More MUSCLE by Tonyr More MUSCLE by Tonyr
Shot from a recent portfolio shoot I did for a friend. She has been training again after the birth of her first child and wanted some shots to chart her progress. My early photography was centred on mostly fit and toned women. I am still facinated by muscular bodies and even still am not totally sure why. As with everything in life balance is important. However even though the model in this shot may be slightly to the higher end of the balance I still find that it has it's own beauty.

Have added the writing below which is from the model Carly. A few people have asked about her traning ideas so here they are -

I do weight training 3 times a week for bout 40 mins then do 20 mins cardio straight after...I always consume a protein shake within 45 mins after training which restores my muscles and helps them grow... I recommend training with a partner or personal trainer when possible to push you to failure so you can get those extra reps out that you may not have been able to do on your own!!

Change your weight training program every 8 weeks so your body doesn't get used to same things.Always change to wholemeal pastas or bread instead of white varieties . Eat smaller meals more frequently eg: 5- 6 times a day. And eat at least 40grams of protein a day through your foods such as eggs, lean meat, chicken, tofu, turkey etc...

Woman is the Greatest Creation of all the Life on Earth. God Created Woman to be the Companion of Man because Loneliness was not Good. Those who are Single Loners and been the Rejected for no reason other than the twisted, warped, Immorality that pervades our Society, are able to see the True Beauty that Woman is and are more capable than any one else to see just what is right and what is wrong.

Lol no.

I'd rather not be a present to man.

I do not care for them at all unless they are friends, family etc. Do not generalize women as 'gifts to men' and not all men are heterosexual, some are homosexual or asexual.

We objectify both men and women every day. Anytime you see a movie, a photograph, a drawing, a video game with people in them...guess what... They are now objects. They have been objectified. There is nothing wrong with objectifying something so long as it is still shown respect.

I think you distore the meaning of the word "gift" much. I don't even consider it a language flaw because all you need to understand the meaning is to have a desire to understand it. Also, all things are good in moderation: feminism shouldn't be about deifying nor about finding insults at places there aren't any.

pastelsneakers Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
honey, the meaning of the word 'gift' is literally //something voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation//. i understand the meaning of gift. this has nothing to do with feminism anyway.
feminism means //
the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities//, this has NOTHING to do with rights or opportunities. im just purely saying that objectifying anyone and calling them a /gift/ is wrong unless said person is consenting. please do not take my comments and alter my words.

"Gift" can also be a figurative term to mean something great, in this case, the comment simply means "Women are great". Use a bit of comprehension and context, it doesn't hurt.

hey there, looks like everyone wants to talk to a 15 year old about the meaning of the word gift. as far as im concerned, the word gift should never be used to objectify ANYONE. its just not something that a respectable person says?? how about instead of saying that someone is a //gift//, you just say that they're great or that they look nice instead of hiding behind a controversial statement?
dont tell ME to use comprehension and context, im pretty sure i know a lot more about the English language and how to use it in different situations than you do, and im 3 years younger than you.
