The Model

By martin.w    
A rare breed considering the last few uploads....a colour photo. Just one more from Focus at Birmingham yesterday. A different shot to the previous, but the same lovely model. Not a great job (the model's...not my photo!) considering the huge crowd firing away a couple of yards in front of her!! Wink

A good model and she posed well in fact I think she was the only one apart from the bride who had dressed to model, not impressed with the show this year.

Sorry Mavis, I meant the Model not having a great job with all the lenses pointed her way each time she showed her face....even though I know that's why she is there Wink

I'm really pleased with this, far better than anything I have done at this sort of show or set up before Smile

Thanks folks

I thought you were referring to your shot about not being a great job too...lol...I was just going to say what a great job you'd done under the circumstances. I failed twice...I don't have the patience with people clambering over each other in a fight to get centre stage in such cramped locations. I prefer the one to one approach.

Well I never!! Smile))!!! Thanks Pete, thrilled to get the HC for a subject well out of my comfort zone. While I know both the model and the lighting were both excellent....at least the timing and composition are down to me. I don't think I will be swapping just yet Les as I would be the first to admit I know zilch about taking portraits Wink

Superb portrait Martin. Absolutely pin sharp and colours are rich and vibrant. Well done!

Cracker of a shot under what sounds like almost impossible conditions.

Can't help thinking a good bowl of scouse/ stew would do her the world of good Wink

Great image for me despite the difficulty you must have had getting, no doubt tripping over me at some point.......thoroughly enjoyed the day and never stopped moving around.

Have to agree with others comments, that you can tell pro's have set-up the lighting. Great captured result under the circumstance. James Smile
