All of the Belly Art photographs were created on location in the living room of one of Mark Jordan's clients, except Beach Ball Belly, which was taken at local park, in a sandbox. The model must be commended for sitting in the blistering hot, Southern California summer sun with a nine month belly.
All the images were captured digitally with a Canon 5D. The primary light source was a large, south facing window. White and silver reflectors (48") were employed to soften the shadow edge and bounce light into the shadows. Each Belly Art photography session was approximately 30 minutes, with the paintings requiring a few to several hours, and digital post-production artwork taking anywhere from a day to a week.
The entire project took several months to complete, with babies being born in the process.
Even with the images meticulously captured, the work had just begun. It took another year of planning, deliberations and untold hours of fine detail to complete the project.
