Please do NOT try this.
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?

Due to the new and unusual nature of the work, please don't ask how it was created. Both Adam and I would like this to not become a fad, not to mention the basic information I could give you is NOT enough to keep you and your partner safe. If you really really want to know, feel free to contact Adam, and inquire of him.

I'd also like to note for all, no Photoshop was used in any of these images. What you see is what we did. Just makes it that much better in my opinion.

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

Model: Me
Photographer: Adam Chilson *Doomsday-Dawn

This is probably one of my favorite images from the series so far. As I'm sure you've noticed, these have all been fairly tightly cropped and very focused images. The next series will be more full body shots. This image/pose in particular will be included in both series. As stunning as I feel it is cropped like this, it is even more stunning as a full body image.

the lighting in this is superb, as is the whole concept. I think the pose is really good, that slight bend towards the right is great, shows off the hips very well and creates a lovely flow in the photo.

She looks like she's caught in a giant spider web... and the barbs add to the dangerous feel of the image!

I comment just on this one, because I don't want to fill you with comments on all the photos, but I have to say that I love all the series, and I comment on this one because I think is the one I preferr, in all the series the lights and the contrast are perfect, I preferr the photos in BW, but the others are very good too, you both have had very good idea for great poses and the compositions of the images are really good! You even used the wire in a very artistic way I think! Great job!

very interesting indeed!
awesome shot.
i especially like the way blur was used to focuse the eye in the tangle.
I would have loved the arm was a bit out of focus too.
Even tho, just like that is amazing. :clap:

Wow very crazy thing to do but it came out well. =D Would have like to barbed wire around the entire body, but that would have been pretty ticky and dangrous to do. o.o;;

Fantastic job you both did!

The first thing I did on looking at the first image in this series was cringe and say 'ow' a couple of times. Then, of course, I wondered how much twitching you must've had to restrain over the course of this series.

I actually like this one better than the DD. The shadows the wire creates on the skin of the subject are spectacular, and the idea in general is fantastic. Stellar work! :)
Reply
:iconnyx-valentine:
Nyx-Valentine Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2006  Professional General Artist
I'm glad you found one you liked! I have to admit, the one they selected for a DD is one of my favorites, but I like some of the others a little better...that one is just the most immediately stunning. The wire ended up being a lot bigger part of the image in all of these than we expected it to be, because it -did- cast a lot of shadow. But I think it turned out fairly well, and I'm happy to hear you agree :)

:iconladyrhianna:
LadyRhianna Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2006
I think the one selected was selected because it was "dangerous" looking (ow. :P), and therefore rather interesting. But yes, I liked all of them as well. I look forward to seeing more. :)
