Painting with light by marcinwuu Painting with light by marcinwuu
hmm. I find it interesting that so many (well, relatively many, compared to my other photos that is) people seem to like this photo. You see, it wasn't meant to be published - it's one of the kind of digital polaroids, snapshots I make during my sessions to check exposure and composition before taking the real photo with a real camera. Anyway, glad so many (relatively that is ;) ) of you took to it.

I think i might have an answer as to why this is your most popular photo. All your photos are magnificently prepared, well lit and greatly executed. This one has a lens distortion to it though. The poportions are enlarged towards to upper part of the image. Her forehead is slightly larger than it should be compared to her chin, and head overall is a bit bigger compared to her shoulders. This makes that photo a lot less 'photoreal' and a lot more painterly, coming closer to that idealised feel some painters are able to execute. I wonder if you would be able to replicate this effect in more of your future works.

Most of my photos are shot with the same or very close focal length, and in similar crop, so the distortion should be the same. But maybe. Who knows.

Hi Marcinwuu, i have used 5_by_marcinwuu-d7xrz7t as the base for a Painter 8 portrait. I tried to stay close but changed some colours. I will post it to my account. Let me know if you have any issue with me using your amazing photograph as a base. I am doing this for the joy of creating art with no commercial background.

Thanks 

Kai

in this photo we see the girl, OK good, artists paint a picture and describe their work, write the value of  work
your photo makes sense? Or it is just the photo for cash, without history and means

I think we're having a bit of a language barrier situation here, so let me try with a couple of leading questions, and see where this takes us, eh? Are you trying to say that art without narrative, created for its purely visual impact has no point? And more, that photography created for money is artistically worthless?

"And more, that photography created for money is artistically worthless?"
almost what I wanted to say, but not quite. Interest when the photographer loads the photo on website  and wrote a little story about the photo, the photo becomes more interesting...the photo appears the soul
Or there are photographers which uploads their pictures only for the money, and more views
the images without soul just for fun
that's what I wanted to say

...my English is very bad...

Well, this one is definietely for fun. As for the soul, yours have to be the strangest definition of soul in photo I've ever seen. Photo gets a soul if it has a description... well, it takes all kinds I gues...

Maybe because it's a more natural and relaxed expression. The model knows she doesn't have to pose too hard?
