Photographing a model is a very nerve wracking proposition for me. I see a lot of great work out there on the web and it's really intimidating. The following image was a concept that I have been refining for a while now. The lighting, posing, and textures, are all designed to lend an certain air of mystery to the image. I hope it works for some of you! Many many thanks to my lovely model Tanya for being so patient and supportive as I endlessly moved lights and props and got her to refine her pose ever so slightly over and over and over again.
