    Lovely (lady, light, elucidation, & lens). These portrait images are often some of my favorites of your work. Has the 90 ‘cron been recently re-acquired? Checking back, it seems nearly 3 years since we’ve seen posts with that tag. Anyhow, it has complimented the other factors to draw this image quite beautifully.

    • Thank you Greg. In many ways, these sort of portrait shots are the only shots I “see” naturally… every other form of photography I create feels unnatural to me, and requires considerable trial and error to get the result I want.

      On a related note, my wife will often be surprised at the outcome of these shots, because I am photographing her at the end of the day when she is tired, at the not-too-exotic location of our house, when she is not-too-fashionably dressed! But something about her thoughts, reflected in her expression, in a certain kind of light, make me press the shutter.

      And in answer to your question, it’s been a while since I’ve used the 90 ‘cron, but yes I am using it.

  2. Yep this is a classic, Peter. Wonderful!

    Powerful and calm. Again I’m impressed for maybe 1000th time in your page. 🙂

    One can only make a portrait like this when there is comfort and intimacy. This image conveys her character in a palpable way. Nice!
