Wyllow - ~TheShadowsAreRising
Series: Nymph 2.0
Location: CoverShot Studio - Lawrence, MA
Note: Model is 19 years old. As always, be respectful.
I'm really excited to introduce my newest model, Wyllow-- who is the first model I have met through DA. I'm even more excited since this is my first studio shoot since January.
This is from our third set of our first shoot. Really, as we progress though these, the themes become darker, and the model becomes more mature (while still keeping an obviously beautiful youthfulness). There's a contrast between the modern and the fantastic, and a sense of drowning or dangerousness.
Now available as a print.
I have also worked this image into an album cover design, which can be seen via this [link]
Winner into the "8th Deadly Sin: Guilty Pleasures" [link]
Here's what I had to say for the contest, which also explains the image very well:
One of the things that makes me most guilty as a photographer is failing to include the model's face. The odd thing is, while I love portraits, I also try to make every image interesting and compelling as a composition, not just as a depiction.
So for me, the Eighth Sin for a Fetish Photographer is simple... Objectification. This image is one of my favorite, and most recent, examples of that struggle.
