The central theme of this photo set was the idea of “a powerful mistress caught in a moment of weakness” The only source of light I used was a continuous stage flood I keep for video productions. My oh-so-popular wide lens was the only option as the room we took these pictures in is extremely tiny. It was an empty cellar room with ugly walls and low ceiling which means it served the purpose really well.
The Mistress set portrays emotions of an otherwise powerful mistress, who was caught in a moment of weakness. She wants to be seen as a powerful woman who’s got firm control over herself and others, it’s just a facade hiding the weakening soul.
Ivana did an excellent job posing and balancing on the stool in high heels. My ex did a fantastic job handling the flood and the diffuser. Feel the touch of emotion with The Mistress in distress.
I believe “nude art meets fetish photography” would be a good enough description of this gallery. The dagger which you can see in some of the pictures came from my collection of medieval weaponry I am a big fan of. While daggers are not that typical of BDSM, I think it added a nice touch to the theme.
I did these Fine Art Nudes with MJ who is a marathon runner so she’s super fit with body that’s well toned and firm. Body like that is a treat to light up for fine art photography. I used my heavy duty black muslin for dark background and two strobes to light the model up.
Fine art nude photography puts more focus on artistic appeal so posing, lighting and composition are more important than erotic value of each image. MJ made my job in achieving it easy and I believe it shows in the gallery:
Brooke was a love at first sight. I noticed her when I was shooting a gig of my friend’s band. After the concert, Brooke went to shake hands with said friend so I asked who she was. She hooked us up, we scheduled the shoot and this is the result.
Brooke was definitely a pleasure to work with. She’s both a great model and a fun person to hang around. Shortly before the shoot, Brooke shaved her hair and donated it to a cancer patient. When I first saw her at that concert, she still had her original hair with dreads, but she parted with a few days later for a good cause.
All pictures were taken in my studio against black background with two strobes. Brooke showed up with razor blade claiming that she was unsure if I wanted her pubes shaved. I explained to her that I shoot natural women and do not alter their appearance. I want my models to be themselves, the way they would be if they were not scheduled for the photoshoot that day. Brooke wears no make up in any of the pictures. This gallery depicts as natural a woman as they get.
This is Nicky. We met on the day these pictures were taken. She wore these really awesome Harley Davidson boots which literally begged to be photographed on a naked chick.
The office chair you see in pictures is the very same one I’m sitting on right now. It’s my computer desk chair I use when I work on my computer.
What made the shoot most memorable was that it was the first time I worked with a model who was taller than me. At 5’11” I may not the tallest guy around, but it’s a decent height to have most woman tilt their head upwards to look me in the eyes. Up to this point, every single model I had worked with was significantly shorter than me. Not anymore.
So there you have it – the tallest model on my site photographed nude with just Harley boots on. I used black muslin backdrop and two strobes to light up these fine art nudes. For some pictures, I only triggered one:
Ivana with whom I shot before brought her friend Wanda along to join us for the photoshoot. Wanda has never ever before posed nude and intention was not to anyway. We took few erotic high heels pics with sexy stockings and then the idea came to mind and girls both went nude to model for some of my most memorable and most appreciated images. The Puzzle piece gained high recognition throughout nude photography community and is loved in every corner of the world.
They say human creativity is at its peak late at night – and this just proves it. These pictures were taken long after midnight and thanks to nicely shaped curves of Ivana and Wanda, I was able to set up and capture this not big in size, but in value, set of photos. Single Elinchrome studio strobe was used for lighting against black muslin background.
