My brain can’t help but wonder what photographers tell their models in preparation for a pose, especially a surrealist one. "OK, now turn over and lie the same way; I’m going to put your head on backwards. Oh, yes, and as soon as we’re done it’s on to the placenta shoot."
I quite like these pics by Brooke Shaden. She understands that simplicity and subtlety are keys to a dramatic effect. Oh, and kick-ass technique.
By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
