New models join the MetArt talent pool at an almost astounding rate. By my informal count, in the month of August, alone, 13 new girls debuted at MetArt. As I write, September is only five days old, and three new girls have already appeared this month. Impressive.
Obviously, it’s the talent in front of the camera that’s of paramount importance, but the artist composing the images is a critical part of the erotic art equation. And this MetArt erotic photo gallery is the first submitted to the site by photographer Alen Amadeus. So “Presenting” Kolumbina A is one of those happy occasions when we first meet a new model and artist simultaneously.
After examining only a few images I’m impressed, intrigued, and entertained. Kolumbina A with her lithe, lean, shapely body and long, wavy, pleasantly unruly auburn hair is a visual treat. She has particularly refined facial features, and she’s exceptionally expressive, conveying a wide variety of moods without a hint of stiffness or insincerity. She has a natural beauty that is enhanced by a relaxed ease in front of the camera. When she smiles one can’t help but smile along with her. I don’t know if she’s had prior modeling experience, but this 20-year-old knows what she’s doing and makes it look absolutely effortless.
Likewise, Alen Amadeus has a solid grasp of the task at hand. It’s an overcast day on the verdant banks of a river. He’s dressed the model in shades of red that adds visual snap to the images without looking the least bit contrived. He knows how to present and flatter Kolumbina to maximize her assets, and at the same time he fully satisfies the needs of the viewing audience. Modest, pretty headshots, figure studies, explicit anatomical close-ups, candid, spontaneous moments — he captures them all with a skilled ease and style that never draws our attention away from the model.
This MetArt photo series is a success for Kolumbina A and Alen Amadeus both as individuals and as collaborators. I look forward to more of their work, either together or apart.
