Being a musical theatre director, I know that any scene can be greatly enhanced with the right props, or the right stage set. In this Prize, I am asking models to use either a unique prop, or find a unique setting that will enhance their photo sets. A prop can be anything, from something as large as a piano, to something as small as a doll. A setting can be any unique location that will enhance the shoot, and advance the story being told by the set. Be creative, have fun, and tell me a story.
Inspired by the work of DeAnna Photography, I thought it would make for a fantastic prize on Zivity. You are tasked with doing a boudoir shoot using only black & white images. Like the saying goes when you photograph in black & white, you capture the color of the soul. Prizes up for grabs as always. So go out and capture the beauty & essence of women.
Cuando se piensa en una mujer latina seguramente se piensa en curvas, hermosura y sensualidad, pero todo lo que envuelve a una mujer latina va arraigado a sus raices. En tu set, haz gala de las costumbres, los ancestros, la arquitectura, los atuendos típicos, la música y gastronomía de tu país. No olvides hacerlo con todo el estilo y elegancia de la mujer latina.
I am asking that you take a favorite poem, piece of verse, and pose to it. Now, Dante's Inferno and Paradise Lost are a bit long, so probably too many shots needed. I have never seen something as lovely as a tree, might be a bit too short. But in the end, find a bit of verse (and I will be very open as to the definition) and shoot a set. Could be romantic, sexual, nature, funny or even dramatic Please Name the set the Title of the Work you are illustrating.
Reveal the beast within, Show the darker side perhaps or maybe your inner beast is a cute little rabbit.... Whether through set, props, costume, attitude, pose, body paint, whatever you like, explore the theme and portray the outer shell and the beast within.
College classes have started back up for the year and we all know how stressful they can be. Everyone needs a short, relaxing break from their studies to refresh their mind and body. The theme of this contest is simple. Show us how you take your mind off of your textbooks to relax. Sets should start with a stressed out model and pile of books in a study environment and end with the model in a completely different place.. at least mentally.
Zivity is full of models with beautiful bodies, we all know that. But I believe that a model's true beauty begins with her eyes. I am looking for the model with the most expressive eyes. Eyes can be dark, or warm, or even piercing, anything that makes your look special. If you have beautiful eyes that you feel enhance your look, this contest is for you! Enter a set that showcases your eyes, and we will 'see' who has the best eyes in Zivity!
