The Guardian Of Her Virtue


I created The Guardian by using a black and white nude portrait with a color photo of the cat.


  • The Guardian, was created by me,  photographer, Charles Carpino of Charles Dean Photography.
  • The Guardian is a fusion of elements, starting with a model I photographed years ago. Impressed by the model’s appearance, I felt compelled to augment the subject further.
  • This led to the inclusion of Fiona, a feline companion from a previous photography session, to enrich the composition.
  • I enjoy adding an unexpected twist to my artwork, capturing the essence of my  subjects while exploring alternate presentations.
  • If you’re looking for more whimsical images that will capture your imagination, check out the Whimsical Animal Series.
  • Prints of this beautiful photograph are available in three sizes: 8″x10″, 11″x14″, or 16″x20″.
  • They are printed on archival photo paper with a lustre coating, ensuring high durability, and are mounted on mat board for added support.
  • Please note that prints are unframed, and any framed images shown in the representation are for display purposes only.
  • About Charles Dean Photography:
  • At the age of 40, I received my first camera and swiftly developed a passion for black and white photography.
  • However, it wasn’t until I turned 53 that I decided to pursue my dream of mastering the art of portrait and product photography by attending and graduating from The Hallmark Institute of Photography.
  • Presently, I am the proprietor and photographer of Charles Dean Photography, providing a range of services to my clientele.
  • This portrait of The Guardian is a whimsical blend of imagination.
