What a lovely lady, Peter!

I like the assymetry and geometry of the background. Balances her perfectly!

I have always been impressed with braiding of hair. I used to help sometimes with my sisters hair. The most exotic I think are the delicate braids of the French women that bring the delicate weaves around the top of the head!

This girlís hair is wonderful!

What is the tat?

Are you meant to see just a tad and then have to wonder?

Asher

The tattoo is an abstract design. It's not visible unless she's wearing something very low cut like a bikini bottom. Her name is Daniela.

A great model. I hope you get to a lot of work with her. what do you bring for lights: strobes, camera flash or reflectors.

Are we going to see more.

We do have a section for figure studies too!

Hmm, I should post some shortly!

"Are we going to see more." (?)

Sure, here she is full length and another showing her amazing hair. This was on a visit to Isla Providencia (Providence Island) in the Caribbean near Nicaragua. The island has a long history of British occupation including by the pirate Henry Morgan.





Just sunlight. I have no experience with special lights or professional models.

Can you imagine how much you would have to pay for that perfect sunlight light if you didnít get it for free! My goodness, you are as rich as a desert Sheikh with many oil wells!

Well one more. Six thirty am with a little fill flash, waiting for cab to airport and departure to mainland.
