Hello... is there any body in there...

... just nod if you can see this... is there anyone home?

Just curious if anyone still reads Livejournal or not. I'm still getting the occasional hit from here to my photoblog at DreamlandVisions.com so I thought I'd do a shout out to see who's here.

I miss the long, oftentimes contentious, but always fun and informative debates and discussions that used to happen here. Facebook's enforced focus on shallow trivia and bullshit memes saddens me and makes me long for the days of fidonet, Compuserve and usenet.

So speak up if you're still here.

Posts to my photoblog.

It appears the cross-post plugin between my blog and livejournal is broken. I've posted several new photos from last week's shoot with Hardluck Joesephine and Mistress Fire. Go see them here: Dreamland Visions.

Once I can figure out what broke, you'll start seeing my photo posts here again.

An Experiment in Black and White.

I found myself in a creative mindset tonight and decided to experiment a bit with B&W images. I went back to a set of Jess & Swan Song from June and either did a new treatment of one of the shots I've already published or picked out new images from that set to play with. I think you'll like the results.

Here's a link to the full gallery: LINK

AFVE first meetup

Originally published at Dreamland Visions Photography. You can comment here or there.

Tonight’s AFVE Meetup was an huge success. Last count was somewhere around 25 people. The location (Cocktail Cove in Roswell) was even better than I hoped. Much awesomeness will ensue in the future.

But, what’s a review without pictures. This is what you missed if you weren’t there tonight:

The only cherry in the building and yeah, we smoked it!

July 4th Weekend @ Lady J’s

Originally published at Dreamland Visions Photography. You can comment here or there.

This last July 4th weekend was a very fun and productive weekend.  See a bunch of us got together and decided to celebrate 4th of July by exercising our 1st Amendment rights.   We also were testing and experimenting with formats for future group shoots (both photo and video) for the Atlanta Fetish Video Exchange shoots coming up.

Models for the weekend were Lady J, Lady Cobalt, Lady Cobalt’s stage-nameless-man.   Photogs were me, Lee, Gonzo, and JP.  Much fun was had by all and as you’ll see from the shots below, some really incredible art was produced.   Not bad for just messing around with sets and lights and models.   Oh, and the shots with the two Ladies in the shower together were done with 2 photogs and two videogs all squeezeing into the same bathroom.  As you can see, if everyone cooperates, even paparazzi photography can work.

Without further ado, the ladies:

And behind the cut is proof of what happens when you hand two lovely women a bottle of chocolate syrup or marshmellow cream then stick them in the shower.  Oh, and then how one of them prefers to get cleaned up.   (NSFW, but you knew that)

Google+

Originally published at Dreamland Visions Photography. You can comment here or there.

I have a Google+ account now.  Not too happy with the TOS with respect to my photography.  Handing Google rights to do anything with everything I post there for all time is not something I’m really all that comfortable with.   I am not even close to what you’d call an Intellectual Property zealot, but damnit, I do want some control over what happens to my works.  If you want to do something with it, ask.  Chances are, I’ll say yes.

I’ll post more about my fun with it in the future.  So far I do like the interface and it is not nearly as cluttered as Facebook.  Competition’s great.  Better products are even better.

Since this is a photography blog, here’s some eye candy for you!
