Todays featured artist is the hugely talented beauty and fashion photography Sergey Krasyuk who has answered questions exclusively for PhotosInColor on this very interesting project.
I came across this interesting photo of a girl who looked like she had been sprayed with tar and couldn’t keep my eyes of it. It was the wonderful work of Sergey Krayuk who is based in Moscow, Russia.
With such an interesting photo I asked him how he would describe his work to which he responded ‘I try to achieve high-quality and hold the natural beauty of the models. Models are feminine and emotional on my photos’.
Sergey creates much of his work in the studio however enjoys shooting in natural light. For the shoot above he bused a angle stone with beauty dish in front and above the model with a reflector to the left of her face.
Personally I really like that we are able to see the progression on the project. Although the final image is wonderfully striking the process leading up to it re equally interesting.
When asked about how to create such work he responded simply with:
‘Cultivate a sense of aesthetics and perception.’
To create his work Sergey uses a Cannon 5D with 50mm 1.4 and 100mm 2.8 Canon lenses.
