Daily Deviation

Given 2011-02-25
More Boudoir 7 by *KarenMurdock is sultry, beautiful and intimate. A gorgeous display of skin ( Featured by DistortedSmile )
Usually I agree with everyone when they bitch about gratuitous nudity or objectifying female photos. However, how can I possibly disagree with this photo getting a DD? I can't. The angle is beautiful, and does not over-glorify the breasts. In fact my eyes are caught by the necklace, and angle of the body, and those out of focus legs just as much as the lovely tits there. Beautiful female form, lovely pose and angle... I really like that bra, it looks pretty. The rumpled sheets under you look quite coquettish! I feel the need for more photos like these to remind everyone that good erotica still exists.

I was never too fond of boudoir photography. Mostly because of low-q works which were proudly labelled by their creators as belonging to that jenre.

But now, I suppose, I'm gonna be totally in love with this kind of photoART because this work shows how technically perfect boudoir photography can be.

Though the sujet itself is not at all original, this wonderful creation still stands out boldly among the others. To my mind there are more than enough objective reasons for that.

First, the lighting is most adorable, it places just right amount of emphasis on the relief and the beautiful lines of the model's body, leaving the shadows mild and soft.

Second, the DOF adds to overall atmosphere of intimacy and sensualyty, creating exellent mood!

Third, colors are marvellous! Skin tones are both natural-looking and pleasant. Many photographers know how often you have to choose between these two characteristics, but this work demonstrates how they can be combined in a masterly fashion.

To finish, I would only like to say Bravo and Bis to the author!

I love the depth of field on this photo, the sharpness of the image on the models chest lends a striking clarity to the deviation. Really nice piece :)
