Erotic fine art photography

In the genre of erotic fine art photography, a major consideration is how subtle or overt the sensual imagery is. This particular example chooses a metaphorical approach, with shadowy bodies swirled in arcs of light. Writing with light through the darkness, the fantasms inscribe in glowing gestures.  Bright violet flourishes of light approach glowing white that dominates the composition. Eyes are naturally drawn to the mysterious figures, despite their shadowy appearance.

The arcing paths of light made up of several rows of parallel lines. These converge and separate through their curves.

This is either a Cabal of identical triplets, or a single sorcerer who has made phantasmal copies of herself. Her glowing magic creates a time-lapsed display that simultaneously obscures and enhances her appearance.

The figure at left stands on her toes. Her legs are taut and her back arches forward. Her arms stretch forward, splayed fingers disolving into the darkness. Her head bows forward and disappears behind her arm in a tangle of dangling hair.

The central figure stands in a dancer’s pose. Her legs are crossed, and her body twists in the opposite direction. Her arm bends upward, forming a triangle with her neck and shoulder muscles. The final figure mirrors this pose; the two figures step away from each other, and their torsos twist towards one another. Their arms stretch towards the void between them and blur together.

The more erotic elements of this composition are partly obscured by light and movement, but are nevertheless discernable to in inquisitive viewer. This fact creates a balanced aesthetic that is of importance in erotic fine art photography.
