We had only just come back from our Tasmania trip and we were both back in the studio, Moth joined me for a rare in-studio shoot. This week was a Fine Art Nude shoot with Jayde Helena. I had some ideas for a few artistically styled nude images, almost Brooke Shaden in nature, but I also wanted to try some classic Old Style Masters (showed last week).
It is actually quite difficult working with this format, it is a fine line drawn between, artistic, nude, and erotica. We crossed a few lines (just) and I found I still prefer the Fine Art stylings, in other words, I prefer to have implied nude more often than not hiding more than showing, sounds weird right? Jayde’s normal style is more along the lines of erotica and fetish, something I personally am not a huge fan of and I am honestly not sure HOW to best capture it on camera.
Still, we had a fun afternoon, we played around with a few loose concepts involving a poker scene, throwing around lots of fake gold coins! We also brought in some masks and capes, dry ice, smoke machines and creative lighting.
Adore the Carnival Masks images, such fun and so, so creepy!
