One of my new clients in Florida reached out asking about the nudes I have been drawing. She wanted one of her own with a figure who had floral tattoos all over much like the other works I have been creating.
None of the models were appealing to her for what she has envisioned. She described a model who looked just like me so I took it upon myself to use myself as the model for her piece. She is thrilled!
This experience has taught me so much already. One, being my models have become much more confident in modeling nude for me now that I too have done it. And two, that I can think like the model to improve my photography skills for these shoots.
It is a vulnerable place to be, sitting nude for someone with a camera in front of them. It can make you feel self conscious when inexperienced.
New works in progress of this piece will be posted soon!!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
