N U M E R O : V I

R e a d y t o P o P !

For this entry i wanted to talk about this image i found awhile ago on Its an image taken by commercial photographer Michael Plescia.
when i first saw this image i honestly didn't know what to make of it, it was the first time i had seen an image like this. I mean to have a woman in at their most vulnerable state and then to have their picture taken, is something i was very skeptical about. But after looking at it in detail, i came to appreciate just how much beauty this image contains. Pregnancy is a very natural and beautiful thing, especially for a woman and the way this image is constructed, absolutely does it justice. The way the model is posed, just gives off a natural, relaxed and comfortable vibe. The coolest part of the of this image is how you have the contrast of colour to black and white. this image, for me, wouldn't have the same impact if it was in colour, but in black and white with the metaphoric comparison with the pink bubble gum, gives it this amazing and exciting look.
Every time i look at this image it amazes me and there's not too many images that give that impact.
