Interested in contributing to my design project?
All body types are welcome to submit!
I need photos of you, preferably three. In your bathing suit. High-resolution.
The higher the resolution, the more I can do with your images!
If you’d rather not sport a bathing suit, it can be a leotard or close-fitting clothing of any kind (leggings and tank-tops?) that clearly defines the outline of your body. Preferably a solid color, no patterns.
If I decide to do more with your photos for my project, I would also like to ask you a few questions about the relationship you have with your body…So please provide an e-mail along with your picture submission if you don’t mind a little Q & A.
Your photos should be straight, full-body shots looking directly at the camera. For references, SEE THIS graphic I made as part of my design process. Look into the camera, feet somewhat together, arms at your sides.
DO NOT take a photo of yourself in the mirror with the camera in the shot.
DO NOT cut off your feet, arms or legs. We need to see everything!
DO NOT use a webcam or something that will result in a low-quality photo. A point and shoot camera is fine, I would recommend setting it up with a timer.
If you want to get a little more creative and include other poses, that’s okay too! Just for the specific project I’m working on there’s a kind of consistency I need to keep in the design.
Any other photo submissions will be used in a poster series I’m hoping to start this summer.
Help take my project to a level that encompasses body image topics, questions and stories of all kinds.
Deadline is indefinite, submit at your leisure. I will be keeping the photos for use in this and other projects.
