It hasn't been a long while since I featured a Dmitry Maslof gallery, and I believe that he may soon be to Met-Art what Stefan Soell is to FEMJOY. His galleries often contain a lot of graceful nudes, something that I respect about any photographer.
However, he seems to be influenced by Met-Art's market demands as he's certainly has some erotic pictures or pictures that has a sole purpose of showing the model's genitalia, that's when I start having some problems with a photographer because that's where s/he starts to compromise his/her talent.
Anyone with a camera and a nude model can produce sexually arousing images, it's not a secret and there's nothing special about the product, even if it's a beautiful image it only serves one function and that's to arouse the viewer(and therefore to make him want to get out his credit card and to join the website, or at least that's how some marketing teams think), it's beauty becomes useless because the viewer probably is just after the sexual aspect, therefore the beauty in it doesn't really matter. If you want to produce an erotic gallery then you don't need to invest much in your equipment or waste your time picking up locations and the perfect time of the day for shooting, all you need is a sexually attractive model and a plain camera, and you will probably make the same amount of money, or even more.
So, what's the solution?, in my opinion it is to spend more time choosing the right images, being creative while creating beautiful images, and not caring about what marketing teams say. There are some websites out there that will want your tasteful non-sexual work, Body in Mind and FEMJOY just come to mind.
Anyway, here are some beautiful images that I managed to filter out of this Olga A set, I hope that you will like them.
There are certain qualities that a set must have in order to be an inspiring one. Everyone prefers certain things about a gallery or a photo shoot, but for me the main two things that I really appreciate about a gallery is outdoor locations and the models' beautiful smiles.
As a man who has spent his short life in cities it's quite understandable why I am so attracted to nature. In the cities and on T.V we often use the word nature to refer to purity and the things that aren't that manipulated by man. The public park isn't nature, it's the deserted forest or the empty field that can be considered nature.
A gallery that's shot outdoors doesn't only represent the purity of nature, it also represents the purity of the simple yet complex beautiful nature of the female beauty. Without any pollution brought about by the work of man.
It's easy to see how the location is greatly adding to the beauty of this gallery. Of course Olga A is the most beautiful thing about this gallery, but the lighting and the location are among the things that can make you tell the difference between a good gallery and a bad one.
Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy this gallery of Olga A in Presenting Olga by Dmitry Maslof.
