This photograph is part of one of my most expensive shoots yet, on location, with a make-up artist and paid model… and that shoot is also one of my biggest flops so far sales-wise, despite having some stunning shots coming out of it – some that I even feature in my portfolio. It was originated in June 2009 for one of my classes where I chose to do a shoot based on a film noir heroine in the 50s. Perhaps too narrow for commercial purposes. I submitted this one because of it’s natural look and because of that quiet look of confidence she shows. It all conveys an intriguing sense of something going on… perhaps she’s about to go on stage for an encore… The huge red curtains in the background seem indicative of that.
