These are the pictures made from the second sitting with Barbara
(don't forget to visit her
I always look forward to the second sitting. During the first
sitting, I'm just getting acquainted with the model. Before I met
Barbara, I saw a lot of pictures of her from her website, but it isn't
until that first sitting that I got a sense of her style.
Barbara is an excellent model -- she is very beautiful, she has a
world-class figure, and she is very open to all srtistic ideas.. But I like to get a feel for the model's
natural inclinations, and together we can go in that direction.
For the second sitting, I had three basic concepts for the
photographs we'd make, and the photos presented on this page represent
my first idea. I wanted to create sensuous pictures with Barbara,
because that's a big part of her nature. To do so, we started our
sitting with textures against skin.
is all Barbara. She got the sense of the images we were making,
and she offered me this pose.
It's easy to pretend that the camera is your eye, but some pictures,
like this one (and the first one on this page), makes me think of the
camera as my hand. I get a sense of touch from these pictures, and
that's why I like it.
During the first sitting, I had Barbara standing all day long.
For our second sitting, I wanted to break some of my habits and try some
new images. Hence, this unusual angle. Barbara understood
the feeling I was trying to achieve, and she did a wonderful job in
pulling it off.
I love the geometry of this -- I've got to do more like this.
One last picture from this first lighting set-up. This is a
good transition picture to the second set-up,
