Michael... that is just absolutely beautiful. It's naturalness is what in my eyes makes it so beautiful with gently tonality
combined with artificial light that has all the credibility of natural light.
 
The smooth on the dress and the crisp texture in the dress reminds me of a Vemeer.

You take pictures like Miles Davis plays the trumpet.
I completely agree with Fred. Your work is always first class, Michael.

Self assigned project to go shoot some motion for stock.  Out of the sunroof of my truck, 10 mph, 24 fps.  Red Epic & Canon 17-40 zoom.  HDRx to tame the sun's reflection.

Smart move. Motion stock pays better than stills stock. I do some work for a company the buys stock in large amounts
and as a result get special pricing. The cost of an urban landscape clip is around $ 700 while the same type of quality still is about $60 for the same usage.

Thank you for such kind words, Fred:)
We had a very productive session with this model, I come back to it from time to time, and this image is one of my personal favorites.
She was just getting dressed and was about to leave, but I asked her to pause it for a minute:)

That magic moment. Hold it just like that and look at the camera.

Processing it in what looks like the most natural of ways is really where the magic is.
It's about the photo veritas effect. While there is a lot of work with what is called working a file deep
that looks great it is most of the time a step away from photography and much of the time very artificial.
I think that beauty in it's simplest form is harder to do well and when it is achieved it is breath taking.
That does not mean that there is not extensive post work, it is just masterfully kept under control.
It is very easy with today's software tools to create high contrast over sharpened retouched skin
or desaturated alabaster skin.

I think the same can be said for models poses and attitude. A quite and serene look or a delicate smile
is harder to pull off than fashion attitudes.

It's like the magic of a Vemeer compared to an air brushed glamour illustration.

I love that building, I think it has the best cross section profile of any skyscraper.

Nice little interiors project.  The austere esthetic was driven by the German client.  The severity of it warms my cold heart.

Hello Simon,

What a coincidence, I'm actually experimenting with the Holga lenses as well. Nice effect and colour mood.

From the recent Las Vegas trip. The Clark County Wetlands Park Nature Center by Dekker Perich Sabatini. The big issue on this shoot was the lighting. It is controlled at a central facility downtown. Two nights in a row they promised the lighting was going to be on in the building. By the final night we didn't believe them and came prepared-we lit the interiors ourselves with halogen-half with halogen we brought from Albuquerque and half shop lights we bought at Home Depot. Also not only did they not get the lights on but managed to kill the hand rail lights at the top and left of the arched walkway. We solved this by splicing in those areas from a test shot we did the first night we got there. Like nothing I have ever done, AP is all about solving seemingly insurmountable problems in the field.

Shot this a couple of weeks ago and just got around to processing it.  Not the most exciting image, but I am really enjoying the simplicity and symmetry of it.
