Simple, yet damn elegant. I love this style. It also has the added benefit of being rather easy to shoot. Seamless, light-gray paper background, one flash above and slightly behind the model, allowed to spill to the background. My personal favorite features are the overall chiaroscuro lighting, the arch of her back, and that little shadowy dimple on her right knee.
I envision this piece on the wall over a black leather davenport, about one foot of length extending beyond each end of the furniture.
When I got my photography site set up, I sent the link to a good friend and band mate, Mr. Ricki Martini. You see, he’s an expert of sorts, and a pioneer in all things web-related. He’s also one of the few persons on this planet that can offer me legitimate criticism wherein I take zero offense. ASIDE: He did offend me once. We just got back to Milwaukee from a gig in Chicago. He and Otis (bass player) were drunk and insisted I couldn’t sing for shit. They beat me up after my stupid g/f said that I “WAS” the band. They shoulda beat her up. Anyway, he must’ve surfed over to this blog site, because he offered the mild criticism that it lacked content…and boobs. Never one to disappoint, I offer you this, Mr. Martini…
