I’ve continued to work on my fine art bodyscape images using a single light source. Each session I’m working on new ideas, some good, some not so good. I’ve added in some work using my 150-500 mm lens to shoot closeups when remaining back from the subject a bit. I am going to continue refining my technique in the area.
- 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.
