My idea was to show highly contrasting lines on the body.
We worked with cut out masks following the lines of the model´s body and sent a strobe through that mask to obtain the bright forms. The rest of the set was lit by soft and subdued light giving some shine to the gold painted backdrop.
The bright and clear light lines lead to an exciting expression of the image though the woman in her calm and graceful pose is totally relaxed. An interesting contradiction.
