Is That a Foot Fetish I See In My Photo Library?

2012-05-04 5

I recently noticed something odd with my pictures, it seems that i developed a little something for…feet!

I recently entered a rumble on Lomography about cross-overs and I ended up as one of the runners-up! I was really happy about it and proudly showd it to a friend. C’mon, it was my first ‘something’ after all. He was happy for me, congratulated me and everything, but he told me that “Yes, gret! But you took a picture of feet!”. At first I was “No, what are you saying? It’s about doubles, not feet!”, but a bit later that day, I decided to put some order in my previous un-tagged pictures and realized something weird. It’s strange how I love pigeons and skyscrapers, and cat, but also…. FEET!

I swear to god I don’t have a foot fetish or anything, but I just think it’s a good subject – visually speaking. It’s also a good way to capture a person. Like the old saying goes “Show me your shoes and I will tell you who you are.” (Okay, maybe I just made that up). Mine, a stranger’s, barefoot, sneakers, boots, in action or not, sandals, high heels, colors, black and white – you name it, I love it! Did I already mention that I don’t have a foot fetish?

What about you? It’s something that I see on a regular basis. Do you also take pictures of feet, or should I start to worry about my visual/mental sanity?

    Yes. You have a foot fetish.
    At least you are not obsessed with seagulls, every time I see one I have to snap a photo - even though they are all out of focus :D Love your feet photos and you are right, it perfectly captures someone's character :D

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    A Salute to the Masters: Ice Skating (A Tribute to Monte Fresco)

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
