Challenge: Nude V (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
Date: Sep 24, 2009
Galleries: Portraiture, Nude

Yes this is a SP lol. All done pretty much the last minute. Conceived, setup, shot and edited in the last hour before rollover which I think I uploaded 10min before the deadline. When shooting it was a real PITA setting the timer, running around in the dark trying to pose and hold it till the shutter went off...

--------------------------------------

Thanks to all the commenter's, Ive always wanted to try a low key shot like this but not on myself but it was a real lesson and thanks to 21_F.gif Judi for the inspiration ;)

Hands down the best of the best. This should have gotten the blue. Bravo.

I thought this should have done better.

By the way, you can get an IR remote for your camera for about $30 Canadian, which also has a 2 second delay feature. That would cut down on the rush in the dark ;-)

Very dramatic. Interesting that the eyes don't follow the rule of thirds, yet this picture works. The exception that proves the rule.

Absolutely love the subtleness of the nude, yet the highlights appear like abstract lines. LOVE this in black and white! Just goes to show...less is more! I predict this will do well!!
