As you can see… one of my favourite models and dear friend Laura popped into the Studio the other day for a couple of hours. She has a very statuesque body and I love to light it accordingly!

Pretty much as it came off the camera…just converted to warm BW in photoshop.

Canon 1DS: 1/200, ISO 100, f9.0, lens at 50mm

    every photographer should have a friend/model like Laura – is that too much to ask? Great pose Max, and of course, the lighting is marvellous.

  • Cheers Geof…and thanks so much!

    Again the light works so nice here, and what a form to work with. I keep looking at and wondering “how did that highlight get there” and “what a cool shadow that is”I thing Laura may be in my neck of the woods, I’m going to ahve to work with her.
  • Hi Mark…she goes by the name of Pirate Maiden and is on Purestorm! She lives in Bambury. Cheers
