Braid Painting, 2 (6000+ views)

VA

Before she had her hair cut, she wanted to have one "unique" idea of hers photographed, that of her using her braid as a paint brush in a sort of part creative, part hair, part figure photo shoot that could be publicly shown.

This was her initial idea. When she explained it to me (her idea was "Braid Painting, 1"), I interpreted it differently (Braid Painting, 2) and even did concept shots and a gesture drawing.

So, she has a form fitting leotard and her long hair in a braid. The "paint" is yogurt with food coloring.

Immediately after washing out the yogurt, she cut her hair and could no longer do this shot. Unfortunately, I haven't uploaded these shots because I've been exceptionally lazy when it comes to post processing.

I suppose if you like it, you should let her know...

Yes, tell her I like it. Then tell her I think she's crazy for cutting her hair.

A new way of painting indeed, I wonder if it will take off. Great shot.

Thank you for your comments and votes so far! She's very pleased that people liked this idea and that you think it came out well.

This one is my favorite of the set. The composition here is great as my eye is drawn from the painting down her body to her feet and then back up again in a circular fashion. She's really cute and you did a superb job of capturing that...and it's a neat idea too!
