We were using real barbed wire. There was a large potential for injury on all parts, and even with the incredible precautions we took, there was some damage done to both. But please do not try this at home. Don't get hurt cause you saw this, k?

I've been just dying to work with Adam, I'm a huge fan of his photography. Last night, we finally got to meet, and the "Barbed" Series ensued.

Model: Me
Photographer: Adam Chilson Adam has just joined dA, and can be found at *Doomsday-Dawn

Yes kids. It's real wire. The points aren't clipped or filed, they really are digging into skin like that. No photoshop either. This turned into one of those photos (and prints) that I looked at, and went "Is that really me? Wow..."

Ummm...Wow. A DD! I feel special :D Actually, all sarcasm aside, I am really proud to see this piece go up as a DD, I think it was well worth it. So thank you to ^scottb for featuring me, and to *semi234 for suggesting it! :hug: And thank you to all the people leaving me kind words, and fav'ing this piece, and others. I appreciate and value your thoughts quite a bit :)

Oh my god.
Definitely thought that was a chest/arm.
Then the boyfriend is just like, "Pretty sure that's the booty."

The restraint we put on things in our minds warp their natural, more beautiful state. Westerners have a large number of taboo's in regard to our bodies and sex.

It's interesting to see that concept in the flesh, so to speak.

Nice work.

I recently did a barbwire shoot as well. One of the results is up on my profile here right now. I enjoy seeing and producing the works that at least look dangerous. Yours is one of those very cool ones that no one should attempt, but certain people, like myself, happily will. :)

It's a very eere piece, yet also beautiful. It's almost like looking at a Bernini, with the way he handled his molding, and then I realize, "Ahh! It's real flesh!" and chills go down my spine. :clap:

Your work has been featured in my journal [link]
Its a journal dedicated to close up nude photography, to fight against the concept that close up nudes are automatically pornographic, inspired by the work of =Pelicanh and =PerryGallagher

Barbed wire can definitely be painful.
I have terrible scars from when I fell on a fence and got tangled up...
I admire the bravery, and the picture is gorgeous. The sharp points of the barbs digging into the soft surface of the skin is gorgeous. It's one of those getting pleasure from pain things.
