My Nude Year: Day 129 of 365

This evening I asked Shannon if she would like to try a boudoir style photo. She took a few minutes to freshen up her makeup and we started on the master bed. I had Shannon put her hand above her head with her legs up and bent at the knees. My intent in this pose was to layer the image. I wanted Shannon’s hands to blur due to their closeness to the lens, then have Shannon’s eye in sharp focus and from there have the image blur again toward her raised legs. By doing this it really gives you a sense of depth to the photo. The pop of Shannon’s eye and her red lipstick really grab your attention. In looking at the final finished photo I only wished I had moved her legs slightly to one side due to the bedpost in the background looking a little strange.

Until tomorrow,

JW Purdy
