Points of View

I really like pics which are taken from an unexpected angle or otherwise stand out as a bit unusual…

…and that one really shows off his shoulders and pecs…

… or where the boy(s) are in unusual positions or settings…

…so lets see if I can find you a few more, as a contrast to all those boring full-on muscle poses!

Now that really shows off those abs!

Nice use of light in that one, too. Next, interesting contrast with shadow (and more nice abs!)…

OK, that is a muscle pose, but a little different. Some show off by hanging upside down…

Yeah, ropes are good…

…and upside-down (well, sort of) is good too…

For some others, you can’t always quite put your finger on why it feels a little bit special… it just does

You can use some handy equipment to make a shot more interesting…

I was going to save these up for next Christmas, but ‘what the heck’ let’s go for it now with a second one…

Just emerging…

A little bit similar…

…and then there are those pictures where it is almost as if the boy is an afterthought…

Running out of ideas here now, so just a couple more where the light is the key to the shot:

 

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...

    Backlighting is always something I like. Color Beyond is placing the subject in the foreground while decorating the background with a variety of colors, usually using objects. This gives the picture a measure of depth.
