I think I'll write my comments here rather than an actual critique. I love this piece! What's most amazing about this particular piece is it's FORM. Viewing from a distance (thumbnail view) it looks although there is only one person (the male figure) which is more dominant as compared to the 2 female figures.. the lighting/shadow is absolutely superb..
I actually thought this was an abstract manipulation of Man & Zebra.. taking a closer look it really stunned me for a few seconds. WOW, there's 3 people. Models are completely naked, yet they are covered with the casting of the light.
The shadow casting in the background does not lose any of its importance, still being able to distinctly relate to the models without taking away any attention from the focal point (models)
FORM / LIGHTING / COMPOSITION = 110% I've never seen anything like this before, so this idea is absolutely NEW to me. I'm sure it would have the same impact to a lot of people when seen for the first time.
Even though this is a still image, there's a certain movement & life to it! Breathe taking and mind blowing.
Hey--it is so flattering that my image would inspire this brief essay. Thanks so much. A lot of people think the shadows in an image like this are "mistakes" or a sign of laziness, but realy, in this one it works to a purpose...
And movement was the most exciting thing about working with the dancers.
You may enjoy two of the little movies from two of the shoots you like: Ballet Shoot--Intersections: [link]
It's one thing looking @ a still image and seeing 'life' and 'movement' but watching that video was the next level! Both videos were very nice to look at, great song selection. You've got an artistic view/style I really like it. Have you thought about exhibiting your work? This form of art is just breathe taking and so surreal in many sense and beautiful.
Not only have you related it back to "truth" (Buddhism) but you've also chosen the right models to perform/photograph. The Ballet video was absolutely ASTONISHING! The video editing for both videos .... wow, nothing much i can say but "wow"...
Abstract / surreal / projection style, lovely! really, really nice! i can't wait to see more... What's best about your work is that even when you split it into sections and create a pattern from it, it creates a whole new style.
Judging from all your work and the video you've created, you are most likely a person of passion and love.. an appreciator of life and its natural wonders. Sounds a lil corny, but it reflects a lot on your style of art. I can't continue to explain how nice it is to look at your work. Once again, keep up the greatness.
rass over rays. hard to tell who is accompanied by/with whom. i like how the middle of the projected rays is positioned on her back, just where the belly button would be, the central point of the human body. this one is so full of emotions, and the beauty of the whole world and existence seems to be in there.
