No name yet by II-calm-II No name yet by II-calm-II
My friend, smoking. kinda freeky shot. sorry for the quality, it's not always easy to hold camera still with 1 sec. shutter speed...


Any ideas on the name for this one? (As soon as it's a DD i will finally pick a name for it)


It was after studies. we were standing on a busstop, waiting for a bus.... it wasn't windy and it was very dark. I had a good mood for some reason, and i was smoking the sigarette. Then suddenly i hade a "strike"

I gave my cigarette to him and asked him to tint his head a little....

"snap!!!" - and here we have!




cam:

Body: maxxum 7000
Lens: minolta af 28-80 4.5-5.6 @ 28
Film: Kodak profoto BW 400
Model: My good friend - Alexander.

Beyond the grain and noise i feel No name yet by ~II-calm-II has an great noir feeling to it. From a photo where you cannot see the subject's eyes you get so much feeling from it. This deviant's gallery is pretty cool too! Just put him on my devwatch. ( Featured by cweeks )

I like the name it has...
makes it sort of creepy, like he is about to get a name, like something is about to happen. as he exhales the last of his cigarette and tosses it aside and gets down to business...
nice shot too, the quality adds to the effect

I quite like "No name yet" as the title
He seems like an anonymous character.

This is interesting, but I can't really place why I think so.... Maybe it's the composition. In any case, it's a very thought-provoking piece to me! :)

I see keep the title name you have, in fact the name is what made me look at it. I think No name yet adds to the picture makes it more mysterious.

This is one of my fav photo's ever.
For real.
I love the color/cropping/subject matter/lighting..
It's phenomenal :love:

This was my comment on the drawing of this photo:
“I ADORE the actual photo (I have it on my stumble blog, and a really nice fellow stumbler pointed me to your Deviant page to give thanks )”
Wasn’t paying attention, hehe... :oops:
Thought the photo and drawing was by the same artist.. my bad ;)
Anyhoo.. just wanted to let you know.

I like how you deliberately broke the rule of thirds yet this piece still works! very unconventional. The slight blurriness and graininess add to the piece in my opinion since it looks like a still from an old film noir. Title suggestion? How about "the informant".
