RE: Alternate Madness Theme - Shoulder(s)
This pose speaks to me of intimate trust. A beautiful model who is quite literally comfortable in her own skin. That's the 'story' I get from this image.

Technically, the tones and lighting are perfect for this shot with good shadow and highlight details. The focus on her eyes is tack sharp with defined catch-lights, while the DoF is perfect where the tips of her long hair fade slightly. For an informal portrait, there's a lot to like here!

RE: Alternate Madness Theme - Shoulder(s)
Thanks for the compliment Barry.. This is shot with a Canon D30(thank goodness for exif info(I miss developing film)).. I have photographed this model for several years...Like you I am an enthusiast and not a professional photographer(although I have been published worldwide without being paid). The eyes, that is what I have leaned to focus on and the rest falls into place. The lighting...I used monolights, a vivatar 285 flash, to capture this shot. Thanks again Barry...
