Luminesce: Light & the Female Form

$1,376

41

I’m creating a fine art book with images using the female form as the canvas. Colorful light patterns are projected onto the model’s skin to illuminate her curves and propel the viewer into a unique visual experience. The models and I chose images and light color patterns to project on their nude bodies. This collection contains more than 100 amazing images photographed in a dark professional studio as well as a behind-the-scenes video of the models in action.

About Me:

I’ve been capturing beautiful life moments since purchasing my first digital camera in 1999. Now, with Orchard Arts Photography, I create art that captures the sacred beauty of the female form and the timelessness of unique locations and moments in time. I find that the more we can combine these three elements, the greater the chance of creating art that transcends the visual. I am also a body-positive photographer, presenting the natural beauty of the women in all their shapes, sizes and styles.

UPDATE (Oct 29, 2018): Model Victoria's reaction to seeing her images in my Camera.  Her reaction is fun and amazing:

Models: 

Six gorgeous women of all different looks and styles are among the models selected for this project. One model was so excited for the shoot she decided to pose nude for the first time. We also created one set featuring two of the models together in their own unique shoot.

Risks and challenges

There are almost no risks with this project. All the raw images and video have been created and stored with triple backups. I have already printed a first test book to make sure results will be as amazing as we think they will be.
