Slice of Red

Extreme lighting can be good or very, very bad, but when it’s good, you get something like this.

This was done in the studio with one very bright light colored with a red gel. That means you only capture the parts of the body that find the light, but the resulting shapes can be extraordinary. I like how this shape tapers almost to a point top and bottom with just enough curve.

Red adds drama to the composition. The little edge of back on the far side also adds interest, as do the strands of hair.

This one is best about 7×10″ approximately with wide white mat and black frame. It can be bigger and also works as a small, intimate piece. It glows when placed near a lamp or light. I’d suggest bedroom, near the reading light. In series of 25 numbered prints.
