I agree ... Bravo!
How do you get this beautiful skin tones with Fomapan? Is this a scan from print or scanned negative? Thanks. Roland.
what about a white nurse outfit? :)
Mondiani party event photographer
I believe the needle is only what YOU, the viewer, make of it. Beautiful image. cc
I love the this image. Great exposure and composition. She is sexy, mysterious and a bit frightning all at the same time. As far as the drug issue goes, I do not agree with the above poster. I think an image like this is more in a fantacy realm than in a reality one, maybe she is KGB looking to extract some truth perhaps. Maybe a dominatrix nurse. The point being is that not every image has to have a message or agenda. BRAVO and Well Done!
Maybe she is an erectile dysfunction specialist! Up to your usual high standard Igor.
Marco Bolding is a liar... I'm the guy who have a secret! :)))
It reminds me a little bit of my grade school nurse.
I have a different angle on the responsibility issue - the needle doesnt have to contain controlled substances. For me, someone who has been taking 3 injections per week of perscribed medications for over two years and will have to for the rest of my life, I just may think of the whole task in a different light :)
Porn addict? That was the first thing that came 2 mind. The needle symbolizing the addiction and the sexy girl, well the pr0n. Any1 with me?
Not drugs, only B-12. :-)). I scanned negative. Thanx.
"A spoonful of sugar, makes the medicine go down" Gosh I miss Julie Andrews, but I never miss a shot by Igor. Thanks for this post.
Waddya mean? The girl is nice.... exposure, etc. is all right..BUT what ?s the message? Is it a commercial for drugs? As a photographer you have to show a bit of responsibilty... which you dont?t in this picture.
I agree - you do have a weighty responsibility as a photographer - to please yourself, and whomever else might see things the same way. As for everyone else... well, that's what eyelids are for. Great image, if for no other reason than that it generates questions.
Cool! This hits on most of my emotions! Thanks
I think this is the nurse of my fantasies coming to give me my shot of vitamin B-12. Excellent photography! ;-)
Much too sadistic an image. I agree with the responsibility issue. The truth is every image does give an impression ~ or as I like to say, a message. Perhaps w/o the hyperdermic, studded collar and the (hairs) unnatural blunt cut. The woman actually has very intriguing features.
I don't like it as much as your other pictures, maybe because she's clothed. For one thing the face/expression doesn't really say "fetish" to me.. Also, she's holding the syringe awkwardly, without much confidence. Last thing I don't like so much is the overall angle. As usual, very nice tones and contrast.
OMG! she seems to be saying Ben Dover!!!!!!!
I disagree with the whole "responsibility" thing as well. Some fetish? Indeed! I instantly saw this photo as a fetish/fantasy/fashion image, BEFORE I saw Igor's comment. Art would be trite and meaningless if it were all "safe" and "responsible" ( what is responsible being in the eye of the beholder mind you-as we all have different values and opinions)I would loathe to be in a world full of art that played it safe. Nicely done!
great shot I like this a lot. this image raises questions and thoughts. If you name it "Addiction" instead of "Vaccination" it'll be a killer ;)
Probably my favourite out of the series so far. All nurses should look like this. Just a great image all round. :)
Dear Igor I agree with some other, this is one of the best photo in these series, I really enjoy the facial expression , and the outfit is in a great harmony with the whole photo feeling. Thx for sharing. Hojjat
Do not be afraid I will not hurt you
The classic fault for this type of photo: Nursey should be looking at tip of needle. If you want eye contact with the viewer, turn her, move her arms, or twist her body so shs'e looking over top of needle at viewer. Oh, what the hell, hurt me hurt me.
For Doug Hawks
Doug - Is that why you got left back so many times? Can't blame you.
