Indeed!  All been said... excellent work.

I'd add, "Looking forward to seeing more" but with nudes that might be misconstrued.  Wink

Michael Ezra's nudes are always elegant and classy, in a league with Edward Weston's.

Hi,

I almost agree, but I feel that Michael is in a league of his own.

Best regards
Erik

I agree with that, too. But I feel that Edward and Michael each has produced the most sophisticated and classy nudes of their own time. Edward's were the best of the whole twentieth century, and Michael's certainly have a lock on the twenty-first, IMHO.

Made my morning BC; now I can go and put in my daily eye-drops a happier man! As I then have to lie with my head back and eyes closed for ten minutes, it gives me better food for thought for those ten minutes than prosaic matters such as what the lunch choices will turn out to be...

It also proves that one is sometimes just as good company as two - if not more so. I'd have stopped at just below the pants - not mad about the leg shape, but maybe you were selling shoes?

Lovely shot, Kirk, and I wonder if anyone noticed just how vital the little clump of weed at the bottom left? Take it away and the entire balance is screwed. On such tiny things depend our visual lives!

Thanks Michael,

All real, just a very, very good hairdresser.  Not the best hair artist I've used but 99% as good, but the best I've worked with got married, adopted a kid, opened a salon and lives a real life.

To do fake hair is costly.   I can be done, extensions work if they're expensive like 5 grand, wigs can work if they're also 5 grand and cut to the talent, but you have to really want that look and stills are much less forgiving than motion imagery.

This is the best hair artist I've ever worked with:





I won't show you the worst.

James, I am curious, on the last image - the design is clearly intricate and requires a skill, but how much "stray hair Photoshopping" could one expect from the "best" hairdresser?
Is this mostly handled in post or on the live model?

All of the hair designs require a skill.  Actually the bottom less than the top.

This is one of the hardest, because it looks simple, but simple is hard.



post work on hair should be minimal.  If it's a lot you blew it.

The last image actually doesn't have a lot of work, some on the garment, obviously some on the direction of the vignette and the coloration, very, very little on the face.

The makeup is either directed or done by my partner who is our producer but a tremendous makeup artist. She even developed her own base to match the lighting for a specific glow.

Nobody can make a face glow like Ann.

The top image I posted earlier has virtually nothing on the hair, or than cleaning up some stray hairs and lightly filling in one spot.

It actually has only a few spot clean ups on the face, though the legs needed some work because of veins that happens sometimes depending on talent.
