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:
Brooke and Margaret never met before and this was their very first time even meeting me. When Margaret arrived in the studio, I had already been shooting with Brooke for a while. Having seen that the shoot was in full swing, Margaret didn’t waste any time, took her clothes off and joined us for these pictures.
Shooting with two models who were as excited as I was to get good pictures done allowed me to unleash my photographic imagination and turn it into this set. A photographer’s vision, when complemented with cooperative models can mix originality with weirdness and result in unique imagery that proves nude photography doesn’t always look repetitive.
I used 4 studio strobes to light these pictures up with. Two were used to illuminate the models and 2 I pointed directly into the wall behind them to make it looking bright. White wall also bounced some of the strobe light back into the models for an fine backlight.
There is no particular reason why I named this set of picture Tsunami – it was just the first thing that popped into my mind. MJ who modelled for this set has a well toned, firm body. A body like that is a joy to photograph with artistic studio lighting, which I did later on, but we first did some warm up pictures which you can see in this gallery. I used two studio strobes without diffusers for lighting.
Exclusive Backstage Pass is a set of pictures I took of my nude models taking a break during the photoshoot. These are not staged in any way and are pretty much just snapshots. In my studio I have a chesterfield area which is available to models to use during breaks and sometimes when they do, my camera continues snapping.
Girls will always be girls so the backstage area gets pretty messy with all the make-up stuff and other items of frequent use but I’m not without sin either. I have bags of lenses, a bunch of cables and other essentials each photo backstage area is full of and you can see it all in this photo set.
It goes without saying that nude models are content with their own bodies and see nakedness as nothing to be ashamed of. As a result, they don’t see a reason to cover up between the shoots and this gallery is the document of it all:
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.
