Blue Field

Just a quick image for today.  This was the setup shot for one of the Mirage photographs (more later), but it has a great abstract quality to it.  It reminds me of a painted field of stars.  But maybe I’ve been reading too much about Van Gogh.

Mirage 22- abstract art nude photography in sheet metal.

There are some photos that you know will be good when you take them, and there are ones that turn out better than expected.  But then there are images like this one- ones that take your breath away when they come up on the screen.  This is where the experiments in surface alteration all came together.  The combination of light, texture and gesture in this image all combine into something really special.  I can’t wait to see how this one prints!

Mirage 21- from a series of abstract art nudes.

My experiments with surface alterations to the metal plates continues!  I brought out some of the surface markings by pushing the contrast here and I think it works well with the flow of the model’s body.  It gives the image a feeling of movement and flow.

Mirage 20: from a series of abstract art nudes.

I’ve continued to work with the plate surfaces lately.  The streaks and smudges on the copper mirror surface give this a painterly effect.  The degree of the effect changes depending on whether the focus point is on the surface of the plate or the image reflected within.
