A Thousand Ships

I spent a little time shooting with one of my favorite workshop models at our last Weekend with the Masters Workshop which was Feb 26-28th.

These were shot at ISO 800 in ambient light in an upstairs bathroom. A significant departure in style for myself but the light was just so nice in the room in the late afternoon I could not bring myself to add strobes to it for the sake of a lower ISO.

Boby,

I like them all! It's so fortunate to have such perfect lighting. Was there another window or just reflections from mirrors and light walls. The make and girl are both glamorous. I guess she's not pretending to be pregnant or she is? I was wondering whether or not this should be glamor or art but let's leave t here for now!

We had the beautifully diffused light through the wall of glass block and then lots of reflected light off of mirrors and taupe walls.

The girl is indeed just over 3 months pregnant. You may recognize her as the same model from the image Balance which caused such a stir when I posted it here. No High Heels this time :)

Perhaps seeing it as a B&W will make placing them in a genre easier for you

Bobby,

It's good to revisit here. This set of pictures is again pleasing to me in that it wraps the pregnant female with delicate erotic praise without being erotic. That's a gentle touch. I have always admired the pregnant woman. It's got to be a heavy load to carry. Lots of demands and a whole new chemistry of one's body. Hardly conducive to feeling light and dainty.

Your work returns our minds to the side of attractive femininity that celebrates her as a form of beauty.

Hi, Bobby,

I spent a little time shooting with one of my favorite workshop models at our last Weekend with the Masters Workshop which was Feb 26-28th. . . .
Lovely images.

The last three are somehow reminiscent of movie promo stills, perhaps even from different decades.

Best regards,

Doug

Thanks Doug I appreciate the comment. Even almost a year later these still rate among my favorite photos. I recently upgraded to the D3S and have really begun exploring natural light again now that I have some real control over the noise.
