A few months ago, I found some “scrim art” photos on Instagram that really impressed me.
Silhouette-style photos are also nice; the viewer gets to observe the outline of the human form without being distracted by unique details. But silhouette photos are common. I’d even say gimmicky and cliché (usually).
The scrim photography gave the best of both worlds: an appreciation for the overall form and its interplay between light and shadow, as well as a bit more detail of the model to really fuel the imagination.
This was my first experiment with this sort of lighting and I’m happy with the results. I will take many more like this. If you’re interested in modeling for such photos, please contact me. In your message, include a link to your social medias or modeling portfolio if you have one.
