Photographer’s Notes
Okay – far outside my comfort zone on this challenge. I don’t think of myself as a portrait photographer. Don’t have a studio. Not facile with lighting. Don’t know how to find models. Far … outside my comfort zone.

But I do have a friend and colleague who is a model. She agreed to let me experiment by taking photos of her. Here’s one. This was fun and not as awkward as I feared it might be. She is so attractive it’s hard to take a bad picture of her.

Thanks Meagan.

Subtle beauty. (Highlights seem a tad harsh on her nose... or maybe it's my monitor)

The high key is well suited to this lovely, gentle portrait.
