Art Model Twin

Sample, unedited photo by Raku Photography, April 2012.

Yesterday was a long and successful modeling day spent with Keira. I think it's cool that we are basically model twins - similar hair, body shape/size. It can definitely create interesting fine art nudes, and (hopefully) interesting conceptual work. I had the most fun shoot in the afternoon with Keira and photographer Warren, who wanted to work on some interesting ideas with us. I can't wait to see photos...and share them, of course. As predicted, I felt less shy modeling with Keira yesterday. I think that trend will continue as I learn better how to interact when modeling with another model. It's much different from modeling by yourself. I  felt as if I was sort of waiting to see what Keira did with her pose, and then tried to do something that fit with her pose or mirrored it. I guess I felt that I was following her lead a little, which makes sense to me as I am the less experienced model. But I was pleased and surprised to hear Keira tell me she thought I was experienced :]

Figure drawing modeling, finding nude photos of myself on the Internet

Back into modeling.

I had my first life modeling session since...a long time ago. I could tell it'd been a while because my muscles were definitely straining more than usual and I had a bit of soreness after for the next day. All is better, though. I had a really good first modeling sesh. I was in a really good mood to start out with, and as always Omar played awesome music so I remained in a good mood, and had all sorts of crazy visions while I posed and tried to stay still.
It's interesting to me that by trying to stay still I become more aware of my body. I begin to notice every tiny movement and I can feel all my muscles in a way that I don't normally. It's a hyper-awareness that I've grown fond of. The only other time I feel this hyper-awareness is when I run. But it's been a long time since I've done that, also.

I really wish I was doing more life modeling for artists. Someday...
I was contacted by a photographer hoping to work with me recently, and he mentioned seeing some photos of a fellow model friend of mine and me posing together. Turns out he'll be shooting her soon, and I guess I'm going to join! I went to have a look at these photos myself. I was pleasantly surprised :] Funny that's my reaction to finding nude images of myself on the web.....

Just me, I can't give proper photo credit because I don't know the last name of the photographer! But his name is Daniel. Here's the link to some of his work - I think: http://ldnsfw.tumblr.com/
