  1. It’s a nice shot and processing. The only problem I have (also with pictures in the former posting) is what do you want to show? The nice model, the beautiful hair or the interesting accessories?


    1. I wanted to show it all Janxxgeist. As a photographer you can hire expensive blahblahblah photo models via an agency but I prefer local sourcing. I want a model to be her/his natural self and not ‘made natural’. In our village we are also blessed with an incredible good hairdresser and I’m glad that you also noticed the jewelry (also ‘Made in Stanford’). The photo is part of a brochure with more local models and designated for the overseas market (next month there is a presentation of the jewelry in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil) and the brochure clearly states (and describes) that it’s all about the accessories. That’s the reason that the pictures on their own don’t emphasize where it’s all about. Thank you very much for your reply. It’s very much appreciated! 🙂
