……those eyes seeming to defy normal human physiognomy – here are the rest of a small selection featuring Alisa, by a photographer who is right on top of her form:
……..and I think after the number of times I’ve featured her, Alisa deserves to be rewarded – here she is with her mum….now you know where the eyes come from:
I noticed that Bozhena had written a kind of disclaimer along with the following portrait on Instagram:
“Who know me closely or carefully watching my work, he knows, as I do not like to bare children. Dress with thin spaghetti straps – is “a disaster” 😞. And then a swimsuit, but I had to show myself that I can beat it delicately.”
……which is just special pleading for a perfectly normal swimsuit session for Caramel Moscow. Anybody following the blog carefully would know that one of my references to her previously was while teasing out the photographer for a shoot including this portrait of Kate Volkovinsky (see the post here):
….. a “snapshot” session – i.e. a kind of basic presentation of the model’s physical characteristics for prospective fashion clients, beloved by Fkids.ru and FashionBank.ru. It was a commission, and so she did it. She does tend these days to concentrate on headshot sessions (always inventive – but obviously with limited compositional possibilities) – but at her best she’s celebrated girls’ beauty and character in a variety of forms and compositions – never forgetting her work with her muse, collaborator Juliette Mari’s daughter Nastya: well represented in the post linked to above.
Some more portraits, hopefully omitting those I’ve posted elsewhere (in particular here, featuring Polinka Karpenko). The first one is a lovely colour crop of the previous swimsuit shot of Dianka Koroleva (as Bozhena names her, with no link) :
……with a fair number of spaghetti-straps……and in fact I tried to steer the gallery away from too many headshots with dark backgrounds – her signature style, more-or-less. There are still a few featuring Polinka, and Bozhena has even made a little video with a collage of stills (there’s a copyright issue with the content of the audio track, so it’s muted):
………a lovely tribute to a girl she really rates as a person, saying some sweet things in her blog:
“The incredible power of inner peace and beauty are combined in this beautiful child“.
And for me to pay tribute back to Bozhena, here’s a picture of her as a baby with her father:
Задумчивый и немного ностальгический кадр получился. Маша @mariarus5 прекрасна в любом образе, ее аристократичность идеально сочетается и с фешн, и художественным замыслом в фотографии. ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ #bozhenapuchko #красивыйребенок #красиваядевочка #портретребенка #портретдевочки #fineart #folkportraits #igpodium_portraits #portrait_shots #portrait_mood #profile_vision #portrait_perfection #ftmedd #retouching #модельныетесты #фешнсъемка #фешнмодель #fashionmodel #fashion #facesobsessed #bravogreatphoto #folk_film #featurecollective #igpodium_portraits #discoverportrait
Кто знает меня близко или внимательно следит за моим творчеством, тот знает, как я не люблю оголять детей. Платье на тонких бретельках – уже "катастрофа"😞. А тут купальник, но мне нужно было себе показать, что я смогу обыграть это деликатно. С #diankakoroleva вышла очень стильная журнальная фешн-съемка, которую чуток показываю в сториз. swimsuit @caramelmoscow #станьмодельюбожены ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ #bozhenapuchko #summer #model #fineart #folkportraits #igpodium_portraits #portrait_shots #portrait_mood #profile_vision #portrait_perfection #ftmedd #retouching #модельныетесты #фешнсъемка #фешнмодель #fashionmodel #детиактеры #детимодели #caramel_moscow #lookbook #swimsuit
