I make a concerted effort to evaluate every MetArt erotic photo gallery, and every MetArt model, on its or her individual merits, and the same is true for every MetArt photographer. Still there are times when it is impossible not to compare, contrast, and refer to another model in a different set photographed by a different photographer.
In yesterday’s post I reviewed a model’s first MetArt series. As you will see (scroll down or click here), she was a particularly pretty girl, and the photography was pleasing, as well. My single greatest complaint was that the model exhibited a rather limited expressive range. That is most definitely not the case with the set I address in this post, Arkisi’s “Presenting” Zsanett Tormay.
Of course, a model’s expressiveness isn’t normally the first thing I notice in any pictorial, and it wasn’t the case here, either. What struck me first was this dark-haired beauty’s big, almost impossibly blue eyes. I’ve mentioned in the past how powerful I find the combination of dark hair and blue eyes and here’s a perfect example of the effect. It certainly doesn’t hurt that those azure orbs are set in a face that is refined and elegant, with ripe lips, and that her slender body is so appealing, either.
What emerged as I viewed the series was the broad and varied range of facial expressions and body language Zsanett Tormay employs in what may well be her first nude erotic photo set. She can be perfectly formal in pose and expression in one shot, and then entirely spontaneous and candid in the next. Here thoughtful, and there giddy. Seductive, teasing, sly, mysterious, flirtatious, frank, pensive, playful - these are just a few of the many expressive moods Zsanett presents to us here.
I can’t say what role the artist Arkisi played in getting his subject to share so many moods, but in terms of style and technique there is much to admire in the photographer’s approach to this pictorial. In #018, to cite one example, he shoots Zsanett from behind, her head in profile, while she’s leaning against a wall that is sharply divided between light and dark - just one of many beautifully composed images here.
Notice the little patch of bright light on the floor near the model’s right foot in #042 and the unusual “X” formed by her artfully positioned arms and legs. I love the sly expression on Zsanett’s face in the background while her toes and feet blur in the near field and her sex occupies the middle. From explicit to demure, from pose, to composition, to the many varied moods and intriguing expressions (#085), “Presenting” Zsanett Tormay signals the arrival of a beautiful and particularly talented new model.
