mistaken identity

A long time ago I made the new year's resolution to update my Flickr twice a week. What. A. Lie. But I had an English project to do for the book "Farenheit 451" where we had to make an art project honouring one of the many themes of the novel. So I decided to do photography for the theme of a lost identity. I forgot how much I miss doing concept portraits! I had so much fun doing this shoot. There's something very freeing about doing concept photography.


So anyways, after uploading them to Flickr, I decided to put them on Deviantart despite my general dislike for the site. Someone commented on the above photo saying "May I make some suggestions?" I thought he/she meant suggestions about the photography. So being my naive self, I say "Sure?". The reply I got back was a suggestion that I do a slightly pornographic shoot (which included a lollipop, might I add). They had even sent me reference photos for poses & an outfit suggestion. I guess that is why I do not like Deviantart. Who would've known?

p.s. I'm only 15, for goodness sake.

I swear, the people on deviantart don't like your pictures unless they border on porn. Seriously.

I think these are great, though :]

Oh that suggestion was so terrible! This is why I hate "Lolita" inspired looks, makes old guys think that crap is appropriate.

Ugh, I hate internet creepers. There are so many everywhere.

I really like this concept. I was actually just thinking about doing something kind of like it for a photography project.
