    Default Gothic arts

    hi all,
    i was wondering if anyone likes gothic arts. i mean not really damn gothic..but slight or moderate gothic arts
    i like portrait pics featuring gothic people ..like black eyes-liner and nail polish? think they are cool..but i guess not many singaporean are into that nor anyone would like..it's not common here i guess.

    Yeah, same sentiments here. I think they whole idea of black eye-shadow and spiky hair is very interesting, in that it is just as much a form of self-identity as would be the idea of imitating your favourite J-Pop icon, TCS star, et al.

    And besides, I think, given the rarity of such uniqueness, the whole goth scene would pose quite THE photo opportunity, no?

    POF

    yea i guess so too. well, it depends on the subject and how you want the picture to be or at least to show what you meant thru the picture.
    hmm J-POP? not really..J-POP isn't that goth compared to typical UK punks and goth. or US? because japanese people(that are stars) are kind of like pretty boys and girls..to me, they won't bring out the feeling of goth as much but maybe the prettyness only. hehe~ gothic arts need somone very characterable to portrait the feeling out.

    yeah we'd do that.. Can exchange ideas.. Will be great!

    Found a few like minded ppl here.. I'd get us all together to do tis.. Would prefer a few photographers.. Not too many.. We all need to agree on the theme and feel of it.. Otherwise will be wasting everyones time and effort..

    For a start, Id be doin the urban theme first.. Let me noe when u'd be free

    I generally try to shoot in what I consider to be a gothic style...there are some on my website (under somber)

    Here's a shot from a photo shoot I did: http://www.theblight.net/nlt/mel01.jpg


    here's a shot of me and my girlfriend at a Rocky Horror show -- http://www.theblight.net/nlt/IMG_0665.jpg (ps: I dress like that normally, anyway. pps: true photog, camera's in right hand )

    I've got tons more, but they're not online...
