First time MetArt model Feeona A. concludes her bio with the following suggestion: “Enjoy life and smile often.” And it becomes quickly clear that she follows her own advice. There is a lively light dancing in this model’s eyes, and a smile is never far from her lips. And when she is smiling, quite often that smile is joined by a pair of pretty dimples in her cheeks.
The set begins outside on a sunny day. Wearing a short dress — and that adorable smile — Feeona makes a fine first impression. A shot like #010, with the model leaning against the wall of a building, has a casual quality and her pleasant personality is evident.
After getting to know the model in an urban setting, the series moves indoors for a more formal, stylized photo session. Here the studio light is diffused, the background is white, as is a layer of sheer fabric which gives the floor a cloudlike texture.
One of my favorite shots in this gallery is #037. Feeona is still fully clothed in this headshot. She’s framed from her shoulders up, and the composition, combined with the lighting and the expression on Feeona’s face is very pretty. Another headshot, #100, is another favorite. The dress is absent here, and the model is lying down, but the beauty of her face is deftly captured.
While photographer Rylsky tends to hang back at a respectful distance for the more explicit poses, Feeona is quite open and uninhibited in her presentation. I get the feeling she is completely at ease before the camera, and enjoying this experience to the full. Have a look at a totally nude shot like #065 and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
