Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-04
Classique Royale by `phydeau ( Suggested by CGiraldez and Featured by DistortedSmile )
:icondanausphoto:
This is a work of photographic artistry at its' finest. I love how you have represented an enormous space around your subject with the use of light and shadow. The blackness around the striking beauty of the flesh. The choice of such a royal purple color for the throw works perfectly to transition the model with the surrounding darkness. I love the classic posing of the model that insinuates motion while the entire image is one of stillness. There is true passion in her expression and bearing and by the viewer for the model. This is beautifully done, it inspires me.
What do you think?

Wow! Amazing photo! I love how the model contrasts very nicely with all of the dark colors and how the lighting combined with the contrast adds a really cool effect. The way the purple almost completely fades into the black is very cool. Overall very nice picture, a well deserved DD. :)

At first I thought this was a painting. The colors and the lighting, not to mention the model and her pose, seem too perfect to be a photo. This shot must have taken quite some effort to prepare as nothing seems left to chance. Very impressive work and a well deserved DD if I ever saw one!

What a lovely comment. Thank you. :D

The lighting was definitely planned, and this was the look I was going for. The set-up, surprisingly, was done on a cockroach budget. I did it with a single light that I built myself for about $60, and it was shot in my apartment's dining room. The backdrop came from previous shoots.

I won't undermine the effort put into it by both of us, but it wasn't a monumental Hollywood feat. We just both know the tricks of the trade. ;)

I'm glad it reminded you of a painting. I've paid attention to the lighting of painters. That's a compliment.

I'm glad you like it.

Absolutely gorgeous! I especially like the way her legs are posed and the fact that she might just be naked, but we don't really know that. Glamorous indeed!
