Hi there, Sailor
Lens: Pentax-DA 18-135mm Camera: K-30 ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 2s Aperture: F6.7 
Posted By: Dewman, 10-14-2019, 11:35 PM

It took a lot of coaxing to convince this dear friend of mine to pose for this. Her husband was watching with a very dim view.... in more ways than one. But, I told her the effect I wanted and she went the extra mile. Her great, great grandchildren will get a kick out of it.

Really good photo. Lots of details, lots of meaning. Black and white really appropriate. You are talented.

Naughty but nice! Excellent detail but the lighting really "made" it. Make sure her great, great grandchildren know the real background to the picture or they may wonder about their great, great granny! :-)

Fantastically detailed and moody photo Dewman! I need to show this to my wife so she knows that I am not as obsessed about photography as I could be

Thanks for the kind words. What makes this photo a little more "unusual," is that her husband, who was looking on during the shoot..... is an genuine Cowboy preacher with his own congregation in Goliad, Texas. That was the reason that he had some reservations about the revealing pose. But, he was a good sport about it all.

Good eye, whammerhead..... I was trying for the Joan Crawford look.
