For the final special edition of Contact Sheet focusing on new Koinup talent, here are two newcomers (to the column) with excellent grasps of light and color and their uses.  First, take a look at these samples from “Lanay” that I’m adding to the group.  (Click each thumbnail for the Koinup page.)


These pictures glow like jewels and radiate color and interest to the eye, drawing you into the composition.  Lanay is a long-time photographer, judging by the size of her portfolio, but I wish I’d found these long ago.


And second, “Sythos” is very much a newcomer at this stage, with only some 100 pieces on Koinup — but he looks to have a good grasp of the power of the camera.  He seems fascinated by the potentials around the new vampire RPG sim of Venexia, but that isn’t the end of his work.


It’s been a pleasure featuring so much talent over this past month, and I thank Pier for suggesting this series of columns.
