04/15/2005: "Now That's a Ring!"

KassidyRing (40k image)

This was us playing while we waited for the stylist...
model: Kassidy Marley (Otto Models)
makeup: Adrienne Herbert
hair: Jason Murillo
nails: Lysa Comfort
styling: Jeffrey Lindsay Relf
retouching: Michael Block

I just got an email from Kassidy's agent telling me how HOT she thinks she is. It made me smile and also reminded me of this little out-take I shot while we were waiting on set. I really need to call Kassidy and get her in here to shoot again. Being the biggest procrastinator on the planet doesn't help much.

camera: Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II digital. Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L @ 17mm.
lighting: The main light is a Elinchrom Octa Lite directly behind me. The background is lit with two Speedotron heads with umbrellas and there are Speedotron heads with 11" reflectors covered with Xenophone diffusers on both sides of the set pointing back towards the camera and models.

Woah. This shot is interesting. Nice job.

Matt said @ 04/16/2005 04:58 PM PST

This shot seems overtly sexual - yet at the same time it makes me feel guilty for feeling so.

What do you think?

All I can think to say is "ROOTS"

Those knuckles looked more like knockers to me. Giant, huge, knockers.

I love this pic.She looks great! The ring pops,when you see the pic.and her knuckles dont even look like boobs! some of you people, read in to so many things! whatever,its HOT!

I'm just saying! Upon first glance they looked like huge, hanging boobage. Come on, it's LA...it could happen.

Megan said @ 04/19/2005 02:15 PM PST

I was wondering why her "finger cleavage" was kinda turning me on a little. :-)

Brooks said @ 04/19/2005 03:38 PM PST

I'm with Megan on this one. I thought the same exact thing.

Hilary said @ 04/19/2005 04:02 PM PST

Actually, I don't think I read too much into stuff. Most of the while I just figure if something looks nice it looks nice.

But all of us are familiar with fingers to represent legs and that part of her fist seems to quick obviously resemble her "female parts" yet there is nothing there.... and the rest of the photo is so un sexual that it makes me feel like some kind of pervert.

go figure.

But of all Brooks photos that I have seen this is not one I can say I think is especially nice to look at, BUT it honestly made me ponder.

And I am not saying this in the Modern Art kind of way where lots of people pretend stuff is good and meaningful when it obviously isn't... This photo made me think. I will not embarrass myself my pretending to wonder what it's true meaning is... Brooks Alone can know this.

But it made me think and for that it must be commended.

Good stuff

That is just the coolest shot! It's unsettling and attractive in the weirdest way.

Maura said @ 04/21/2005 12:20 PM PST

Just wanted to mention that during a photoshoot in my studio the other day, an art director saw this shot and said something about big sagging boobs. I had to laugh.

Brooks said @ 04/22/2005 08:13 AM PST

Well boobs was what I thought they were on first look, I think the slight change in colour at the joint does the trick. Lovely picture though.
