No Jim, I won't tell you what the joke was ... :-) Admittedly, I find the pose a little outrageous, but it was done with so much innocence and charm that I find it merits inclusion in the backstage file ..

Jim Phelps
John, You anticipated my question. It looks like she thought the joke was funny. does the model practice Yoga by chance???? Jim Phelps

Alberto Quintal
John. She is really happy, original and fantastic work. Alberto

ADDED LATER : I remain with mixed feelings over this one. Knowing the girl and how cute she is, I am biased. If any one thinks it's just too much, please tell me, thank you.

John Peri
Thanks mark .. and just think of all the little moments that we miss to capture .. do you know that in France, they have now started "laugh therapy sessions". I knew that we had "light therapy" in Finland to help overcome post seasonal depression, but laughter ... when you think about it though, it really is the best therapy, gets those opiates cricualting and it does a world of good!

John Peri
I don't really know about the yoga, but she is a ballerina ... guess that explains some of the natural flexibility .. Jim, if I tell you my jokes, then you'll start doing all my pictures too ... :-)

Jim Phelps
John, You have a point. Maybe you should keep the jokes between you and your models. Jim Phelps

Leaving the jokes for a moment, I really like this as a photograph. The model all twisted up like a pretzel, with just the one leg sticking out, is unique. There is also something interesting to me about the bend of her limbs and the bends in the chair. Thanks to your influence I find myself trying to capture those little moments during a session when the model relaxes and the fun comes out. I like the result and ejoy revisiting those moments, especially if the photograph is made during a workshop and I know no one else sees those as important to capture. I always look forward to see what you and your models come up with next.

WoW! I gotta tell you that when I get young I'm going to be this flexable :=] Most Amazing...

The Photographer

this is such a great example of the photographer establishing a rapport with the model that enables the model to express themselves without inhibition, when the body can freely convey the beauty of the personality and the physicality
