My Nude Year: Day 48 of 365

We discussed tonight’s photo and wanted to concentrate on form. By using a strong one light setup we were able to control the light and shadow area of Shannon’s body. We broke a rule of composition with this photo. Normally you would a female model to look toward the light however to accent Shannon’s profile we had her look away. The shadows under her breasts really give you a sense of shape with the transition from dark to light. We shot this photo slightly under exposed which gives Shannon’s body a nice soft gray in the black and white spectrum.
