I agree with Taggart...this is much, much more than just a snapshot. Get rid of the light patch on her nose and this would be perfect.
Thankyou 4 the share...Click Smile

Beautiful portrait Diana, stark yet haunting, so very much more than a snapshot.

those triangular catch lights are very engaging... one of those images where you don't want to be shooting on a 39mb digital MF, some portraits it's about transitional states, about tones flowing, like this Smile

you have such an astute eye Nick

its taken under the arches here by the beach, the sun is to the left/behind me and I am in the middle of her eyes creating that triangle of light

cute hey?

the arches really do create a fab studio, I often go here and have even set up a complete studio with a lighting kit underneath them

great apres wedding shoot location too Wink

This is one of the best portraits I have ever seen, snapshot for you maybe, decisive moment to me, If this portrait was in sepia i would thought Nadar, Love the contrast oozing from the beautiful eyes the expression is unique and better than Sarah Bernhardt in my opinion.

Wonderfully simple. Remind me of a famous Walken Evans portrait of a farming lady during the FSA years.Same staightforward efficient approach.

thanks too Francois but dya know, I thought of Richard Avedon when I saw this on the screen, similar to Walker Evans, yes (well in context anyway)

I love it too, its one of my fave own photos for its plan simplicity

I'm going to shoot more like this now, thanks for the inspiration on this

much appreciated
