Featured on the Island

August 5, 2014

I would like to thank the editor of the Island (http://www.cometoisland.com/), Kai, to feature my CK inspired underwear editorial on his website. The Island is a New York based fashion blog, and Kai first spotted one of my series of images on Model Mayhem, so I guess I was "talent scouted".

The interesting thing is that it wasn't an underwear photo session. I did a rugby theme photoshoot with my model Igor Khvylya, and we decided to do just a few underwear photos in the last 10 minutes of the session for fun. 

I am not even hiding my zealousness of high megapixel count and ultra high resolution when editing those pictures. On the left of the pictures below is the full picture, and on the right is the 100% crop on my 17-inch laptop screen. That extremely high magnification comes from my extreme enlargement of the picture in photoshop, from 24 megapixels to 89 megapixels. Yes I know I am crazy, but I just love ultra high resolution. One day I will print all my pictures to 40x60... if I had the money. But the good thing is black and white seems to make the digital artifacts from resizing somewhat forgivable. You can obviously see the artifacts, but I think it looks acceptable.
