C’s photo shoot, Part 4 of 5.

This was taken just prior to the sunset, as the light cast a warm glow.

All the previously washed out nuances of colour and texture in the environment seemingly emerge from nowhere and take on a golden hue — this is what happens at the so-called “golden hour“.

    So now all 5 parts are in I can leave the comment I actually had tee’d up yesterday. They’re all wonderful and fun and the camera really likes this young lady, but this one, ah, this one…

    Her pose, that little Mona Lisa smile she’s got going, the lovely color, and the really fine, subtle composition, all work together to make this far and away my favorite.

    The tail end of sunny made sweet 16, for sure.

      Very generous of you Greg!

      I may have to agree with you about this shot.

      We were actually walking past this wall near the end of the photo shoot, and I noticed a low-lying beam of sunlight (that had made its way through the surrounding buildings) was shining on this part of the wall.

      It was like a natural spotlight, and it had this wonderful golden quality about it. So, I asked C if she could sit there and, well, the rest is history.

      (By the way, I love your description of the “little Mona Lisa” smile. I asked her to be serious for this shot, but she is so ebullient that she couldn’t help letting a little smile escape).

  2. Yes, I’m with Greg here Peter. This picture is the one that pleases me most. Perhaps because it leaves some questions through the more pensive smile? Perhaps too, because I see the ‘expectations’ of commercial portrait photography coming through in the others. This latter is not a criticism of course.

    I too enjoy the Mona Lisa or pensive smile…truly makes the image.
