Hello Smile I've not been on here much over the past year, partly because I've done so few shoots and came very close to giving up photography altogether.

Anyway, I wanted to share this which is a photo of the lovely Sarah who I hadn't worked with for nearly four years. I always hoped we'd do another shoot. All being well she will feature in the final cover art for my fantasy books being published in 2012-2014. I used old pictures of Sarah for the temporary covers and Sarah saw these and got in touch.

I wanted a pale, almost doll-like look for this so I played with it in PS Smile

Thanks for taking a look. Have a nice evening!

That's a delicate and beautiful portrait. I really like the fantasy feel, and the way the eyes have been retained as sharp and clear. The processing works well with this subject and it is a classy shot.

I love the softness with this image. It goes with it very nicely, with the focus very much on the eyes and beautifully modelled.....a really quite lovely image.
