who do you think you are kidding. It's typical for idiots that let their real bigotry show
to try to cover it up like you are.

To FredBGG

And go on and on and on....like the Little nervous dog that doesn't want to release the toy

I wrote time to move-on, been more tan educated with you, now being treated as an idiot, inventing some sort of carreer advisor for gays or lesbians that you just interpretated from my words,
just inventing, interpretating, Reading what you want and more importantly, thinking that you know and that you are important.

Let me tell you mister Fred what I think of you before I wisedly disable in this forum your sickening and agressive posts.

You is just ego. And you have a huge problem with your ego and should consult a guru or a psy. There is a lot of work to do here.

Constantly critisizing and judging people, constantly attacking MF users, being harsh when you read something that is not according to your beleif,
allowing you to litterally insult when nobody insulted you.

Giving constant lessons in this forum from some sort of knowledge that makes you beleive you are on the top.

The thing is that you'd like to be at the top, but you're not.
But, mister Fred, if you really were at the top, 1) you wouldn't have time to post all those crapperies on MF that we read all the time
2) you would not even feel the need to talk about those things nor being rude to anybody

You are insecure, you have a completly immoderate ego, and you feel superior.

In short: poor person indeed.

From now on, I won't have the privilege to read your stupid posts so no need to answer, don't loose more time on that.

fredjeang2, I think this response says more about YOU than it does about me.

While you choose to denigrate celebrities and the successful (I'm refering to Testino) saying they are lite lite lite, decadent, gayish, corny bla bla bla
make fun of how they dance.. bla bla...

In reality though this is the sort of thing they do and often do so before much of society follows.

8 frame rectilinear stitch, but the quality is quite amazing.
Ground glass for composition and live view for fine focus.
rectilinear frames are very easy to stitch.
Significantly higher quality than 40 and 60 mp sensors.



They are also making more compact two frame stitch options for D800 etc.

I have a few Fotodiox adapters and they are nicely built. It this camera has a similar built it should be really quite nice.
