Dad shoots his daughter "old master" style

Definitely some of the better child portraits that I've seen...

Dad's photos of daughter, 5, look like classic paintings - TODAY.com

A few very similar pics are on PPG. I think I even voted for a couple of them. The same kid, I guess, and if I'm right, the photographer is a fellow Pentaxian.

Edit: Yes, I was right:

I like them all - except for the first one.
I don't like to see children in make-up, especially with cherries and lipstick. Not cool.
I understand the color of red, but it's slightly innapropriate concerning young girls.
It saddens me when I see young girls being indoctrinated.

Bill Gekas is phenomenal. His mastery of light and composition are on par with, or better than, most of the marquee photographers in the business.

I'm a fan of Bill Gekas ever since I stumbled onto his blog a while back. His blog is awesome because he goes into great detail about how he sets up his award-winning shots.

I also like the fact he uses the DA 16-45 quite heavily for his work. In fact, it was his blog that convinced me to get my own copy of the 16-45.
