Edge Lighting with Sara (NSFW)

Sara a trainer at Topp Performance, in Port Elgin came down to shoot with me last week. I’ve shot fitness and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu before with Sara. Sara is a great place with her physique right now, powerful, muscular and nice and full. We decided to do some edge light photos during our session and they turned out really good.

Beautiful light across her back

Bodyscape of the core.

- The Athletic Implied Nudes series is an exploration of the human body under muscle stress— understanding the body’s strength, flexibility, and power. Clean backgrounds, hard lighting, and black & white photography work together to eliminate distractions and highlight the muscle groups and figure of my subjects.

Beginning with Mixed Martial Artists and Boxers, I have developed my technique to capture rapidly firing muscle groups at high speed in front of the lens. The resulting instinct for timing fight photography has lead to an ability to freeze my subjects at the peak of their motion. Discovering a better understanding of the human form with this project has transitioned into my commercial fitness work, maximizing composition and positioning to best showcase the human form.
