Lina Scheynius I like her loose, ethereal snapshot style, and the playful sexuality. Nudity.

Interesting. Beautiful. Except for the navigation.

Heh. I know. I've already had a couple of other photographers who I was going to post here who I just decided weren't good enough to get past their crummy navigation.

Massive Side-scrolling? Come on!

Massive Side-scrolling?

The groups seem to be well sequenced, I don't so much mind the side scroll here.
You gotta scroll some way no matter what, no?

I can scroll up-down with my mousewheel. That's what it is for. Side scrolling is intrusive and annoying.

That's not scrolling, that's browsing.

I can't tell whether you saw my last post or not, Sarge.

Is it on purpose that a lot of the photos on there remind me of The Witch from Left 4 Dead?

So does being a photographer lead to people spending half their time having sex, or is it that people who spend half their time having sex are more likely to become photographers? From my experience, I think it's the latter.

Um, 1adam12, I saw a very few sex-related pics per year in those diary sections. Does that really seem so frequent to you?

Macbook.. Scroll sideways with 2 fingers on the trackpad!

I can scroll up-down with my mousewheel.

I can scroll left/right with mine by pushing it left or right.

As for the photos themselves, not that impressed.

These are great. Her style is casual yet still sophisticated and her expression of tone and emotion is strong and pleasing.

(Anyone bitching about the sidescrolling probably hasn't visited too many photographer's sites. It's rather common. I actually find it a convenient way to scroll through a lot of pictures. Anyway, if that is your only comment in someone's post it is probably best to just leave it to yourself.)

These photographs didn't really speak to me, with some exceptions. I really liked the first photograph here, for example. But a lot were too "snapshotty," for lack of the correct term, for my tastes.

(I used to really hate sites that required side-scrolling, until I bought a computer with a trackpad that scrolls happily in any direction. But if you don't have a fancy notebook, or a nice mouse, those kinds of sites are really miserable to look at.)

That is by far the most trouble I've ever gone to to see a booby.

I'll agree that it was too much trouble for a booby, but the most trouble? You must have wasted your adolescence.

This discussion sucks.

I liked the pictures a lot. They seemed very personal - she captured a lot of minor details in people's facial expressions and the environments of the rooms that resonated with me. A lot of it looked like a more beautiful version of my life.

Is it the most original subject matter? No. Have I seen photos in a similar style? Yes. But she tweaked enough of the details, in terms of style and composition, to make the photos feel fresh and to capture what I will, for lack of better terminology, call "an aesthetic vibe that I have experienced floating around lately."

I'm with mai, the casualness of these photos belies the talent of the photographer...these are not snapshots.

Hold down shift.

This thread just became worthwhile.

How is it that I've been using computers for the last umpty-umph years without ever learning that?
