Personal nude work about beauty and sensuality, shot with a female model . This is a studio work approaching to atmospheric lighting, trying to create a relaxed night ambient with recognizable graphic shapes.
Colors were important to achieve the laid-back sensation, so they should be soft and limited to a few blue tones. Body shapes had to be simple and graphic to harmonize background lights as a complementary atmosphere element. Technically, the lighting was a mixture of two different sources: side soften flashes for her and continuous light bulbs for the background. Filters on light sources and personalized white balance did the job to get this cold quiet ambient.
The accurate results from shooting nudes are far from being an easy way to go- at least for me-, even more if you are searching for a really personal visual sensation. I hope I was able to communicate the viewers some of the feel of this photograph. All and all, this image tries to speak about beauty, desire and imagination. Among all my works I think this is one of my most personal favourites.
