Mia Returns

Digital infrared 
Often, I focus more on hands than bodies - they can set the tone for an entire image, and while the focus is on the body, the energy is coming from the hands!

I spent almost this whole session working with a long lens; something about the light lent itself to details, as opposed to images of the body as a whole. This composition was born as Mia was taking a break - I caught the light on her feet, and how wonderful their texture was in contrast to the smoothness of her bottom.

I have always loved high-key images, but the final image in this set, with Mia relaxing in the soft afternoon light, is one of my favourites - the delicate highlights and luminous tones overall have a nice counterpoint in the couple of rich, black shadows.
