Hi Jeff: Just when I think I have found a favorite among your paintings, you come up with another one that is just amazing. I wish I knew how you created such magic with your camera. Would you mind if I ask what camera you use for this particular work? It is astoundingly dramatic! Best regards, Joan

Jeff Burgess replied:

Hi Joan....first thanks for your comment. I used a Nikon D70s for this image. But the magic is in the post processing in Photoshop (CS 1 or 2 as I can't afford the later editions). The work involves use of many, many layers and different cloning, erasing, or other techniques which are worked using a pen system. I am, frankly, not a very good photographer but a much better photoshop master. Thanks.

Description

Geisha photograph highly manipulated. Geisha (ܿ￿?), geiko (ܿ￿) or geigi (ܿ￿￿ are traditional Japanese female entertainers who act as hostesses and whose skills include performing various Japanese arts such as classical music, dance and games. As described in Wikipedia "The most literal translation of geisha into English would be "artist," "performing artist," or "artisan." Another name for geisha is geiko (ܿ￿), which is usually used to refer to geisha from western Japan, which includes Kyoto". The art form is fascinating as it combines a richness of color and pagentry with the beauty of conversation and interaction. The only modern maiko that can apprentice before the age of eighteen are in Kyoto.[3] So on average, Tokyo hangyoku (who typically begin at 18) are slightly older than their Kyoto counterparts (who usually start at 15). Historically, geisha often began the earliest stages of their training at a very young age, sometimes as early as at 3 or 5 years which is not unlike what happens in Hollywood with some actresses. The early shikomi (servant) and minarai (watching apprentice) stages of geisha training lasted years, which is significantly longer than in contemporary times.

It is still said that geisha inhabit a separate reality which they call the kary￿￿kai or "the flower and willow world." Before they disappeared the courtesans were the colorful "flowers" and the geisha the "willows" because of their subtlety, strength, and grace.




I have combined flowers in this image as an expression of this beauty and history.
