Well apparently +Google+  has decided it won't let me keep using a half way decent service that has seen nearly 90% of the people I interacted with disappear over the last 2 years because Google stopped carrying about us.

So I think this may be one of my last posts which is sad.

I have started using Instagram a fair bit so feel free to catch my stuff there @robelliottca 

So lets potentially end things with something near the beginning.

With the passing of the Canadian icon Leonard Cohen and all else going out.. I figured I'd share this.

Remember Democracy is an ebb and flow. As stupid people are if there is a mistake it can be corrected in time.

as +Google+ seems like they are soon to force us to the icky less functional "new" design.. my time with Google+ is going to diminish greatly. If you want to keep up with what I'm doing feel free to follow me on instagram

Since December of 2014 I've been having fun styling my own shoots. Would love to do so much more. This winters project is to learn to sew.

Another with Miranda.

It is the first time I worked with a dedicated hair stylist. so I made sure to take a few photos for her.

We were about to be rained on.. at least it seemed that way. so I left the 30mm (50mm eqiv) on instead of switching to the longer lens. Still it is and interesting result.

I could have kept playing with the light and the background. I really do like adding light to darkness rather than shaping a bright scene. I'm much more low key then high.

I'm pretty sure this is THE shot from this shoot.

Fall is a good time for me with portraits.
Two years ago I was in Toronto with a band and got some of my favourite portraits. Last year I was a bit hit or miss I tried to do a shoot right after a panic attack and screwed it up pretty bad. Then at a lumber yard in November with a paper dress I got one of my favourite photos ever. Seeing +Frank Doorhof shooting a paper dress himself around the same time made me feel even better.

This year I made a dress out of Plastic garbage bags, cling wrap and tinfoil. This is made 100% out of these materials It is not glued onto a cloth dress or a bra or something like that. This is all plastic, glue and tinfoil. I even made string out of the cling wrap to tie the model in.

I made many many mistakes with it. I have never made a dress like this before. I have only ever made one dress previous to this and it was paper. I have never worked with these materials either. So all in all it isn't bad. I failed twice and had to start over and even this I kinda consider a failure in construction. However it produced images that are really neat. Which is the whole reason I did it.

In the end I designed a fashion sculpture, I built it with no pattern or understanding, solved the problems and was able to produce something that is kinda neat. In that sense this is a pretty big win.

being as this seems to be required... this is not a paid nor professional shoot, no money changed hands, total time spent was about 25 hours over 9 weeks, there were several panic attacks and a full 5 weeks where I got no work done because of the people that this disclaimer is here for

Special Thanks to the model Miranda

for making this possible. Both were wonderful to work with.

Though I enjoy doing Landscapes and live near one of the natural wonders of the world I still have been focusing on other areas lately.
Portraits and as it happens the occasional wearable sculpture.

This is a shot near Niagara Falls (that you can see in the background) of the wonderful Miranda in a dress made totally of plastic, and tinfoil.

This is kinda a landscape so I thought I'd put this here. If you'd like to see more of my work I do have a portrait collection (https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/cf7BFB)

Or you can follow me on Instagram which is a combination of landscape and portraiture
