photoblog image A man and his woman

A man and his woman

I decided to put this up today because I was told that I descriminate on my blog against male models :) So here you go ladies here is a male model from my archives. What does this shot say to you, considering it is a cool guy and a ladies hand reaching for his chest or heart.

The lighting could use some work but its a very nice image.
Dotun Ayodeji: lol, Stan the lighting is exactly what I was going for. I usually shoot my portraits like this and I agree it's not everyones taste. Even lighting for me is flat and gone with the old, I do this only when I am doing beauty shots or maybe a kids shoot. Not sure if you are familiar with studio ligthing techniques, but my lighting here is a slight variation of Rembrandt Lighting. My subjects was lit from the left side and a reflector was used to kick in just a bit of light to on the right side. I find that when I shoot like this, it gives your portraits more dimension than if I shot this with a narrow, butterfly or broad lighting. Keep visiting I have some images lined up with some dramatic lighting.
Amazing shot. I'm actually quite pleased with the lighting, but what do I know? smile
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Josef, you know plenty.

LOL at Etomi! smile

A woman with no face makes me think she's a tigress! And he's acting so nonchalant...so suave and debonair! I think you probably nailed it, Dotun.
Dotun Ayodeji: thanks Ginnie.

Whose the person who can't count. Most of your brides are accompanied by grooms. And for the rest what is wrong with female models *frown*

Excellent picture of another guy meeting Achilles Heel smile Going for his heart - Portia is not arguing his case I believe tongue
Dotun Ayodeji: lol..Louis you are too much smile

He looks remarkably composed for someone about to be devouredsmile I think the light might be a bit strong, but it is certainly an attention grabbing shot. Good work, as always!
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Martin, but exactly what makes the light too strong? I don't see any blown highlights in this shot, going a stop over will deepen the shadows.
Creative and well spotted : I like !

Very interesting lighting, I just wish we could see a bit more of the left eye. Also without the woman's face, the arms almost seem to be a sexual beast trying to escape from inside him. As if his thoughts were about to devour him while he attempts to play cool.

Coool!! smile
Cool, love the composition, not 100% feeling the lighting, I feel this would be a stronger image in B&W or sepia, I know this is what you wanted so good for you :d

Very strong image.
Works for me, Dotun. Your lighting accentuates his in-your-face bravado...or, is it cock-sure-ness, as in "Whose body has this woman got her hands on anyway"!
Best of all is the wonderful crumpled right coat sleeve.
