Presents “Sexxxuelle Light”
Nude and Erotic Portraiture in Natural Light
Photography literally means the “recording of light”. Therefore, every aspect of photography begins and ends with the light. In photography, the softest and most beautiful light that we as artists can work with, manipulate, bounce, bend, and create with is natural light; the sun.
Nude portraiture in of itself is one of the most powerful artistic expressions to be created. Nude portraiture features models with uncanny bravery, with the ability to shed their inhibitions for the creation of art. Nude portraiture has the essence of sincerity with its natural beauty. This collection will feature natural nude women portraiture coupled with natural light to create an aesthetic of oneness with intimacy itself.
This post will feature some of the most gorgeous examples of nude portraiture and erotic photography captured by the greatest photographers in the world, using natural light as the main or featured light of their subjects. Please take note on how these artists use the softness of natural light to make the eroticism of the subjects come alive while still maintaining a soft and sensual aura.
I am a woman, so I thought I would start this collection off with one of my favorite female photographers in the world, Julia Skalozub from Prague. This artwork entitled “Sorceress” featuring the model Tatyana, is flat out perfection. The soft edges, the depth of field, Tatyana’s smoldering sexuality and and hint of darkness under those flowing in the wind black tresses of hers, titillates me. I am not suggesting that selective coloring was used in this image, however, one of the most eye catching aspects of this image besides Tatyana’s huge natural breasts, are the sharp red colors of the apples and the muted tones everywhere else within the image. I think Julia Skalozub did an outstanding job with this artistic piece.
Powerful… this nude portrait by photography artist Vadym Timashov is just so damn powerful! I am already aware that a large amount of you professional photographers are going to see this image in a slightly negative light( no pun intended) because the models are not smiling or emoting in any way. However, if you were to see more of Vadym Timashov’s works of art, you will find that almost none of the images have a the nude subjects smiling or emoting heavily. I love this! It is different. The women in his images don’t seem cold or aloof, they come across to me as strong, powerful and in control. It gives his fine art pieces a humongous aura of “Fashion Editorial-esque” styling within the entire Fine Art Nude composition of his artwork.
This is one of those rare artistic nudes by Vadim Lyachikov which captures the eye of the professional photographer and the attention of the viewer. This nude portrait tells a story somewhere between melancholy and reflection where her natural beauty and curves coupled with the natural light, form a semi erotic amalgamation of Fine Art and Editorial styled photography. A part of me wants to hug her until she feels better, simultaneously, another part of me desires to make mad passionate love with her until she feels better.
Really brilliant work by this artist!
