DO WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US?
Panel three - The seen - Work in progress element

For those who have been playing along at home, moonlight was as close to a black goat as I could find ... and as goats and suburban photo studios don't really go together, to photoshop I went ... needless to say, editing out grass behind the fur of moonlight was a rather tedious process ... one i get to repeat again with a lamb and a pale horse ...

Undertaken as part of Semester one, Photo one, Master of Photography at @rmitphoto with @piajohnsonphotography as supervisor and @torika_b as lecturer.

Thanks to Kym and the team at Freedom Hill Sanctuary @freedomhillsanctuary for allowing us to feature moonlight in this series.

Loving the alien

This is a portrait of my love @angeliquejoy.creative taken on the day of their 40th in one of the many skins they exist within ... I love them

Title: Presented without comment

This is from a shoot with Bella Dejac when Angelique and I were last over in Melb. The shoot functioned as a collaboration of performer and photographer as well as a lighting test old school hotel room style in prep for my #RMIT work this semester.

Some of the other shots will likely make their way to #thehardline

Printing tests and the hunt for the white unicorn ...

So another day spent with David Hobbs of Master of Prints profiling and testing stocks supplied by Daniela Barth has resulted in more experiments going full circle.

As per the last.post we had been profiling and testing high white stocks in an effort to find an alternative to the warmth of photo rags I have always printed on ... And.this far, as much as the new options handled the highlight range pretty well, the blacks didn't have the inky depth I've grown to love in the blacks ... And given this semester's work is so heavily reliant on the blacks ... It's back to the beginning for me .. for now 😉

In saying that, the process learning has been invaluable and lead to another set of print experiments that add an addition level of wtf to the black and whites ... Which now need to be tested on smooth versus textured stocks 😉

Some people think that the print part of the process is just a printing exercise or worse get a button pushing one .. but for me, who has gone through the graphic design journey of press checks and fine level tweaks on a working press in collaboration with the printer doing the printing, being able to make minute adjustments with David to get something unique out at the pointy end is priceless 

Oh and he was happy for me to make up my own test.file because the photodisc test print makes my eyes bleed lol

Thanks again to David and Daniela for being on this bizarre RMIT experimental journey ...

Until next time the hunt continues ...

As a fine-art photographer, and as someone who has been a graphic designer for longer, one of the most important things that I have learnt is is that the collaborative working relationship with the printer is paramount. I am trusting the printer to work on the final print output of any project and knowing that they care ad understand what I am after matters. Printing is a cost, both in time and resources, and there is nothing more frustrating as a creative than working with production houses/businesses that put processes before people. Ive ran into it a few times, and the moment I do, I go elsewhere with my work, or I stop printing until I can.

In the case of fine-art printing, it is even more important to work with the 'individual' cares about the relationship between art and output for without it, the fine tuning and experimenting with the minute details just isn't possible. 

In Angelique's and my case we are lucky to know and collaborate with a Master Printer, David Hobbs. He runs his own studio called Master of Prints in Adelaide, and as much as I have known and worked with David while he was working at other print production businesses around Adelaide since I crossed paths with him back in the 90s, I am glad he is out being himself in his own space now. Service and care is important to an artist, and that it is part of his business model makes ALL the difference.

As part of my #RMIT journey, its really fucking helpful to have someone local to try my crazy ideas with matte stocks, and the ends of the dynamic range with before sending them over the border. Sure I could send my files to Les or Andrey Walking and get them to print them based on what I send, but where's the experimental in-person fun of that 😉

Id also like to send a shoutout to Daniela Barth of Spicers Paper for the ongoing help with me trying to find my unicorn matte stock ... I think I am almost there with the stock David profiled for me today

For those of you who have been following for a while, from before the covidshitshow times, you will remember this project I have started, many a moon ago ...

I'm now at the point of the second phase of the shoot, where I need to focus the narrative with subjects that include the following:

- couple and groups (romantic, platonic or aesthetic)
- non-binary, trans and gender diverse peoples
- queer (in all its meanings)
- freaks (subcultures that push against the normative society in which we live)
- adult industry types (who are comfortable exploring the harder end of the project)

if you are interested, have a look over at https://b.leideritz.com/challenged/thehardline/ for what has been taken so far (i have more still to edit) and drop me a line

at this point i have shot a fair bit of the softer end of the project (art nudes, fashion nudes etc) however if you don't fit into the above peoples let me know you are out there anyhow, as there are other projects on the horizon.

of times gone past

this shot was taken in, i think '96, when i was at tafe, by a photographer doing the commercial photography course at time i was doing the adv/graphic design one at croydon tafe. i can't for the life of me remember the name of said photographer, i should have written it down somewhere 😉

everything has changed since then, but nothing has changed at the same time ... as is the nature of time.

yes - i am SO fucking grateful angelique and i are in this together, i expect if not for them, i would have matched my hermit level to the length of my beard by now. currently, i still have some energy left for connnecting to things outside of our home, though it is reducing daily at this point.
yes - i am still doing branding/graphic/web design, email or message if you wish to talk re this skillset.
yes - i am still taking creative commercial photoshoot bookings for those who need promotional, portrait or other content created in the style that i create, as with design, reach out of you wish to talk.
yes - i am still planning to get back to personal art works and projects when time and life permits, there is a backlog of edits, design and projects that need to be put back on the priority list as soon as i can, for my own sanity if nothing else. projects still in some level of incomplete are #thehardline and #notnormalother.
yes - some of my prints/merch/art are for sale, if there is something you like, reach out and i can quote it for you as with design and photography above.
yes - noncompliant is still 'paused' with me as the bottleneck, i need to get my head back into doing design for joy, rather than cashflow.
yes - as a self employed creative, times like this where everything is unknown for most of my work and creative target audiences, i can relate to others who are also taking everything moment by moment.
yes - i/we have a new hobby since we cannot travel, weird and poisonous (for us or the cats) plants ... it is something to do away from screens with aj. feel free to contact us if you have any strange and odd plants you think we may like, or if you have said plants as cuttings 
yes - the lnp government has fucked us all with its constant and expected inability to do anything but wait for the rapture. unless you were already wealthy based on the hard work of others, in which case you are fine im sure
yes - client's keep reminding me when public holidays are, as every day is a monday when i wake up in the morning
 ... i have included a photo of a spray because #interiordesign
