One of my favorites from my shoot this past weekend with local fashion model Khushboo. This dress is one she purchased to attend a wedding and it's a beautiful piece that just begs to be photographed. We ended up with a lot of keepers but this shot with her in mid-turn really pops for me. The motion really adds some great energy to the fell of the shot.

First of many images I'll be posting from shooting during Ashley Hylbert's portrait photography workshop this past weekend. This shot includes the lovely Brooklen Dai Wilkes taken in the upstairs apartment space at Ashley's White Ave Studio. The main light here is from large windows capturing the early afternoon sun. To camera left is a large silver reflector filling in the shadows.

Another image from this past weekend at White Ave Studios this time with the stunning Allee-Sutton Hethcoat. It's plain to see here that Allee has an exceptional presence in front of the camera. She completely commands the viewer's attention in this shot even while she's maintaining a connection outside the field of view. What a privilege to get some time with her in front of my lens!

Very creative image of a stunning lady... I think that eliminating the portion of anatomy (?) appearing at the bottom of the image (image left of the lady) would generally improve the portrait...

I photographed a professional model on a workshop in London a few years ago. I used the Leica M mostly so cannot post here but I was astounded at the difference it makes! The first time I looked through my rangefinder I saw the magic :)

I would have to disagree, a tiny bit more of her shoulders I think would put her into context.
Ah - I get it... That is her shoulder. I agree that a bit more would help but, mainly I would like to have seen some separation between background and her blouse. Perhaps it is my monitor but, I don't see any connection between the subject an that portion of her bare shoulder...

Super work! Professionals in front, behind, and around the camera. It shows in the result.

If I had to vote on the shoulder, my very humble and unqualified opinion would be that a little more would be good. Enough to show that it is a shoulder.

It must be the setting on the monitor, as I can make out the texture of the folds in her top.

A window, a silver reflector, and a stunning model all conspiring to help me create this image of Saniya Allen. I really love how the light is wrapping around Saniya here and how it showcases her beautiful face.

Great set up and beautiful model - if only you could see the pupil in her eye.
