Stephen and Maureen following the direction of one of the photographer at Eileen’s shoot. I don’t know where I got the title, or who’s supposed to be making/accepting the ‘offer’. LOL! But that HUGE string of pearls figured prominently in a score of shots with Maureen. More coming!

Model Mayhem is where to find both these incredible people but here, all sales of their work also go to them. They ROCK!

This photograph was featured in the group that couldn’t be any more crucial to my shooting: the Nikon D90 DSLR Group. In that group, we’re all on the most level of playing fields. If I can excel in that group, I can say I’m getting to know my camera very well indeed. Thanks to all the members and moderators!

    great capture love those pearls, she is in charge the man just has to do her bidding. Love the light and how this works

  • This one (I believe) was directed by one of the main photographers with both models posing as asked. But the general idea was pretty obviously exactly your take. :-) You should have seen that string of baubles. :-O It didn’t seem to have an end of usable options for posing.

    If only ZZ Top had been there to offer a suggestion….

  • I’m glad you like it. The shot was completely set up for me since I was the “guest” photographer. All the lighting, backdrops, metering, make-up, costuming… The list is endless but begins and ends with two very humble and talented models. They either took direction or did whatever came naturally. Both ways worked only because Stephen and Maureen are so darn good.

    However, I’ll snatch up a featuring in a prestigious group any day of the week. LOL!

    Thanks again!
