New Model – Guianna

29 Sep

I am currently in the process of finishing up some pieces for a juried art show, and my concept involved nudity. It was difficult finding models to pose nude, as is expected, so one night I was at Cafe Bohemia to see some local music and I found her: Guianna Brantley. She has the most beautiful skin, a big gorgeous head of kinky afro hair, and the biggest whitest smile I’ve ever seen. And she was super excited to do the shoot and wanted to get started immediately. So I called up trusty little Blackbird and we arranged a last-minute shoot in an awesome run down old building.

Blackbird did makeup and styled the whole shoot. For the nudes, we didn’t need much styling, but below are some photos with Blackbird’s designs. I had a floor lamp and one modeling lamp. And a diffuser. That’s it. We made use of a really dark, stuffy closet to do all these shots. We were sweating profusely because there was no air conditioning – or air flow at all for that matter, but this place is a photographer’s dream. Any artist’s dream! So many cool old things and places to explore.
