Sex and Sensuality
With a lot of dA debate recently about what is and isn't fine art nudity, I decided to post some sensual examples that I feel fit into the category of fine art photography. Dedicated to all those deviants who don't just like fairies. :D

Urban and Rural Weekly Feature #14
Week Fourteen
This is the 14th of a regular weekly feature from the Urban and Rural photography gallery.
Each week, I'll bring you a different themed selection of amazing and spectacular pieces...
"Tilt-shift photography" refers to the use of camera movements and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene. Sometimes the term is used when the shallow depth of field is simulated with digital postprocessing.

Personal Quote: Not even GOD knows what you're doing!
New job has me working +75% of my time in Vegas - so I'm learning a new area, and looking for new things to shoot. 

If you're in Vegas or going to be in Vegas, please get in touch and lets see what we can create! 

There appears to be a LOT of opportunity for creativity that's different from Washington - but it's also a desert - so a new challenge too!

There is a lot of focus on glamour - hoping to find some creatives and concepts to work with.

More fun - hope to have some new images up soon!
