but let's face it: i'm not a great photographer, my camera is old and virtually obsolete, i couldn't afford to pay models to pose for me, and i don't have the notoriety (or people skills) for girls to "go wild" and get naughty for my camera when i toss them a meager t-shirt. (and i have a lot of t-shirts to potentially give away.)
fortunately, there are a handful of brave photographers on flickr who proudly post their erotic photos with a CC license, allowing people like me to create derivative works without fear of legal action. one of the most prolific of these photographers is a user who calls himself ioerror. because ioerror has posted so many public nudes with a CC license, i wanted to bend one of his photographs first as a reward, a way to "give back" to the flickr community. my first such bends are now on flickr. i won't post any of the photos to the blog, as many of them are obviously not work-safe, but you can view the set here.
this is the first time i've bent the photo of a complete stranger on flickr, so i don't know how he'll react. but as he takes a lot of infrared portraits and also photographed a recent SRL show, i suspect he's progressive enough not to get too offended.¶
