Silver by sifu

Nope, she wasn't painted silver for this, effect achieved with some playing in photoshop. Basicly I painted the image of her over the top of herself, merged the layers and greyscaled the result. Somewhat time consuming but a pretty funky result

This looks glareful, it really highlights her very well! I don't normally comment on the people are, but I have to saym this is fantastic!

The highlights as well as the moderate chromatic you gave it really makes it look real yet metallic and silver! The pose is magnificent, you should thank the model for making such a conveyant pose! And thank you for the effect you put into it! Lovely! :clap:

I love the picture; she does look very strong and sensual. And the silver effect is awesome, though I can't help but feel that silver effect is somewhat muted by the lack of any other color in the picture. With a casual glance, it looks like a black & white photo. Regardless, it's a great picture, as so many of yours are and what I find the most eye-catching upon closer inspection is what looks like a very slight radiance about the edges and curves of the model. Perhaps that makes it more beautiful: the transitive perception from black & white to silver glow.

Yeah, it is "just" a black & white photo. The silver effect and the effect you are talking about (the halos) are both side effects of the photoshop technique I used to "paint" in the lighting (kinda - it's hard to explain) in this pic

Cheers!

why would you post a picture of a photoshopped naked girl? and also did you have her consent?

Why would I post a picture of a photoshopped girl wearing clothes? Why would I post a shot of a non-photoshopped girl wearing clothes? (or nude?) Why would I post a shot of a tree? Or a river? Or a snowboarder?

The answer is the same in each case.

Why do you seem to think the model being nude (or photoshopped?) somehow makes it NOT worth being posted?

And as to the second part...I get full model releases for all of my work from the models, so yes, they are all aware their shots will be published.

Sorry for the slow reply. To be honest I don't "over think" my art at all. I don't really have reasons for making any of the photos I make beyond the fact that I find them beautiful. I quite liked this shot back when I took it and so I posted it. No reasons beyond that. *shrugs*

sifu Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2011  Professional Photographer
Neither do I...that's why all the women in my photos are in strong, confident, commanding positions. Does this girl look like she is subjected? Like she is bending to another's will? Being put down?

I certainly don't think so.

Theres nothing inherently bad, evil, immoral or whatever about the human body, ANY part of the human body, theres nothing more inherently bad about a vagina than there is about a finger or a leaf or a twig. The body is the most natural thing in the world, it's mainly just the religious nuts throughout the centuries that have twisted our views on something so beautiful and natural to make (many of) us perceive it to be something dirty, damaging or offensive.

A child can play a computer game where they rip the heads off people, shoot police and so all sorts of incredibly violent things and most of us don't bat an eye - yet let that same child see some people naked and listen to the outcry. The human body in it's natural form has been turned into something offensive and damaging (so we think)....what a strange mindset we've adopted...
