All the pictures of me shown here are how I looked when the pictures were made. They are artifacts of me.
My appearance has not been retouched except for removal of some temporary scars and wounds, clothing imprints, stray hair. My physical features have not been changed, corrected, or enhanced. No make-up was used except for air brush or lotion tanning, and hair color.
Camera Raw was used to make most corrections applied globally to images: color temperature, exposure, contrast, color, clarity and smoothing, sharpening.
Photoshop was used for selective adjustment of flesh tone, contrast, selective sharpening, and global lens distortion correction if needed, and final sizing and cropping.
I am the person you see.
I have been urged not to self-censor for online viewing artifacts of desire and reflections of solitude. However, because of their erotic subject matter, and despite the opinions and advice of several models and other female friends to the contrary, the pictures shown online have been self-censored for public viewing by limiting the selection or by pose. For some self-censored poses (by covering, meant for modesty and not as defensive body language) there are identical or similar poses uncovered (more explicit) not being shown here online. I like both; they are viewed somewhat differently.
