Melchor’s settings are outdoors in natures beauty.

He uses natural settings to frame and to provide the base contexts into which he flows and molds his models.

Most of his photographs will feature in some way the clear blues of oceans, mirroring reflective pools, clean showers of waterfalls, rough textures of rocks or trees, lush forest greens and so on.

These image settings give context by featuring nature’s beauty through use of color, texture and symmetry.

The symmetries in Melchor’s images are legion.

Sometimes Ruiz will photoshop a mirror image of a cloud or rock formation.

At other times, the model’s body follows, mirrors, conforms or is otherwise painted with textures from the surrounding landscape.

Or perhaps, a foreground pool or stream will form an actual reflective surface.
