John, Another beautiful shot. Great pose. Really a very beautiful model. Just pleasant. Rgds.
Ok. I got to ask. You say that she is a model. Normally you do not shoot models, but rather women from all walks of life that aren't used to posing or being in front of a camera. It is one of the things I have admired about your ability as a photographer. However, here it seems you have done the exact opposite. Taken a professional and captured her as a friend. Bravo. I learned early on watching your work that it isn't the champagne, it's the intoxicating charm of the moment. f/64
John, a dumb question. What do ZD stand for? I see it in all your photo names. peace
David, there is no metaphysical meaning to these letters nor is she from outer space (as far as I know). It is simply my anarchic method of classification, but not that it really helps me in finding photos again when I need them!
Jim, you are right on of course, and I do not photograph professional models usually. This one is an exception however that was presented to me by Thomas Dunkerley and I took some pictures of her during her passage through town. She very nicely succumbed nevertheless to the ritual of a glass of Champagne and a long conversation on the sofa. That being said, you are very observant Jim, as I refer to all my models as such for the purposes of this portfolio, so as not to personalize their contribution.
Sickly color????? Brown is the new black my man!
I beg to differ.... I hate to interject but I think this lovely young lady must be from another planet. How anyone can look so relaxed on a sofa with such a sickly colour is beyond me. Seriously thought John, I have come to learn you are less caring about critiques and that your presence on P.N is in sharing your work with us. That said, I do think I would like ot see all of the model's right leg and foot.
Aha, plying them with that white wine again John!
No offence Alex, but I think I could get around John's place blindfolded. But if you WERE to ever swap for a bit, I just want to be there on moving day. That ought to be a sight to behold. f/64
DAVID: to answer your remark above, I do not think that I have any set agenda in showing my work on PN. I enjoy the exchanges and have picked up many tips that hopefully will help me to improve my output.
John She is lovely. May I please stay at your place in Paris, the views are so much better than the alley way of the hotel I was in the last time I was in town. Would love to see more of her.
Well Alex, maybe we could swap apartments for a while ...
Wine glass and couch .. a wonderful young model that spent a couple of days in Paris ..
