Truly gorgeous louche porn!

I've said more than a few times that absinthe was distilled beauty in a bottle and you've captured some of that.

Thanks, JP and Wild Bill.

Where do words like "tilt" and "shift" come in?
Those are terms for different view camera movements (among others) that affect the plane of focus. You can narrow it down or expand it in different directions. Large amounts of tilt will give you that miniature model look.

Exactly. It was first used to make accurate shots of the tops of tall buildings WITHOUT distortion, but used in reverse, you get that model platform effect when shot from above. A helicopter would be the best way.

Beautiful stuff, Moschops. They remind me of photos in deep space, of nebulae and such, or of ectoplasm. Absinthe already lends itself to photography more so than any other drink, I think (maybe beer is a close second, with the variety of colors and foam, and "Belgian lace" on the sides of a glass) but this brings the contemplation of the louche to an entirely new and intense level. I trust you're familiar with Ansel Adams - do you ever use his zone system with your large film formats?

Thanks, Baron and Artemis. I appreciate it.

Artemis, yes, what first got me to point a lens at my cordon was the similarity to forms seen in deep space photographs. I have spent many years as an astrophotographer so it became a good substitute on cloudy nights to photograph the inner space of my glass.

I have not, as of now, employed the zone system. I'm more of a just-wing-it photographer. I don't think I'd be invited into Group F/64.

Any member of that group would have been impressed by those black and white louche pictures, I'm sure.

I used to love my 35 mm camera and my Kodachrome 25, but I liked black and white even better and fooled around in the darkroom quite a bit. When I first saw Ansel's picture of that graveyard under the moon I was stunned - the black velvet, the white tombstones glowing - so I studied that zone system, but never tried to use it. I'm not sure it lends itself to a dinky format anyway - Ansel used to lug that 8 X 10 up mountains and such ...

I haven't seen a good example of the graveyard picture on the Internet (it has to be BIG to appreciate the details), but for those who might be interested, here it is, along with the rest of the story: http://www.anseladams.com/content/ansel_in..._ancedotes.html

Yup, but no matter which one I look at, I think of the same thing: I'm thirsty.

Artemis, there was an show of prints made by A.A. that came through here a few years back and I remember staring at 'Moon Over Hernandez' for quite a while. Among his many photographic talents, like being a human exposure meter, his printing may have been his strongest.

First and foremost, amazing pics.

Second, I like to play around in Photoshop sometimes and the two pics looking down on the glasses as they louche would make great irises for a green fairy piece. I hope you don't mind if I use them in a purely recreational, non-commercial way.

Thanks, kindly.

Phoenix, I don't mind. Thanks for asking.
