My contribution to DEFIANCE has made my outlook on nude shoots more positive. I had more confidence about shooting nude after my experience with DEFIANCE. I would tell future participants to let go of any fear about being nude, have fun, and enjoy your moment. While Ronald photographs you—relax. Trust Ronald.
My favorite image is the one where I’m against the white wall with a wet, long-sleeved t-shirt, because I can see that I felt relaxed in the moment. I love the shadows on my neck as well, all thanks to Ronald’s impeccable lighting technique. This image makes me feel very happy to be a part of creating art for DEFIANCE.
DEFIANCE was an opportunity to express my feelings towards my sexual orientation, feeling sexy, and confident in my own skin.
