Sibling Portraiture... Tokyo Style?!
Posted By: codiac2600, 04-27-2008, 03:22 PM

My buddy Antoin, you should all know him very well by now, and his younger sister needed some shots done. Reason... Mothers Day!

I agreed and here are my picks for the top pics for their sweet and kind mother.

BTW, all shots are straight from camera converted to Jpeg.











Seeya!

As usual, these are just brilliant.
Lighting - second to none.
What more to say?
This will be a nice mother's day gift!

Nice portraiture Chris. These are excellent choices to send to their Mom. They are both very photogenic and are quite relaxed in front of the camera.

(It would be challenging for my sisters and I to be in the same room let alone the same picture! )

The last one would be my choice.

That is hillarious and should bring a smile to any mothers face.

Now that I understand the situation with your buds complexion the shots are awesome.

Thanks J and I'm not sure which they want, but they will let me know by tonight hopefully. They were a challenge themselves.

Thank you D and it's still noticeable without any adjustments now. Luckily for me he is doing all his own photoshop work so I won't have to deal with the hassle.

I like the Text Messaging shot, Great stuff. All are very good and It would be hard to choose. I like the 'peace symbol' shot as well. The most recent "Ying and Yang"?? is excellent as well.

As always the lighting is perfect. Very well done series Chris. The colour of the backdrop is great for their skin tones as well.

Lol, thanks Peter and I'm not sure it's Ying and Yang, but more of my brother is stupid and makes some dumb poses for us to do. Her expression in that shot gives it all away.

I fell in love with this new background paper, as it's not something you see everyday. I hope to use it more and more, but the color absorbs my gels so I may get bored of it.

I kept scrolling through the initial post, wondering where the "Tokyo Style" comes in. Then I got to the last one with the peace signs. I love it! They're all great portraits, but that one made me smile.

A note for anyone who might be wondering what "Tokyo Style" has to do with peace signs: In Japan it is practically impossible to take a photo of anyone without them reflexively flashing a peace sign. It's like a genetically programmed reaction to having a camera pointed at them. It is so common that not only are they not conscious of doing it, for the most part they are entirely oblivious to peace signs in photos. I remember a high school girl showing me a group photo taken of her senior trip to Kyoto. There were about 40 girls gathered in the standard group photo formation and together we counted something like 60 or 70 peace signs. The foreigners who saw the picture had a reaction like, "Jesus!!!! Look at all the peace signs!!!!".....to which all the Japanese present had a reaction like, "What the hell are you talking about?"

I know what you meant by Tokyo style. It is just that Japanese has a totally different type of perceptions to the things surrounding them.

The pose in the last couple of shots do indicate the type of movements that could invoke plenty of laughter and resonance in the audience in certain type of talk show or comedy.

Looks fun and creative. Chris, you have been thinking hard!
