The start of this session with Elissa was purposely focused on working with long lenses; I have become a little concerned with how much I love my ultra-wides when working with the Nude, so am going to make more effort to counter this with long-lens images.

to work with. In this case, the beautiful angular light worked
perfectly to contrast Eliasa’s smooth skin with the rich texture of the

For all my intention to push long lens images in this session, true to form I continually returned to the wides, preferring their ability to describe large, sweeping environments, and provide some context for the Nude.
