"M." A Favourite

You don't take a photograph, you make it. -Ansel Adams

"M.", Has to be one of my favourite portraits taken with my EOS 10D and Canon 50mm EF 1.4 USM. I seem to post it on every blog I use :-)

The shyness of the subject was further exaggerated by the strategic placement of the model within the creeping branches.  The rhythm of the hair and the branches is so similar and it was this that initially gave me the idea for this composition.

Mr Skee: Lol, thank Mai, here's a quote for you to think about

Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera. -Yousuf Karsh

Mr Skee - this is a wonderful portrait, but I guess I must be 'old school' - the creeper over her face spoils it for me.
Personally I prefer the other two versions that you've put up sometime ago. I'm not liking this one.

Mr Skee this a lovely portrait. The light and angles on the face are just spot on. The vine matches the curves of the face but for me its a little distracting. I wouldn't mind it if your model was moving it out of her way. For me its like when you watch a movie and they leave the fridge door open.

imho you are a master in shots involving people....Not always loving them but you always seem to have such a creative way of photographing and PP.

So very lovely.
Very nice lighting. The hair goes perfectly with the branches, even the stripes on her outfit seem to match right in; I love the composition.
