Models are wonderous things, they can stand in front of a white background, and with nothing more than their body make beautiful shapes. I admire photographers that can create such wonderful lighting that all their images need is a nude model and the light she is bathed in. Sadly my lighting skills are rather less advanced, so I try to give the model something to work with. This can be a prop in a studio or an item on location which is part of the environment.
We have in our conservatory a replica Le Corbusier LC4 Chaise Longue (Yes, I had to look it up, but you’ll recognise it when you see it!), which I always thought would make a good prop in a studio because of it’s super shape, and when my wife changed her car to an estate car I now had the opportunity to transport it to a studio. Each model will use a prop in a different way, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. On this occasion I was working with the lovely Cassie Jade, who as well as having a timeless classic beauty and figure, can do the most amazing bendy poses.
So here’s a few images of the wonderfully versatile model making the most of the prop:
Thank you Cassie Jade, and I look forward to our next shoot which is very shortly.
