2 Models by Candlelight

Digital original
I arrived in Fredericton, New Brunswick, late this afternoon, visiting to do a presentation and demonstration of Fine Art Nude photography to the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. Kyla, who I was staying with while in town, had modeled previously, and had introduced my work to a friend, M_ who specifically asked about working with me. As a first session, we photographed by candle light, which often has a very comfortable, intimate feel, which is perfect for first sessions.

After a couple of images of M_ on her own, Kayla joined in the session. This permitted some very interesting compositions to be made, playing one figure off against the other, and creating some very engaging images. Part of the pleasure of working with candles is being able to include the light-source in the image; in this case, the tea-light was balanced one model’s belly, lighting her and the model behind her in a most unusual way.
