Through a screen, lightly

June 13th, 2007

D20 1340 Through a screen, lightly When I was in Houston back in March Niecy introduced me to a friend who was interested in trying figure modeling. Vivian Caroline had never modeled before, let alone nude, but we gave it a try.

I seldom photograph models who have no prior experience, perhaps because I will never try to talk a model into posing nude. I think that is a very personal decision and one that should never be made under any sort of pressure. I would never want a model to go away from a shoot feeling bad because she had done something she wasn’t sure she wanted to do.

But Vivian was sure and was comfortable and relaxed as we looked for good settings around her small farm. We didn’t really have enough time to do a thorough shoot and the location was a bit limiting, but I think we got a few good shots and Vivian got past that first time nude in front of a camera.

This shot was done through some screening that was in partial sun. I liked what the dark screen did to the tones and the thought it made the speckled light look more interesting. And Vivian has a beautiful form to reflect that light.
