Are you ready to enter the dark side?
The idea that most women cannot fully explore their dark or naughty side (represented by the underexposure of the left side of the picture) arose in the beginning of society when prostitutes were stoned by the very same men with whom they cheated on their wives. But today, women are more and more able to explore that nasty side wthout fear of repercussions. On the other hand, many women are scorned for being goody-goodies and are often dismissed for the naughtier, more "fun" girls. The personal challenge as a women - balance.
I am actually submitting this picture as a challenge to all female photographers out there who ONLY take pictures of themselves....there is a great big world out there with billions of beautiful people, places and things....I challenge you to step outside and take a picture of something other than yourself...it is really eye-opening. I take photos of myself (like this one), but this does not blind me to looking at the rest of the world. If all I did was take photos of brushes, I would probably get pretty damn good at photographing brushes... Point....I see too many on DA that need to do something else besides take a picture of that which they see every freakin day of their lives.
My challenge to men out there...keep making all women feel beautiful and encourage them to express a little more of that dark side.
