Hello Everyone,

Well...Sorry....It has been a long time since I posted or commented on anything. I have been working hard and the Good News;

I graduated from NKU with a BA in Criminal Justice and Minor in Photography.
I graduated with honors and a GPA of 3.204.

Or as it is said in KY;

Eyes Grade-you-ate-ed!!!

LOL...

Anyway, I have worked on several personal works while attending NKU and was pondering on doing more. But, wanted to get your comments on it.

I was striving to find the things which make a woman powerful and imply an object as a reflection of their power. Sounds simple but, was very hard for me because, I do not do nudes or implied nude anymore.

This is one image I used and was thinking about further work in this direction. I know this may not be the subject or imagary for glamour but, wanted your professional opinions.

****:

1/125 ss

Take care and be safe.
God be with you,
Tony

Congrats on your EDuKAYshun. I don't want to be nit-picky, but it looks to me that that is more the power of the sword than the power of the woman. When I think of the power of a woman, I think of muscular legs in high heels (low angle looking up)or perhaps a sweaty gal lifting weights (strong directional light). You might also consider "role" photos, such as a lady in non-traditional job situations. Examples: fireman (with hose or ax), Construction (with jack-hammer and hard hat), or something like that. I sort of gathered that you were looking for some ideas and I was just trying to offer some. Good luck. Arkie

congratz on graduating and your accomplishments grade-wise!

the power of women is something I think about a great deal. personally, i think a woman's true power comes from other things then, traditionally, where mens' power comes from. your image of a woman holding a sword takes a symbol of man's power--a weapon--and puts it in the hands of a woman. and while that can make for an interesting and entertaining image, i don't think it evokes the power that women wield.

in a nutshell, women are life-givers not life-takers. therein lies their power. life-givers do not brandish life-taking weapons, at least in terms of it being symbolic of their power. just my 2 cents.

You knew the portrayal of a woman's power comes through her eyes. It doesn't matter what kind of theme you place the woman in, it is going to be her expression of strength and power that will make the picture work.

Congratulations on the BA's.
