The models I collaborate with make such wonderful shapes when I’m photographing them. Like this one of Frances. It’s a simple jackknife pose, but I love the slight bit of camera movement that gives it a sense of flight.
I am drawn to the lines of this, almost sprouting in a V-shape. A graceful zig-zag pattern of femininity.
I was photographing Frances under black light during this shoot. That deep blue light tends to exaggerate the contrast of an image. And when I tone the blue to sepia, the contrast remains, but it’s a little more natural looking than blue skin. Another way to experiment with light.
Frances and I always enjoy trying things that are a little unusual from a creative standpoint. And even though the resulting image looks like normal lighting, there are some subtle differences that we both find interesting.
And as with this and any photograph from my blog and many others on my main billysheahan.com website, you can purchase prints by clicking on the Buy Print button below each photo. Thanks to many of you who have already done just that. I greatly appreciate your kind support!
