*Lit by Blue Leaves*
Cyanotype on Bockingford 300g HP White
Plant Texture: Palm Tree Leaf
Before I started the Human Nature(s) project I had never shot nudes. The part that I did not anticipate is the importance of self-assurance on the model’s part, never easy at the best of times (if I had a dollar for every time someone I was shooting had told me « I don’t look good on photographs »…) but even harder when the model is nude. And yet self-assurance and boldness delivers stunning pictures, as exemplified by this amazing portrait of Madline… I think the cyanotype adds to the softness to great effect.
