Natural Beauty

By HawksviewPhotography
This image was taken in MOAB during a glamour/nude workshop with Rolando Gomez, I saw this tree......fascinated by its natural curves and shape and this perfect branch over a cliff and i thought it would make a great picture, so I asked Eleya, my Model, if she would be game to "just chill" in the tree so i can take a few photos... She was game and I was amazed with the result, it came out significantly better than i anticipated. I did very little editing in Photoshop, basically just softened the skin a bit, Image was taken with a Canon 1D MKII 8.0 MP and Canon 70-200 IS II Lens.

Very interesting image. Makes you think. Wonder if the blank area under and behind your model could be a very pale blue/grey? The broken branch above her head seems like a trunk for the tree far off. Suggests miniature effect. The jeans seem sort of religious and very holy. She seems to have olive skin. Ease the brightness and thus add healthy colour to her skin. [Just thinking out loud], You are a better photog than I and the image IS very good. TG

She seems too pure to be something from an old Ivory Soap add. Wonderful lady well taken
The brown area below the model and the tree is actually rock formation,it is about 120ft below the tree and about 100ft away...intend to upload another image related in this series
