Model Dorka, Croatia, Jul'11

Once again a Lightroom B&W. Not sure if I like pastel-color original or this soft B&W of this early morning shot better. Will post the color-version over the weekend.

Thanks to the model, Martin Wieland (model-selector & reflector-holding coach), California Sunbounce and Nikon NPS for their support for with these pictures.

P.S.: here's the color version
On 2nd thought, I now like the B&W more ...

Thanks a lot! The original color version is already quite soft and it inspired me to do an extremely soft and tender B&W (unlike the stark B&Ws with which I learned B&W), I'll post the color-version over the weekend.

Thanks! I adore Louis' pictures. I did not realize, that I had the opportunity to photograph this dream-come-true model. I met her at the Greg Gorman workshop and booked the Croatia workshop partially because of her!

Thanks a lot!

It's the blessing & curse of working with world-class models - they spoil you hopelessly, because you can produce amazing pictures. I also have to admit, that I was very enthused/excited to be able to work with them.

On the other hand, I really enjoy the challenge of bringing out the beauty in clients and amateurs or not-considered-earth-shakingly-beautiful models. However there, often too much in the pictures comes from me and they are too static/lifeless/over-directed.
