Revisiting Film On Flesh

Since the original Silent Porn Star was published with a version of Blogger/Blogspot which is no longer supported by Google, comments left in what I now call the archives are not able to be published. But I do get emails about the comments and when they are worthy, I like to share them with you. Today, Greg (presumably Greg Glover, based on the link) left the following comment on 2008’s Film On Flesh post:

Yes, the photographs lose something. The problem is, if you’re going to have stills, you should photograph for the purpose of stills. Don’t expect a documentation from a dance performance to work on its own — it’s like videotaping fireworks. Most of these “Living Canvas” photos are kind of flat, and could easily be imitated in Photoshop with overlays. You need to take advantage of the distortions and curvature of body surfaces to make it interesting. There’s *ahem* better stuff out there. www.nakedinthelight.ca (Yes, I’m biased.)

Greg and his partner Joanne Thomson also allow you to studio sessions, creating a more retro flashback version of boudoir photography. Here’s an example of Greg’s work.
