Fern Poses Indoors (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
Apart from a couple of sessions with her sister, I have only worked with Fern indoors once; unlike that session, which was happen stance, this afternoon of photography was long in the planning, I had the space we were going to work in prepared in advance of Fern's arrival, and minutes after she came through the door, we were making our first photographs.

Whether we're working indoors or out, a surprising number of photographs of Fern revolve around portraiture - outdoors there tends to be more "environment" in the composition, but her face is more often than not a major part of the image. To some degree, I think this is just a symptom of my pleasure at working with a model comfortable being identified.
Digital infrared original
True to my above comment, fully 3/4 of the images of Fern were portrait based, including this portrait, from right at the end of the session, made in infrared, I really like how all the tones, Fern's hair and skin have the same luminous quality.
