A beautiful image Geoff…great lighting!
whoa you’re quick Max – thank you kindly
Brilliant images Geoff………………can’t pick myself, both are great.
Well you’re a great help lol – thanks Ade – glad you like them.
Personally, I prefer the colour one, Geoff – I always find colour images have more life, more emotion and more warmth in them than B&W. This is very beautiful, Danika’s pose is very graceful and she appears to be dancing in the air. Wonderful collaboration. Lol @ Danika’s reaction to you thinking out loud – I can imagine!!!
Yes each form has its advantages – I just couldn’t pick between them myself this time so thanks for feedback and your lovely comment. Yes have to watch the self-talk – quite bizarre for the model at times I’m sure.
I like the color one because it reveals Danika’s expression more. She’s beautiful, and rarely do I see nudes with a gentle spirit in the model’s expression. I’m taken aback.
Thanks Bruce – that’s a very good point – thanks for a particularly lovely comment.
Lol, make a note for yourself: Don’t think out loud! Or, better still, warn your models that you have a habit of thinking out loud, they shouldn’t be alarmed.
Yes I do that but the snoot comment was out of the box I have to say
rofl, I love the comment about snoot on her face rofl…..but what a stunning idea you have captured so brilliantly. And how wonderful is she to go to all that trouble? Wow, bravo to you both
Yes she is beyond brilliant to work with – works all over the world – off to a 4-month gig in Germany in a couple of weeks and she is in continuous work – can’t believe how much I lucked out getting to work with her. Thanks for the lovely comment
Funny story Geoff..But your lighting is fantastic. Your model is evenly lit from your highlight to shadows. Well done!
Thanks for your close and generous appraisal – really appreciate it when someone takes the time to really look at one of my pics.
Both gorgeous shots – but my favourite would have to be the B&W. :)
Hi Adriana – thanks heaps for coming to visit – the b/w seems to have the edge.
Both beautiful shots geoff but I do prefer the b/w
Thank you kindly Helene
