The photoshoot - it's an illusion

Can't remember whether or not I've shown this before. It sums up for me the illusory nature of photography - the glamour isn't glamourous, it's hard work, it needs a lot of work after the event and it's always selective, and often things are not what they seem.

I used this image as a "key stone" within 10 images in a recent exhibit.

....and by the way; thanks to those who have kindly left some remarks on the recent posts. These are greatly appreciated.


  1. Yes, I've seen this one before.
    What were the others in the series like?

  2. Stuart this is an outstanding photo. I like a lot.
    So much more interesting and creative than the perfect final product you're likely to see in women's magazines!

  3. Hi Stuart! Hope you are having a great holiday season! Sorry for the absence, but work and concerns are keeping me away from Blogtrotter... Anyhow, enjoy my latest post at Tobago, and have a great season!
    Wish you all the best for 2014, hopefully better than 2013!
