Osmyn Oree 2012
This a perfect example of the “perfect mistake” or “happy accident” as i like to call it :) When i first looked at this photograph i was so overwhelmed with anger i had to get other peoples opinion of what they thought of the flare in the image. After getting second opinions and staring at the image, i actually love it. The flare almost brings attention to the models already captivating face and i like that aspect of the photograph. I would’ve probably tossed this image out and wouldn’t have even bothered to edit it but i thought why the hell not and just went with it. Honestly, I think what does it for me in the image are her eyes and the detail of the ring in the image. Those small details are always something the models and i enjoy seeing within my photographs, and we often find them the most interesting parts rather then them being in the photograph. Honestly, I feel like my artistic nude photograph has become less about nude and more about the person and the little things around them. Those minute detail that reveal something about the sitter to the viewer and gives them that little insight into the lives of the people i photograph. It’s really the best part about what I do and is one my main driving forces in photography. Getting to know the people in front of the camera is an important part of photographing them and getting to understand them through imagery.
