People Ride Out

This year there were high level bike builders, hard riders and cool human beings from around the globe and they all went over the high passes from France to Spain. Some went fast, some went less-fast, one almost got his balls burned off by a lithium battery. Southsiders wanted to feature all 50 but there was no time.

In one of these rooms, and almost without blinds or reflectors, the sitter could be “worked” on a semi-circle or half oval, and “lighted” either in front or on either side at pleasure, and with the greatest facility. I determined, there and then, to build my next studio on similar principles.

My studio can be lighted from either side; but the “light of lights” is the north one, and that is a large fixed window 11 by 9 feet with a single slope of two and a half feet in the height.

Seeing Without Thinking

The Citroën DS 5LS R concept car will be presented at the Beijing Motor Show. This all-new and unique version of the DS 5LS showcases all the attributes of the production model, chief among them power and top-quality materials.

Following on from the DS3 Cabrio Racing and DS4 Racing concept cars, the DS 5LS R highlights DS expertise though a blend of top-level performance and luxury fully in step with the DS spirit.

Making of Photo Shoot

A photo shoot is generally used in the fashion or glamour industry, whereby a model poses for a photographer at a studio where multiple photos are taken to find the best ones for the required brief. The “model” is not always a person, however; for instance, advertising in print often requires photographic depiction of advertised goods, and food can be the subject of magazine articles (often in very elaborate presentations).

Breaking The Mold!

Picking up my sword I leaned upon it, looking down on the dead body of my foeman, and as I thought of the battle I had just fought and won a great idea was born in my brain—the outcome of this and the suggestion.
