Big. Windows. Win. This was shot in an old building where the floor had holes and the windows were covered. Removed some unattractive plastic from this window and bingo.

Ok don't get mad... but that pipe goes directly into her butt... I can't see anything but that pipe now and it's driving me nuts. Buff that out and you've got a winner. xoxo

Appreciate the hugs and kisses at the end, so cute! I contemplated on that pipe for a while, but it stayed because I'm very much a person who shoots it as it is unless it's a totally obscene intrusion. So butt pipes stay haha

I never noticed the dang pipe until he pointed it out. Stellar image. GOT to love that LWL. [large window light] :)

Very good work Shawna and David. Your choice of lighting is awesome. Did you augment Natural Light with strobe/flash?

David Jaan's picture

Thanks Jamal! No, the light was purely provided by the window (as is with all of my images). No additional lighting modifiers or sources were used.

This image caught my eye right away from the group of POTD. Gorgeous natural lighting, pretty model and a nice pose. So different from others I have seen. Kudos to you and the lovely model. As to the pipe mentioned by others, I kinda agree it could be removed for less visual distraction. But as you said, it is what it is. Respect your decision to leave it in.
Cheers from Montréal.

So many great things about this shot, but I'm particularly impressed with the use of light and the deftly handled post processing. Skin actually looks real and not photoshopped into plastic. Superb

David Jaan's picture

Thanks David! The skin comment is much appreciated. I like to keep things looking as natural as possible.

David Eberts's picture

You're welcome! Can you share any natural skin tips? :)
