Norma Forss Young man with a pipe

23 Jan

My mother photographed mostly children for 50 years but she also photographed adults.  She did this in an amazing way … a bit different than the way that she would photograph children.  In my mothers day, especially in the period of the 1940’s through to the 1950’s men had a certain style of dress and demeanor that my mother exemplified in the way of a fine photo portrait.

I am planning to do the same thing.  I cannot pose people the way that my mother did but I have a plan.  Look at this portrait and see if you would like one very much like it.

What is my plan ?  Oh, yeah … I have a 1937 folding camera made by Ziess Icon that can make a picture just like the one you see here .  I can see a great portrait suddenly while I am in the process of taking someones’ picture.  I am good at this.  I cannot pose a subject the way my mom did.  You should know that the picture you see here was masterfully set up with two light sources, focus and exposure determination and then my mother would carefully coerce her subject into assuming the pose you see here from her camera position.  This process would take up to one hour.  my mother would not take a picture until all was perfect … for 50 years !

My plan:  My Ziess Icon camera has a fast (instant) firing shutter when I have twenty foot bulb shutter release attached to it.  When I see something perfect in the way of my subjects composure I can take a picture instantly with just a slight touch of my twenty foot bulb release. This I will be good at.

To start I will charge $120.  This will include proofs Norma Forss - Man with pipe001and a final print in a frame.

Are we all supposed to look superficial and mindless in all of our portrature … with a big smily face ?  Not in a serious fine portrait I say.

Forss God and the Devil

Forss God and the Devil

18 Jan

    When doomsday was upon us (December 21, 2012) I decided to review my writings … after staying in bed all morning and looking out the window now and then.

   This is the behavior of a person that is constantly (learning) having to correct some errors in the area of my behavior being too goofy for society or not. 

   As an example, this same person (me) is always telling others about some channeling that I am doing to extract a great body of wisdom to write about, uh … from the Gods (s0rt of).  This, of course, is a big  No No in society.  I don’t care about this though because I feel that I have to be honest in my behavior, especially if I want to continue chanelling with the Gods.  In my writings I describe the writing I do as coming from some Aliens.  This is true in the best meaning of the word “Alien” because I do not know who the source of the wisdom I proport is.   Worse than this there are a few of them (the source for my wisdom) so I never concern myself about wanting to know true wisdom for any subject I choose.  I call the whole lot of them “The Others”.  

     So, I think I can know it all … I can know it all simply by communicating with the others.   I don’t I ( I cannot turn them on and off at will).  I really quite dumb, but I am privy to a unique wisdom source that I have developed a channel to.   What I do is to simply ask for some wisdom about a topic (ask and you shall recieve).  This takes time.  I find that I have to keep my quest alive for quite a long time to get what I want.  

     When I reviewed my writing I was aghast at some of the errors I found.  This is me.  The wisdom in my writings has no errors though.  This is most uncanny and it is prompting me to put excerpts of the wisdom on my blog to prove what I am about.  I have a direct comparison between God and the Devil excerpt from page 556-557 of my book ENOS here.  See what you think.  This is them !
