Form, the Female Form.
Form, what is it? And I am talking about the female body. If it wasn’t for the female form I wouldn’t of written this blurb. As for that matter I don’t think I would of taken my photography as far as I have taken it. I love shooting female fashion and swimwear which was one of the reasons I started this online publication. I also love creating images that are eye catching and thought provoking. Neither of that would of happen without the female form.
So why do we find the female form so intriguing? Even woman love to look at woman, more often than not females are more critical of their own, rather than a bloke. I think socity has this pre-conceived idea with what we like to look at, as previously mentioned in my last editorial the media love to put in front of us what we want to look at rather than what we should be looking at. Having worked in this industry for so long now, I know that we all love to look at a pretty woman rather than Jane average, right?!! Well I will let you answer that one for yourself.
Moving forward with why we love the female form rather than the male one. I think it is that we tend to love to judge everything that is put in front of us, regardless if we like it or not? Right or wrong again I will let you decide yourself. So I think to sum this up in a bow tie, I would love to put this to you, and that is we all have different body shapes and sizes, blokes, chicks, woman, men, girls or boys. We have one body that will change as we get older , and it is up to us to decide what we do with it. Do we stay in shape or do we just go with the flow and let your body change gracefully or do we put the time and effort into maintaining it so our form will be our own legacy forever??
What is beauty? I think everyone has their own idea of what beauty is. I certainly do and I am pretty sure you do as well. Before I go any further I would like to ask you a couple of questions? How do you perceive what beauty is and how does society see it? Two totally different questions when you think about it and here is what I think what beauty is and in a way should be.
What is beauty? Is it a Australian size 8-10 long hair, blue eyes and drop dead gorgeous. Or is it what goes on in the inside of your mind, regardless if you are a female or male. The media portrays the first thought hands down, just about every image that is used in advertising has a pretty decent looking person in it. Why do you ask?? ........because that is what society wants us to see. We don't want to look at a over weight person or someone that is not easy on the eye do we?? ( Or though plus size models have been around for a while now, but I will leave that for another editorial to write about ) We want to look at a beautiful person who has nice feature's and is something that we would all want to inspire be like, and that is physically beautiful.
But in my opinion it is what goes on the inside of your mind is what really makes a person beautiful. Or more to the point how they project there beauty that they have on the inside to the outside that will really make them beautiful. This is how I would like to see the media portray beauty but unfortunately it doesn't.
So I ask you this, the next time you meet what yo may think is a attractive person regardless if it is a male or female, do they project there beauty across to you?
