modesty is my candle. but what the heck!
of course with permission.

2 lights/ 3'x4' box 95 degrees left and 8" round screened 85 degrees right.
tried some frontal fill. the result was marginal and not worth the floor clutter.
i wanted a less vignette but my cropping position took me off the background. when running solo what can you expect?
other than some dodge & burn, crop, and color conversion limited in the processing.
6 hours in time. the role playing was exhausting. i might have got my fill of it.
recommended...it could be the last.

some try to read to much into it. there really is no meaning just a naked person holding a balloon like many others whether it be adults trying to fly or some cute kid just having fun. this is simply working with light, form, and space nothing less and nothing more. I thank those who like it as much as those who don't. this is what i do here.

As disturbing as I find this photo, I can't help but rate it high. Good work

a bit smooth, should have a bit more hair on the old chest, good shot though well done.

Hm? 6 for the quality of the studio shot, the creative light, and the effort made to achieve it, though it is a tad underexposed (could have been corrected with highlight adjustments in post). I am confused by just about everything else, including the title.
