Porcelain V by missbritneyrae
The title is very apt and with the title Porcelin and your beautifully proportioned curves it makes me think of the classic wedgewood ceramics. The almost monochromatic apperance of the majority of the shot brings the focus straight up to the top of the photograph and brings the focus to the face.

The make up is excellent and brings to mind probably the greatest era of the pin up art style the 50's. The beautifully full lips that have such a huge impact. the amazingly teased eye lashes framing the doeful look and toped off with the beautifully arched eyebrows.

The use of the patterened wallpaper as a background is a well though out idea that has been well executed and the burnout on the pattern helps project the face/head area forward to add to its promience in the icture. All in all a great representation of what is probably one of the true American art styles, the Classic Pin up.
Bustier by Abigtreehugger
Bustier
this is a leather open back Bustier that I made, sorry about the poor picture quality I used my phone to take the picture. It is fully lined and made of 1/16 th of an inch thick leather, this is not heavy enough to hold its own shape and has light boneing in the front to help keep the shape. If you use leather that is an 1/8 th of an inch thick it will hold its own shape and needs no boneing. This was the only example of my leather work I could find, I haven't done any in a good while. A Wasp Cinch is very simple to make and only takes five panels to make, if you make it with 1/8 thick leather you will need a leather punch to punch the holes to lace the panels together rather than sewing them together.

Well where do you start, Sophia is a beautiful model and I think the fact that she is a model and a very proffessional model is important because in this shot it is very unposed, almost as though she was caught of guard. Because it is a shot where she appears to have been caught off guard it is very relaxed.

The three distinct bands, the sky in the background, the foilage directly behind Sophia and the rubble in the foreground give a great perspective to the shot and give a great projection to Sophia's figure as it cuts across all three bands. The natural lighting brings a great balance to the image giving a great balance too the colour, shadows and halftones.

Overall I think it is my favourite from the shoot simply because it is one of those shots where the models guard is down and I think they make excellent shots. I do love documentary style photography and because Sophia was probably caught off gaurd the shot has that documentary style feel to it.
For those interested in a 5K points giveaway being hosted by :iconcain11: here is the link www.deviantart.com/journal/Giv… and good luck.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! :blowkiss: :tighthug:
