Dear K,

It could even be that the artist is lying on a cot or on floor in which case, all credit should go instead to the photographer, etc. But I agree that the final results are beautiful.

Dear Mr. sangom.

You are absolutely right. :clap2:

The second pose struck by Shobana is of unstable equilibrium - even if only for a split second. And if the saree is pinned, it all the more likely in a case where there in no movement! Otherwise it might hamper her movement or she may jump too high and tear her saree.

I remember reading an incident. The photographer wanted the model to dance and swirl so that her skirt bellows it. Bur the effect was not to his satisfaction. So he made her lie down and spread out the shirt to get as much flare as he wanted to get.

From the photo no one could find out that the modal was in fact lying down horizontally and was not dancing vertically - as thought by the onlookers :)

Another point is when people jump up, the dress will not cling to their body but bellow out!

See the photos of the dancers doing vertical jumps in page 2 of this thread.

But Shobana's thighs show out so very clearly as if sculptured-
may be beacause she WAS lying down and the dress clung to her body creating this 3-D effect.

re post #24, #25

please look at the shadows .. they appear on the ground.

which would be difficult, had shobhana pic has been shot with her on the floor, and then it being superimposed on to a background.

not that it matters much, but this appears genuine.

.. and no matter what, what a pretty lady :)

The second image could be genuine standing pose, but that pose itself is quite unstable unless she is pulled by the saree and kept balanced. But the shadow in the first one does not prove this; even a lying pose with proper lighting can create that effect, imo.

sangom,

The way I understand these types of photographies, these are continous movements clicked away on high speed high focus sensitive cameras. Out of these, certain select outstanding ones are selected.

So, it is highly probably, shobhana did not pose this single unit by itself, or was even aware of the delicacy of this pose, this being but a morsel of a whole pie

That is why most of the credit goes to the photographer, pl.

ofcourse!

a good photographer (or nowadays those fancy cameras even in the hands of a novice) can make an ordinary viewed scenery, close to a work of art!!

i have two nephews in chennai, who are into photography, and it is amazing how they capture sights around and outside chennai ...

makes you feel like jumping into a plane and visiting those places right away...

still..shobhana to me, is an object of sheer beauty :)
