I was working on a different photo of the Freya skin from *Birth* for Skin Fair 2017 and as I often do, I asked for an opinion. Since my sis, crankygit was online, I asked her. She is always brutally honest in her feedback and I trust her implicitly. So, when she told me, “sis, you can do better,” I stopped right where I was. I popped over to see her and she whisked me into her house, tossed some chain link fencing behind me and within moments, she showed me this…
I hopped off the pose stand and while just hanging there in awe, I clicked off another shot. Different. Nice. It shows off the skin, which is absolutely stunning, and also a bit of mood. I have found that I tend to change up my style when I am doing photos for Skin Fair – straight shots instead of my usual style. I hope this one does the skin justice while allowing me to be true to who I am as a photographer.
The contouring of Freya is beautifully done and the eyes are just wow! So sleepy-sultry-sexy. I didn’t wear any other cosmetics; what you see are the natural eyes and lips that come with the skin. Of course, *Birth* has some wonderful cosmetics that I will try out with this skin, but for this shot, I wanted her to be just as she comes: beautiful and unadorned.
Cranky posted another version of her shot on her Flickr stream. Go see it here. I insist.
Two sisters. Two views.
