From my "Suds and Smiles" series.

Now that I'm past the first two photos I'm starting to get some variety, not just the happy-go-lucky smiling faces that you're used to seeing.

This series is about making a collection of a variety of people. I want to explore myself interacting with people as well as them interacting with the camera. Everyone handles it differently whether they are open and goofy or more reserved and shy. The poses that they choose represents them. I also had the models gather up belongings of theirs that they found meaningful, or that represented them, and I carefully placed them in the scene.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-08
Pink Perfection by LashelleValentine
A fun, vibrant, creative and gorgeously colorful shot! ( Featured by Mrs-Durden )
:iconiwarnedyouaboutstair:
the composition is good. Overhead pictures and overhead bathtub nudes can often feel overdone, but it really seems to work here. I like the contrast between the shades of pink in the backsplash, the color of the water ,and your skintone. Additionally, this serves to frame the subject. The color and uneven coverage of the fruit cereal in the tub adds another layer of visual interest and helps keep the overall tone of frivolity in the composition. The playful tone of the pose and composition helps to create a feeling that is someplace between figure study and pin up nude. It's not serious/stern art, but it's not just cheesecake nudity either.

She is so darn sexy and cute. I love this series. This is what people should feel about their nudity. Let it be fun, silly, sexy and maybe amazing.
