Much of my early work with the nude outdoors was produced along the Nova Scotia shoreline, and it is always a pleasure to return to this landscape. It is so rich in spaces to fit a model, and it has an almost inexhaustible variety of possibilities from session to session. Though I'd never worked with the Herring Cove rocks before, they were identical to almost all the other shore-lines I've worked with in Nova Scotia.

During this session, I spent most of the time working with Trisha, who'd modeled a month before. Once I found a space to work it, I spent some time showing Trisha what I was looking for, either explaining the pose, or occasionally, physically showing her myself. This was only the third time that Trisha had modeled for me, but I really think the images are getting stronger, with Trisha's understanding of my goals becoming a little clearer, and the rapport between us growing.
