Hip Cat

This shot is good example of why it’s hard to go wrong with a photograph that combines a model with long legs, high heels, and a pose that places the majority of the model’s weight on one hip.

This shot possesses an attitude of sensuality; and the centerpiece of that attitude (even more than the model’s facial expression) is her jutting left hip. 

In my opinion, the image would have been even stronger if nearly all the discernible shadows hadn’t been eliminated in post-production. This elimination of shadows makes the model appear to be floating in the frame and gives the shot a bit less substance than it might have otherwise possessed.

A multi-light setup was used; with special emphasis on highlighting key areas (the model’s face, left hip and lower back).

Additionally, oil was applied to the model to give her skin an added sheen.
