Looking straight into the painter’s atelier where he’s at work painting the girl, his model. I took the capture through the shop window, trying to avoid any reflection of the glass. In a slightly difficult position I managed to keep the camera still. Now to think of it, it must be quite funny to watch me manoeuvring :))

Shot taken during The Christmas festival and fair ( Kerst IN Oud Kampen). A vintage Victorian related, theatre festival in the city of Kampen in the Netherlands.

Shot straight from camera hand held, no flash.
Equipment: Eyes, hands, mind, soul, Canon Eos 30D
