I think this is my first ever FS submission taken with a cell phone.

Taken at the chapel of the Mountain View Cemetery, this was one of the 15 or so models who participated in my friend Marjorie Salvaterra's latest image for her Her series. We were all dressed like this - a gang of women in fright wigs and moonie bride tunics. I saw this window while waiting for the lights to get set up and asked one of my fellow Hers to walk through. I am in love with this image, although I suspect it will finish quite low in the rankings, probably because you can't see her face. Which is one of the reasons I love the image :-)

Gotta love the light that softly illuminates the surroundings and subject! Morning Mood is what plays in my head when viewing this. I do wish more of the subject's face was visible - not totally, just a slight tilt of the head to show us a near side profile that she is looking out the window with ....longing or daydreaming. Still it's a great shot - I was one of your 7's.

What wonderful light and tones! I think the style of hair & dress is unexpected and a bit of a contrast to the well-ordered tile floor and windows. This has all the makings of a true elegance shot, but the Her changes that to a ... a ... (almost want to say tongue-in-cheek, but it isn't necessarily humorous, and definitely much grittier than that).

Themed shoots, some experimentation and planning result in massive unique images with emotion, light, love. I look forward to seeing the set Johanna :)

This is almost gorgeous, but the boots and wild hair are a bit heavy for the rest. 8

well shot, but lacks convincing mood despite the ambience of the shots lighting.
