Got a chance to work with the new but talented model Erica, lots of excellent images in this session! Erica did the hair herself and Josephine Caspari did the makeup. Enjoy!

Capturing the light defines these images. Can't make up my mind which I like best.

Thank you for your kind words! The natural light (with a reflector) was perfect, but it was just around sunset so the I had to bump the ISO a bit, luckily still in acceptable range for the K-3

The full set is on flickr with additional pictures like this one. The swirl to the left of the model is without PP, just a perfect combination of foreground and background leaves and a little bit of FA43 magic

Very nice, Don Thomaso. The circular bokeh is very unique! Lovely model, also.

The first two shots are brilliant, especially for the quirky poses which lighten the mood.
