I managed to take part in the DoA Anniversary Bare Minium Contest – see here.
I really liked the theme and I immediately got an inspiration what I could do. Of course I did not win, but that is fine since I had a lot of fun shooting and editing.
Any doll shown in your photo must be nude. They may have (but are not required to have) a face-up, body blushing, tattoos and /or non removable piercings, eyes and a wig, but they may not be adorned with any other items such as drapery, clothing, shoes, spectacles, removable jewelry or other accessories worn on the body
Since Marielle got her whole body blushed I really loved the idea to show her new naked glory. I was really inspired by Hamlet written by Shakespeare. To be exact of Ophelia.
Ophelia dies a tragic death in the book by drowning, but she became some kind of deathly Beauty inspiration for different artist. For Example “Ophelia” by John Everett Millais. I really wanted to do something similar and made some quick concept art based on the painting.
I got everything I had at home to create a little scene on our roof terrace. Some big gems and crystals, flowers and grass, cups to hold everything afloat…
Everything put together in a big pink box and there it was…my little water scene. I really liked how it looked and I hoped in the pictures you were not able to see the green foil or the pink box. Gladly it worked really well and I was able to shoot quite some pictures and got in the end 6 I really liked.
And here they are – the 6 I really liked. The first one is the one I decided to use for the contest and I really love the all pictures.
Now I think I would use another one of the bunch. But in the end it doesn’t matter anymore. I really like the concept and I am proud that I did the whole preparation. Sadly I can not keep the scene, but I really loved the whole set up.
