Miss Elizabeth

Miss Elizabeth

Last week I had the chance to shoot with a terrific model and good friend -- Miss Elizabeth. We've worked together for over 7 years now . . . Elizabeth was one of the first figure models I shot back when I was new at this and she was earlier in her career as well so we've kind of grown up together artistically. I so appreciate her grace and ease in front of the camera as well as the fact that she's just fun to work with.

Last week, the setup was simple -- a medium soft-box and a big studio that let us have a dusky dark background despite the strobe. The images are a bit of a departure for me -- several in color, for one thing, and a bit more of a glam feel. I'm hoping to get a set of images that I can submit to some of the newer fashion magazines that publish the nude figure along with straight fashion. I do like the soft but directional light in these images -- maybe channeling a bit of Vermeer. See what you think . . .
