Still doing finish work on the raw digital files from the shoot with Reese Rideout. This one stood out as I worked on it today. I like the sharp contrast. I like the way Reese seems to be coming out of the image at you. And of course what's not to like about Reese's muscle definition.

The majority of the images I capture in a shoot tend to be full body images -- so much so that I have to discipline myself to move around the model and start capturing different angles or smaller slices of the body.
This image is a small section of Reese's body, but not captured by moving closer. In this case I simply croped the image to highlight the strongest part of the his physique in this position -- his tricep.

This is one of a series of images that resulted from having Reese work through martial arts exercises. I have used this technique with several models over the years as a way to create fluid, graceful positions that are not standard bodybuilding poses.

This image is from a photo shoot this morning with model Reese Rideout. I think the unusual, off center, close cropped body makes it more visually interesting than the usual center or one third composition.
Kudos to Reese and the fabulous shape he was in today.
I'll be sharing more images from the shoot in the next few days.
