1st Session with a New Model (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital infrared original
One of the earliest images of Bianca from this session, this image was made 10 minutes into her first experience modeling Nude. Bianca’s years of dance and yoga came out almost immediately with this pose; initially she was simply lying stretched out, and then, without any prompting, asked “what if I arched some, like this”.

By this point, about 30 minutes into the session, Bianca was totally comfortable in front of the camera, and was working hard with me to make the space work; though she complained the window was “too small” to do much with, we managed to create a handful of successful compositions with variations on her flexing against the window edge.

I  just love this image - made just after an attempt at something totally different that didn’t work; Bianca walked away from the camera, into the doorway, and stretched. Then the famous (for me at least) words came out “Oh, don’t move”…

The last images of the day were actually the first of that night; as we were walking back to the car, we passed by a fog-shrouded pond; not one to pass up such a beautiful moment, I asked Bianca if we could create one-more set of images...to which her answer was "where do you want me".
