Art photography, female athlete

This art photography depicts a female athlete outdoors, nude in a landscape. She bursts with energy, in mid-stride, leaping through the air. The background is an expansive, nearly featureless dunefield of white sand in New Mexico’s Tularosa Basin desert. A lively blue sky stands in contrast to the neutral desert sand.

The color palette is predominantly light, neutral tones of beige and gray. The golden tones of the main subject stand out against the other colors. Distant hazy peaks draw attention to the horizon which cuts the image in two a bit above the center. This generous allocation of space to the desert sand emphasizes the depth of the picture. The ripples of sand behind the figure are strewn with footprints that lead into the distance. At the far right edge, tufts of vegetation can be seen in the distance below the mountains. In the lower left corner we see the shadows of her legs.

The female form has been a subject that has fascinated artists for centuries, and this contemporary art photography of a female athlete outdoors follows this tradition.


This action photograph includes both sharp detail and elements of motion blur. The most obvious effects of motion blur can be see around the edge of the subject, at her feet and hands. These aspects can be examined prior to purchase by fully zooming in on each preview.
