This is an amazing photo. I especially how the focus is on the spikes and everything else is a bit blurred.

Definitely a favourite

I think it's definitely one of your best works. Nice composition and light. And the contrast and tones make it look like an old photo. But I like because it's sensual and scary at the same time, great mix of feelings :D

Nice stuff, it is very reminiscent of the early 20th century photos of course. Though, I can't help but think that a model without tatoos ( or removing them) would add to the sense of timelessness. Might not be the point but something about ink on the models seems out of place. And maybe that IS the point. Ah well, it is a subjective preference.

Are these view camera images or med. format?

Thank you. Yes, it is a subjective preference. This picture looks exactly the way I wanted it to. The anachronisms are part of the aesthetic.
Also, again, none of these photos are photo shopped so I wouldn't "remove" the tattoos. This one is 4x5 (most are), some of the others are medium format, but all are on film. When you see them in a gallery you're seeing a print straight from the negative without any manipulation. That is also a choice I made for this project that is very important to me.

Many have faved, yet I have no problem hopping on the bandwagon.
I love the retro style of campy 30's Vaudevillian horror mixed with a sexy, contemporary twist. The tattoo and gauntlet on her left arm give this such a mixture of character and culture.
Nothing you can control, but the model is extremely gorgeous, too. I escpecially love her feet. She has such beautifully crafted feet.

Amazing Photograph!

Thank you very much. The name says it all. She was poised from the tips of her fingers to the ends of her toes while lying naked on a very sharp and unforgiving bed of nails. My wife kat and I both tried it out and it was MOST painful.

Very intense...
I actually managed to check your gallery. Not the dA gallery, but your professional gallery. Very impressive! Did you actually do the press Photos for Fear Factory Digimortal? If so, I have an infinite boost of respect for you.
Lastly, I hope I may ask, but do you know the name if this model?

Erotic, Sensual - sure it looks kind of painful, but her expression gives away calm, pleasure or even lust. The backround with the candles give it a more mysterious atmosphere.

My favorite thing is the way her fingers are posed, very nice work :)

This is weird, but I love the creative and artistic blow on it.
Don't know why but I associate this photo with Willy DeVille music. Give me your opinion about this. And whether you don't know it try to listen.
Great work !

Isn't she wonderful... Those are very sharp nails that are not at all close together. As far as bed'of'nails go, this is a rather painful one to lay your naked body on.

Wow. Sexy, sensual, beautiful and a bit creepy. makes me feel like a bad person for finding it exciting. Really wonderful look/feel. Great presence and mood of the model. (is that real polaroid neg film?) Great large format feel, really brings it all together.
