Oooooooh I may have saved the best part for last. This was just under a two hour photoshoot, we covered some fine art figure nudes, and conceptual long exposure photography all in one tiny motel room and utilizing every area of the room. I like that challenge. All that was left by this point was a small bathroom….luckily it was an older tile bathroom with some character, not the boring hotel bathroom with the neutral colors. So, there’s a toilet, a sink, and a tub / shower. Usually you wouldn’t incorporate a toilet with intimate shoots, and shower photos have been done to death on the internet. Especially with flatly lit on camera flash and glam shower poses. So, it was time to shift gears from figure nudes to conceptual and dark. The toilet was even going to get some use. Now keep in mind, probably none of my private clients would have me do anything like this for them, but I like conceptual work for galleries, and to hone my creative skills. Good inspiration for future.
Most of us have been here before, after a rough night 🙂 Some shutter drag on a tripod for effect 🙂
Dark, grim, love it! It also takes a great model to be able to be a chameleon like that. Now for some long exposure shower photos…8 second shutter speed with very robotic and deliberate motions, and stillness. It takes both a patient model and photographer to pull this off, not something you see much of. But I felt it was the most interesting way to utilize the concept and look.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these, I feel inspired and ready to serve private clients with their boudoir and nude photography heirlooms. As well as to create a fun memorable experience for them, and for them to give a gift that will be cherished forever.
