Golden Dreams

Model is Irina.

This was lit with a big octodome right off the edge of the mat she was lying on, angled slightly downwards so it wouldn't hit the camera. Photographer was on a ladder shooting down.

Hi i asked you last year if i could do an oil painting of this stunning shot, and you said it was ok. I was just checking again, i think i might like to do it soon

It's OK to use my finished artworks as reference, but I don't like people to "improve" directly on my work in photoshop. My rules are here:

Your avatar is mesmerizing.

no one does this stuff like you do, mr ranum. a perfect pose...curves and lines combine for a sexy study in girl bod. i like it.

maybe its my state of mind at the moment, but i feel anguish and loss and hunger when i see this...if i was her i would be a breath away from pulling my hair and arching my back as a guttural sob escaped my throat
mjranum's avatar
Wow.. It was actually a very relaxed shot - the model was comfortable and warm and enjoying just stretching and rolling around in the fabric..
silver3286's avatar i said, state of mind. but a beautiful shot none the less. i love your pics more and more...i am a fan of cheesi-liciousness
mjranum's avatar
Can I use that as my tag-line?
"cheesilicious girly art by Marcus Ranum" has a great ring to it!
