For my challenge this month I wanted to do some fine art style nude yoga photos. I'd done yoga. I'd done plenty of nudes. I had not done a combination of the two.
The challenge for me was to see if I could properly light the shoot so that the muscles of the body were the focus. Yoga does some amazing things our muscles and I really wanted to highlight that with this shoot. This was an attempt to focus on fitness, musculature, and the body itself as a work of art.
Luckily Leigh, who happens to be an athletic yogi, volunteered for the shoot. She was the perfect model to have for this and I cannot thank her enough. To see more of Leigh, please give her a follow on Instagram. She's a studio manager at Lifetime Athletic, so if you live in the South Jersey area stop by and check out one of her classes.
This is hopefully part one of a two part challenge. If all works out I intend on doing a second shoot with a new model, using silhouettes to focus on the shapes the body can create. Make sure to subscribe to my blog and stay tuned!
