The amazing Zinn.

This was lit with a single large octodome. You can tell there's no backdrop light because of the way she blends into the greys instead of popping off them. Post-work consists of a soft light layer, very mild black flare layer, and mono conversion in channel mixer.

So were you the first to shoot with Zinn, or Scott? She's an amazing model, either way.

Our mutual friend Olaf shot with her first. Then me, then Scott.

Zinn is a stunner.

Yeah, she has an incredibly beautiful, expressive face. Obviously, the rest of her is nice, too, but that's what I notice most about her. Really a great model!

See, this is real nude art. It has an interesting lighting, a very nice pose, and a meaning behind it; it has artistic value beyond the attractiveness of the subject.

Very nice work with this, I very much like the symmetry, the simple gradient, her hair partially hiding her face, and how she seems to blend in.

Very nice shot. :)

Thank you! I'm not sure about whether I put any meaning into this shot, but I'm glad you found some! :)

It's mainly in her expression, a soft, almost sleeping look, with her heart-shaped hands right in front of her lips it could mean any number of things.
