::::

I did a nude study using high and low key lighting and this is midpoint in the project.

 

It was a very difficult thing for me to do. Not because of the lighting, but because of how exposed I am. I can barely stand having my picture taken, period. Let alone to be naked for all the world to see. But I feel it necessary to put it out here. It is not something to be ashamed of. It is art.

 

Photographers have been studying the human form for centuries. We are beautiful creatures of all shapes, folds, colours and sizes. And I would be contradicting everything this project stood for in my mind if I didn't allow them to be seen.

 

This taught me a great deal. Is teaching me. And I am thankful for the lessons.

    Perhaps this is a typically male response, but I imagine myself connecting the mole/dots.

    I kinda like my little moles. Thanks for liking them, too.

    Beautiful picture! The curves and softness of the light work together perfectly.

    I can see why many others like your (uhmmm, more revealing) shots more... I've gotta say, this one is absolutely stunning. The low key lighting creates an atmosphere and mood, that I think is simply stronger than the others.

    the fact there is hardly a straight line anywhere in the composition lends itself to the beauty of female form as well. I'm not sure if the shadow created from your arm is disruptive, it actually may be integral to the frame. I dunno.

    Stunning work, beautiful. And you are remarkable for sharing this with each of us. Cheers.

    Hi, Jeremy! Thank you so much for that. I really appreciate it. And I caught some of your PATH shots. It looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Sorry I missed it. Catch you next time.

    prodesma - Thank you very very much for your thoughts here. It helps me look at it from a fresh perspective and enables me evaluate the technical aspects which is sometimes difficult to do when it is your own work. Thanks again.

    GBTL: Truly lovely. Isn't it nice when one endeavor (i.e. photography in this case) ends up teaching us about things that might seem entirely unrelated at first (body awareness, artistic philosophy etc.)?

    The soft shadows on gentle curves really works.

    Seen in the Low Key group.
