A Grecian Goddess

A Grecian Goddess

Having a vision, model and location does not necessarily mean a well executed result.

In this case trying to create an art-nude image with a location a little too close to other amenities, and families having picnics in the unusually warm Irish weather,  meant I’d have to cheat and resort to photoshop.

So, after we finished our coffee there was no point in wasting the rest of the evening, so we headed back to the studio to see what we could come up with.  Having secured a ladder from floor to ceiling to use as a stand in pillar, Rachelle worked through many poses with the intention of dropping into the image we took before leaving our location set.  Then since the ladder was there, a few floor poses were the next logical progression, with a few roses for good measure…

Finally, working closer to my newly installed 2 metre high window, and ISO down to 1000, another set of poses using the roses produced some nice images too.  I was very pleased with the back drop too which was one of my black painted 8′ x 4′ plywood boards which had been used by the builders holding sand and cement for a few weeks outdoors.  A quick brush off and a well worn backdrop was made:-)
