Workshop – Inspirational Nudes (NSFW)

Posted on Posted in Art, Nude, Photography, Workshop

On Sunday, I held a last-minute workshop with the fabulous Sally at my studio in Vienna, Austria.
I did not really know what I would do with Sally except that we would do nudes and we had a thick rope to play with.
I started looking through photos on the internet and there are really 3 different types of artistic photos with rope:

  • Bondage photos (not so interesting)
  • Photos where the rope was used to convey strength and show the muscles of the model
  • Photos where the rope was used to highlight the curves of the body by wrapping around the model

As bondage photos were not really the direction we wanted to go, and the model is not exceptionally muscular, we went for the latter option and set up the studio accordingly.
However, after I got the model in postion, I started to get feelings of slavery, and I decided to explore this theme a bit further as you can see in the pictures below.

I do not normally like taking photos against black because I feel it is a little too mainstream and so for some photos we added a fog machine and took some striking photos of the model throwing her beautiful hair around. I tried with different colours to see which one looks best, and I think that all three colours below work well and give completely different feelings to the photo.
