thanks a lot for the replies. i looked at/up each of the photographers you guys mentioned and found them all pretty interesting in their own way. i'll bookmark this thread so i can look at their stuff later
Hey, you're into photography as well?
i'm into photography now haha. i'm taking a photography class and i wanted to see the stuff that like-minded people enjoyed so i could keep whatever elements in mind when i work on my own stuff
one of the future assignments is to emulate a favorite photographer. i thought it was a cool project until i realized i don't really have any favorites. Cindy Sherman's pretty cool, and kinda similar to Sherman is some chick named Mariko Mori. she does a lot of weird stuff but i haven't been able to find any high res pictures of her work online. i also liked Guenter Schulz's stuff, but his site fell apart and now i can barely find any of his images
Evenor mentioned Erwin Olaf, and i really loved one idea that Olaf did with his series of Chessmen. it reminded me of American McGee and other artists, and what they've done with existing stories. i thought it'd be cool to do something like that, presenting my own version of something. i was thinking of recreating the Final Fantasy or Nippon-Ichi classes in my own eyes. something like that
if anyone has anything else to add, or any other photographers to name, then i'd still love to hear it
anyways! Kilvear, i found your deviantart site by clicking on random things in that link you posted. what do you have to say about all this! (i know that's a pretty vague statement, but still, i think anything you have to say would help me.) do you have any influences? i really loved the things you've done. cool perspective and excellent lighting. i'm guessing photography is just a hobby and not something you do professionally? i think you really have an eye for these kinds of things

you guys all have your lists of favorite artists, so i was wondering, do any of you have any favorite photographers?
i'm fairly new when it comes to this area, so i'd like to be exposed to some of your favorites to help me grasp it a bit better. i know a couple artists/painters/whatever also work with photography, so i think it'd be interesting to see some well-known names (ie. Amano, Ryoji, Falcoon) in photography if any of you can name any
Well there is an unlimited number of photographers' samples you can see to be exposed to good stuff.As far as classics are concerned i like very much Eugene Atget(a french guy at the late 19th century).His work became famous when someone who worked for Man Ray(surrealist painter-innovative photographer) saw his work.
Some favs of mine contemporary and old: Nobuyoshi Araki, Marketa Luskacova, Dorothea Lange, Andre Kertesz, Eikoh Hosoe, Miwa Yanagi, Shoji Ueda, Nan Goldin, Ed Van der Elsken, Robert Doisneau, Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, Gjon Mili,Herb Ritts..these came to mind.Well i suggest buying magazines whatever and just looking up names.
You can always see my pics too of course :

haha that's a long list of people, but i'll gradually go through them all. i'm somewhat familiar with Eikoh Hosoe though. someone else gave me his name and i looked through his work a couple of hours ago. he does some wild stuff. over-dramatic scenes and cool photo manipulation that i can only guess works by exposing two different negatives on the same print. how to pull that off without messing things up, i don't even know how to approach the subject
you're Michalis Kotsopoulos, right? the city/marketplace images are great. i don't want to go too in-depth because i'll probably just regurgitate what you've already heard, but these two images have some really hip color schemes. and i love that environment. if you have any more photos related to those, i'd love to see them if you feel like sharing
everything is expensive 8( in the past thirty days, i think i wasted a few hundred on small, random things. i haven't been bit hard by the equipment bug yet, so i'm a little scared
i really wish my camera wasn't being repaired this past week. i could've
stolen used your idea for this depth of field project we just finished. i would've loved to do the same thing with Dizzy, I-No, or one of my other figures. instead, i did trees from an old roll 8( mine were depressing

oh man i almost forgot about this guy. i visited his site a couple of years ago when i was looking for pictures of the Harajuku scene. he takes a lot of shots of people and city buildings, two subjects i love. thanks a lot for reminding me of him!
actually, for a while, i was convinced he was sushi bunny, but ... no, nevermind
