My Nude Year: Day 65 of 365

Tonight we wanted to concentrate on line, not necessarily the line of Shannon’s figure however that is present in this diagonal composition, the line of light. We were more focused on the line of the light as it fell on her body. The lighting was set to be hard light, only revealing what we wanted to be seen showing up in the final image. Even with hard lighting we were able to capture soft transitions from light to dark by the angle of the light and the position of Shannon’s figure. We did purposefully break one rule of composition in this photo. Normally you would want your female figure model to be looking toward the light source, but to add some mystery and interest to the final photo we had Shannon’s face turn away.

Until tomorrow have a great day.
