….here the series of pictures I took with Coraline last week in Brussels. We had a little discussion recently on facebook about voyeurism and photography, which made me want to do a shoot with a more voyeuristic approach …as I understand it… with a focus on body parts, more “sexually charged”, more provocative…. I hope you like it – merry xmas! 🙂

Contax 645 with Tri-x and Portra 400 and 800
Nikon FM3A with Tri-x

….all exposed at ISO800 (roughly)

    Jan, nicht mein Metier, aber deine bisher beste Arbeit. Finde ich.

  2. 25. December 2011 / 14:07

    This post of you made my day! 🙂

    Very good

    I think it’s a good work but in my opinion grain is too rough. I prefer your previous shots. Anyway I don’t mean I do not like this one, but maybe it’s because I’m still impressed by the las two ones. Thank you sharing!

    terrific. absolutely terrific.

    I like this approach very much. The grain is fine by me, the shallow depth of field combined with the available light brings a lot of sensuality. A few pictures are a bit to much for my taste, but a nice approach and great development in your work. Merry Christmas Jan!

    Number 23 is brilliant, and I love what you did with the colors of the curtains and bedspread. Coraline is gorgeous as well, and I love the accentuated grain. Superb set of images I’ll gladly accept as a Christmas gift.

    Very nice series, the 23 being the best of all to my point of view. This model having a wonderful breast and since you’re focusing on body parts, it’s the best, with a nice BW, very good framing and a very delicate movement.

    Thank you Jan for this fantastic Christmas gift! Andrea

    I have followed all your work and haven’t found one that i didn’t like. Your work is just amazing and inspiring.

    Wow!! all of your posts are amazing and I love that you’re exploring different sides of femininity while keeping it very classy and tasteful. I’m also loving your technical information that you provide with your different formats!! I’m learning so much from viewing the differences between the formats, the film stocks and your way of approaching the subject. So I’ve noticed that you have used 400h film in the past and now sticking exclusively with portra. Can you tell me your opinions on the two different film stocks in terms of latitude, dynamic range and color rendition? Thank you so much!! Merry Christmas, I look forward to your awesome photography for inspiration every day : )

    Great work. And you made almost exactly what you talked about before the shoot. A fan!

  15. 28. December 2011 / 13:28

    Nice set but a bit different! Merry Christmas Jan 🙂

    I really like this set. Different for you, yes, but in a good way 🙂
    Some of the outfits, the colour and mood make it look and feel like shots from the 70’s. Excellent.
    Did you push process the Portra 400 that you rated at 800? Thanks.

    Wonderful. This serie is very interesting and conveys a nearly touchable atmosphere. Do you sell prints ?

    Absolutely wonderful. This is one my favourite sets of yours. What developer do you normally use/did you use here? Was it Rodinal?

    Great work!!
    Your photos are pure art!

    Wenn du dein Blog lange nicht mit aktuellen Aufnahmen füllst, muss man ja wieder ein wenig schmökern und findet auch weiterhin immer wieder Perlen 🙂
    Manchmal denke ich, dass du die erotische Fotografie neu erfindest und sehe Bilder, die ich so noch nie gesehen und erlebt habe.

    Immer wieder aufs Neue begeistert !!!
    Ganz starke Serie !!
