Seby - Tarzan--sitting on tree by TriggerArtist Seby - Tarzan--sitting on tree by TriggerArtist
Wish they had a "Artistic Concept" category (vs. just Artistic Nude, etc.).

Sebastian and I have been wanting to do this Tarzan shoot foreeeever. Finally had a Monday where all 3 of us (Seby, me, and Maryam--makeupartist) were free and got to shoot right before sunset. Spent about 15min. in the thrift store picked up 3 shirts (linen material, ended up only using 2 shirts) and the necklace (was like $2 I think?). Maryam ripped one of the shirts up on the way to meet him and I ripped the other one while she was doing his hair/makeup. I loved his expression in this. Many more from this series to come, but this was the first to come out of the bunch.

This is one of the few hoots where I can honestly say the images came out exactly as I hoped they would. I knew he'd play the Tarzan role well!!

Location - Dixon Azalea Park/Downtown Orlando, FL (grew up about 2min. down the street from this tree, always loved how it bowed along the ground. Very surprised the heavy susended branches survived the 3 hurricanes last year)

Wish I could shoot them more often, but the majority of stronger models are female unfortunately. I actually get more nervous working with guys just because the range of poses is a bit more limiting and they're usually quite stiff/unartistic in their poses.

Saoih Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2006
That's unfortunate. I've seen that a lot with some of the folks on this site who photograph male models. I guess it's just a matter of finding guys that know their bodies better, and have a better understanding of what posing is and the many different ways the body can move regardless of gender. I think women have a much more innate knowledge of their bodies. Men are just expected to stand there and look tough in most aspects of society :P.

It does feel like steel, haha. Had to do the baby oil gel one time (his suggestion, but of course I didn't mind, lol).

Very nice guy, easy to work with, and takes direction well.

Wow.

The shot came out great. Imagine, a $4 thift store purchase turns into a million dollar shot...

Great exposure... Can't wait to see what else comes from this shoot...

Oh, BTW... It's becoming more and more obvious that your circle of friends includes the more "beautiful" people in life... :lol:

HAHA

The more beautiful people? That's funny. We just work together, I don't always hang out with them. Sometimes we go out to the clubs; but I generally try to keep business business. Now my best friend, on the other hand, happens to be the makeup artist/stylist for 90% of my current portfolio. So that's pretty much the only friend/business line that's been crossed.

Re: the thrift store-- YEAAAAH! I love thrift stores! I'm gonna go back to that one where I got those shirts/necklace. Everything was soooo inexpensive. You can get some really antique-y jewelry and stuff! We were in and out in under 15min.

That was a VERY busy day!! Photo shoot at 11-actor, images soon to come (look for the name Junior)/thrift store/pickup runway music from producer, get lunch, pickup Seby (he was an hour away too)/shoot downtown with him/shoot in studio/dinner/drop him off. I put 240 miles on my car the previous day and that day combined...

Love his pose. I can see from this that he's a good model :)
I think the colours are a bit dull though, probably because of the time the photo was taken? They're a bit grey :/

And I can just imagine the amount of comments about his body lol =P

TriggerArtist Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2005
haha true! (on the comments)

Might wanna try viewing it on another screen. That's the first time I've heard that comment...On most of the screens I've viewed it on it's very blue with some underlying greens.

Just a thought. Always be sure to calibrate your monitor ever-so-often :-). (I forget every once in a while too...)

Okay yeah.. it looks a bit better now. I still think that compared to you it looks not that interesting.. the colours, I mean. Perhaps because it is a bit more blue and green than red ;)

TriggerArtist Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2005
yeah. Usually my tones have a good bit of red in them (comfort zone for skin tones) but I liked the moodines the blue helped create :-)

Looks great. I've never photographed a hunky guy in this kind of way - mainly headshots for actors. Always wondered how to pose guys. It's got to be very different to posing a girl. . . This has worked really well.
Reply
:icontriggerartist:
TriggerArtist Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2005
Yes, posing male models is very different. Luckily, Seby knows how to pose and pose pretty well. Love guys that know how to do their own thing. Sometimes, with actors, have them do some dialogue. They like to use their hands sometimes, which helps make interesting shots. I tend to stick with headshots if they dunno what to do and I have no poses that suit their look (or if I'm just plain out uninspired, haha). Check out fashion magazines and muscle magazines for a couple ideas. Course with the later, you need to have a ripped male model, haha. Oh well...

wildplaces Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2005
Yes, I sort of know the deal. . . I guess it might be easier for you. I can imagine a guy posing for a girl more than a guy posing for another guy. . . It's just not something I've had much opportunity to do.
