Surrendering Control by Tonyr Surrendering Control by Tonyr
This is a shot from a portfolio shoot. The model does heaps of glamour work and at first was presenting some very suggestive expressions. However we had a talk about this and once she calmed down she seemed to automatically give off a different vibe. It would seem that many of us have a great need to fit in and be accepted. Glamour photography in some areas seems to reflect this human condition. However to me the most attractive and powerful shots are ones where there is no front or need. However especially when a camera is placed in your face it is very hard to not put up some sort of front. In this image Lexy has fully surrendered to the moment and I believe that both her physical look and mood reflects this. As to the title I feel that when we do surrender our need to control outcomes that what we create is far more fulfilling.

I love your work pretty much without question, but this is such a wonderful capture of a great moment. So much about this shot to like. The real beauty of this is that it feels so at ease, so, in the moment.

This is a really good photo. When I looked at it at first, I thought she was at home relaxing and reading a book. Nice feeling.

Glad that you felt this. My intent with photos is that they look like photo journalistic rather than posed images.

she looks relaxed and not 'modeling', so much, that's for sure.
And I think you're right with surrendering our need for control. To me the best of my work as been when I simply find a great model who just fits the concept I'm going for. It makes the work that much easier and it gives me a much more satisfied finished product. I feel like when circumstances and opportunity meet work, then art can be at it's finest!
