a Second Session with Elena Indoors

This portrait of Elena is from my first session working with an infrared converted Nikon D80, and overall I am very pleased. And Elena is one of the only models I have worked with who’s eyes go lighter in IR, not darker!

Working with the IR converted D80 was a great improvement over the previous IR camera (a D70); the RGB histogram made an immediate difference in creating accurate exposures, and the increased resolution (10 mp vs 6mp) was welcome as well.

In many ways, my winter indoor sessions are practice; as much as I like the results, they never resonate with me as strongly as images of the Nude outdoors; with Elena however, there is an extra edge to these images - her face carries beautifully in portraits, and help strengthen the images overall.
