SLIDER

project: exPOSEd



I never usually do a shoot, edit and share my work within the same day. It usually takes me around two weeks to do everything but I am so excited to share this body of work with you all!

I originally came across an image of Kate Moss (similar to this) by the fantastic Jeurgen Teller. I have always wanted to photograph nudity but in a way that appreciates the beauty of the female body. I want my work to be tasteful and not tacky or seedy.

Today me and my friend headed to a forest and did an hour of test shooting. As the project is a digital experimentation assignment; it means I have to try out different digital techniques i.e layering, curves, re-touching (air brushing, brightening eyes etc) and video. I know the whole idea of manipulating imagery is contradicting the context of a natural female body, but as it's the middle of February, I had no choice but to airbrush out my model's goosebumps!


Please let me know what you think in the comments below and give it a favourite on flickr (click the STAR above the photo) if you're feeling generous. As always, your comments on my uni work will be print screened and put into my work journal book :-)


XO love, Ashleigh x

  1. These are incredible Ashleigh. I know how difficult shooting with friends can be and you nailed it on the head, I thought she was a model before I even read your post.

  6. I take photography at a level and I think that nudity is one of the hardest photoshoots you can do mainly because as you said the shoot needs to be tasteful not tacky or seedy haha I think your photographs are stunning though and you definitely captured the beauty of the female body :)

  10. This is lovely, I adored the digital editing modules at uni as it was so different for me (I normally refuse to edit photos!) x
