“Bottled, but not contained.”


Photo for the fragrance, “Uninhibited” by Cher. Found via google image search, direct link here. As the website it came from has since shut down, all I have is the direct link.


Advertisement model/Desire.

A soft, but bright angled side light illuminates part of your face, swathing the other half in soft, seductive shadows. A higher, angled sidelight highlights just how much skin is on display, focusing on your collarbones and shoulders. You sit on a cement staircase, demurely curling over your body – whether to preserve your modesty or allude to yet unseen uncovered skin is unknown – therein lies the allure.


Photo Observation #10: Dance Inc. Ad


I got this photo from Jaclyn Marie Photography’s blog. (

The theme is Advertisement Model/Desire.

The lighting is mysterious and makes the picture interesting . The figure is lit to emphasis her fabulous arched back position that is elegant like a bird. The light encourages the viewer to appreciate the dancer’s form with its bright and intense limited use of light. The light calls attention to this dancer like they are the star in the night sky. The lighting only shows certain body parts of the dancer; it is selective in its focus. This select focus makes the star image even greater. “Don’t you want to be a star” the lighting and photo call out to the spectator. Thus, the desire in this advertisement is establish through its lighting of a model.

Photo Observation: Advertisement Model/ Desire

Natalie Portman - Dior Forever Make-upScreen Shot 2016-04-11 at 6.32.43 PM

Theme: Advertisement Model/Desire

Description: This is an advertisement for Dior Forever foundation. This photo works for the theme of advertisement model/desire because the woman in the photo is “modeling a foundation” showing potential customers that if they buy this foundation they have the possibility to look like her. The lighting in this advertisement evokes the feeling of desire because the woman’s skin is bright and glowing, which is something most people want to achieve. There are no harsh shadows or anything weird only perfect glowing skin.

Photo Observation 10


Theme: advertisement model/desire

Description:  This photo uses mainly side light and top light.  She seems to have white light coming from what would be stage left that illuminates the entire left side of her body while casting the other half in shadow, making her seem mysterious and beautiful as her features are clearly defined.  Some top light is clearly used as the top of her head is lit and as well as the top of both of her thighs.  The blue/gray background with and explosion of light from behind her makes her seem powerful and alluring.
