First I would like to say that, in my eyes, Crystal Renn is in great shape! Following the time I spent shooting her for the Fashion For Passion exhibition, people have asked me what she was like, and I've told them that Crystal Renn is not only incredibly energetic, pleasant, and fun to work with - but she is one of the best body movers I've ever shot. Crystal is a true professional and knows how to work her angles superbly well, which is exactly what I told Glamour Magazine in my recent interview with them.
Below are 6 untouched images of Crystal moving around, shifting hips, working chin angles, etc.
It's important to note that, if you watch her thigh, closest to the left side of the screen, as it shifts from a vertical position to a downward - there is a drastic change in body size. This is one of the most basic lessons, when studying either photography or film: lower angles give you a wider subject and the closest thing to the lens will look the largest. As I said in a previous interview, this series that I shot with Crystal was done from a higher angle and with a wider lens. The following is footage taken from the shoot, itself, to better illustrate these points.
In addition, I have included a "before and after" of the images I blogged a few weeks ago.
I want to reiterate that I feel Crystal looks amazing in both images and the minimal retouching that I did do - it's nothing you wouldn't see in any magazine today. There is nothing hidden about this.
