Toxic Dolls Alt Modeling Website

A new and improved alt, and traditional, modeling and photography community with social features and more. Born out of a site called Twisted Angels founded in 2009.

 

To put it frankly – harsh shadows in photos suck. But, sometimes when the sun is strong or the lighting inside is hard to work around, there are a few things you can do to combat the horrid shadow.

My e-book Pesky Shadows, Pretty Shadows can be of some help but here’s one little tip that can make a huge difference and doesn’t take any technical skill or special tools.

Potion the subject as far away from any walls as you can. The more distance between the person or object and a wall, the less strong the shadow that shows up on it will be. Give it a try like the shots below. It’s easy and work too.

Over the last few decades, I have been published in a few literary magazines and in newspapers and for my writing. However, it wasn’t until recently (November 2015) that I had the chance to be published in a magazine for my photography efforts.

Since then, I’ve added two more publications to my resume of model work and I would like to share them.

Thanks to Juliann C, the model I have shot with for each of these three fantastic magazines. You can check out her official website at www.julianncmodeling.com.

Saying that you support our troops is one thing, creating a gigantic flag out of toy soldiers to show it is an entirely different thing. That is just what a young man names Jacob did.

Here are some of the results as posted on a family Facebook site.

Most people out there have been powerfully impacted in some way or another by some work of literature or a book of some type. This is not a new idea and not all that shocking of an idea. However, in recent times, the medical community has come to view books as a great tool in treating those of us with some sort of mental health issue.  In the UK,  there are now works specifically deigned for teens (13-18) to help them with things like anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self-harm, and difficult life pressures, such as bullying and exams.

Learn more about these now.

It has been said that one of the primary goals of art is to make people think and feel. And, while some art simply exists and does not really evoke any great things, some does just that. This is often the case with any form of art that may in some circles or ways be considered controversial. So, it is no doubt that it is a common reaction to the nude human form.

Perhaps it is a painting, or a drawing or even photography or a video, but for many people the nude human body brings about some from of reaction, whether it be positive or negative.

For me, it is a matter of how the work is designed that matters. In essence, the body naturally lends itself to art as that it is beautiful in all shapes, sizes and colors. The curves and the ways light rolls off of the skin is outstanding in and of itself. And, if done right, there is nothing inappropriate about it.
