In this case I used a black background and just erased the model out of it with the eraser.

Normally I will use a blue background and use something like primatte to get it nice and fast, because we were stressed with time I had to cut some corners and used the black background.

WOW! Very well done, Frank! I love how some of those look almost like paintings. #1 is my favorite.

Master Doorhoh, I must ask. How much is the model or subject and how much of the wonder of an exceptional photo is the photgrapher in your own belief?

This model brings much more than most. Your own skills have always been obvious. I like this set of photos for the way the color shades in the background and girl's body paints compliment each other in harmony with the fem mystique. These were a celebration of the mystery, whereas most of what we see are sad, failed attempts of the cliche.

An exceptional gift you've given us, yet you don't seem to appreciate it yourself as much as we do and I wonder why. I only hope you will venture more on this path.

Really good work. I especially like the first one for the way the background works with the subject

I don't really understand by what you mean about the gift I'm not appriciating ?
I love every second of my photography from preparation to PS.

How much is the photographer, in this case more than 70%, although the paint is very important.
Most bodypaint pictures over here are just shot against a crimpled background and harsch light or building lamps are used.

I coached the model to take a certain pose, did the light and complemented the whole shot after wards in PS.

For the pictures with the plain background I think the photographer is about 30-40%.

Greetings,
Frank
