Gone With The Wind

I was thinking a lot about this Friday's theme, and what to post, and actually ended up digging in my archives, and going back to 2011. In February of 2011 we did a shoot on some local hills, and I remembered how windy it was that day. 

You can view some of those images from 2011 here:
1. Darker Country Fields
2. Two Country Portraits
3. Country Fields
4. Magical Woods Portrait
Anyway, I went through them and saw one that I never ended up using since it was so windy on the cliffs. But once I applied my own technique of black and white, it ended up being presentable. It has that indie, fashion-shoot, off-the-cuff quality that I can't really put my finger on.

  8. Moin Mersad...

    ein wunderschönes Portrait ist das geworden ! Und das nicht nur dank des Modells, sondern vor allem Dank des Fotografen.

    Mir gefällt es in s/w richtig Oberklasse ! Aus irgend einem Grund stehe ich sowieso auf s/w ... Das bringt immer so eine ganz eigene Stimmung mit sich.

    Okidoki... Ich wünsche Dir ein schöne Wochenende

    LG
