Moody Nudes, Life Created
It Isn’t Always About Your Photographic Skills
Great photographers produce images with great impact, often with attention grabbing moods that originated from real life experiences of the model or the photographer and sometimes both. These moods in a photograph are often a combination of the subject’s actual feelings at the time of capture, the photographic passion felt and the photographer’s own life’s experiences.
Life's own experiences can help create moods, as in this photo of Eleya.
Often, in my photography, it’s not uncommon for me to project my moods in the actual photograph I capture of my subject in combination with the scene, setting and the image capture technique. For example, if I’m having a bad day, or a moody day, like that of a relationship issue with my significant other, I might create that dark aura during the shoot through warm lighting, deep shadows, specific clothes selection for my subject, the actual pose in combination of the words I convey to my subject during direction of the shoot. It’s all of these actions or a combination of them that will trigger various looks from my subject and allow me to capture the “feel” of the photo.
