Entry Description

This photo is part of a recent series of my figurative photos with fish. In this series, I paint the body with black paint and then highlight it with silver powder. This combination helps me eliminate certain details of the models' skins/forms and to highlight others useful for my expression. In terms of lighting I use a mix of beige ambient light and white spot lights which gives me close control over shadows and color gradients.
