A Portrait Workshop (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital infrared original
I seldom share my "traditional" portraiture online (meaning portraits of people clothed); I feel these are too "personal" to share in such a public form...where fine art Nude portraits are so much about the process of viewing the Nude that it is only by sharing them publicly that they really start to work.

The images are not personal portraits; K_ was posing for a portrait session at a weekend workshop I was participating in; I was between modules, so had time to pick up a camera and take some photos.

Because of the infrared camera's rendition of K_'s skin, I think these images almost look like mannequin photos, as opposed to photos of a real person...there is a magic realism to them which would be lacking in colour.
