Thank you so much Jonathan. You have understood the carefree manner in which this was taken ...he he ... the model liked it so much, she wrote to say that she sent it to .... her mother!!
Ok Tanya, so now you made my day .... :-)
Such natural charm and sweetness! Delightful spirit. You truely capture "moments" in life and hold them forever in your gallery John. Hmmm! one day...one day...i shall be your model :o). Warm regards, Tanya.
But Curtis, you are asking for a posed and set up image. It would lose half it's interest. Isn't the partially covered face and the clutter what gives it the sponatenous feeling.
Nice image John. The beads add a pleasant touch of additional colour
John, Excellent smile and the expression. Great composition and the light. Lovely background effect. Great.
I love her smile and the light is just so pleasing.
quick john!! as usual john finds the great models.. and he knows what to do with them.. how ya been john?
what make this photo so high rating? the model ? the dark and dirty background? the bad cut of her legs?Oh my God...
This shot is utterly charming and shows your style to perfection - it is a true "whole body" portrait (I just recommended someone come and look at your work and this is a brilliant example). I love the "covered" snap as well. They both sparkle with her personality. Best wishes, Jonathan
Wow... ...what a chic John! Hummm, 3 minutes....great portrait with such natural charm of the model (and it says a lot about the charisma of the photographer as well :o)). Warm regards, Tanya.
Natural very natural, the model is very relaxed, good photo.
Outcharming... John, You have many charming pictures but this one outcharms a lot of them.
How many shots were you able to take in 3 minutes? Did you set up any lighting at all or only use natural? Just learning studio lighting, so very curious, if you don't mind...thanks!
A great exposure, would like to see more of her face and also a little less clutter in the background. Other images in this shoot are very good. C
Ok Curtis, next time I'm offered three minutes for a photo shoot, I'll spend two and a half on the clutter ...... can't see it actually, but never mind, I'll search ....... ;-)
I think around ten pictures ... lighting is natural in this case. I'm standing in the street in sunshine facing the open front door ... I think a scooter went by at one point .. she covered up momentarily!
cheers John, Three min? My apoligies, I bitch at a 10 min shooting time. Again I hope you also try shooting a male, really challenge yourself... regardless, i do enjoy your works and will keep coming back. C
See i dont think that the clutter adds to the care free feel of the image, its the models expression, posture and hair that does it... what I was commenting on was a lack of attention to detail. Attention to detail and the ability to capture spontaneity at the same time is what a true portrait photographer should be able to do, if not, its just a well exposed snapshot. Now had you had wanted the clutter to help add to the spontaneity of the image, then my apologies, it just doesn?t seem that way in this image. Regards, C
Nice Tuck! Me and my brother used to tuck when we where younger, pretty girl with an odd chin?
Nothing wrong with the model's chin. it's my bad photography!
A great image. So natural.
A photo session lasting under three minutes .. .. that was the deal ...
