Daily Deviation

Given 2015-10-25
Lovely use of shadow and light
Earth Angel by Reilune ( Featured by DistortedSmile )
:iconaart-ish:
I really enjoy this piece :) Someone commented that it almost has the quality of a painting about it, which I feel is achieved very beautifully through the lighting and adds to the otherworldliness of the piece. I feel too as though the title suits this quite well. There's a certain quality that's somewhere between disheveled and unsettling about the photo, or at least given that it's supposed to be capturing a "celestial" subject. The pose, the angle of the camera, and the eery creeping of intense shadows across the form create an almost contradictory sense. There's definitely beauty there, but it's mingled with a feeling of disappointment, as though more was somehow expected and the reality of what's actually seen is disheartening to say the least- literally bringing the angelic subject "down to Earth." Overall, everything in this works together wonderfully, and I was happy to discover it as a Daily Deviation. Congratulations, and really great work!!

I'm a longtime admirer of Caravaggio, Giovanni Baglione and Georges De La Tour, so this self-portrait really activates a deep spiritual relais in my aesthetic brain, since it shares the same "chiaroscuro" drama achieved by those old masters,  upgrading it with a somber and mystical eroticism that's one of the main theme of my own pictorial dimension. Moreover the melancholic gaze of Jessica staring at the mysterious light source hits the highest note of the composition, making the whole vision resonate like a modern ambient remix of a Chopin's Nocturne.

I swear, I want to paint this so bad, but I have a feeling I would change nothing, it is so perfect as it is….I guess you might see brushstrokes and such, depending on the direction I would take, but it almost seems pointless!
