Excellent Francis, very good connection with the viewer so you did an outstanding job as the photographer. Also light and composition is spot on.
You can see the April Foolishness 2021 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

Working from The Port Gallery and Zone 3 Photo Studio, I spent around 4 hours shooting Michelle's portrait. For this shot I had her lie in the still waters of Lyttelton harbour and spread her hair around her. The surrounding dried flowers were added later by re-shooting the printed portrait with the arrangement.
She loved this one and a few of the others. It was a perfect day.

We shot some fairly straight full length images as well as close ups. Lighting was natural with a big white reflector.

Jodie and I spent a few hours on the Port Hills looking for the perfect shot for her boyfriend, a fisherman who could be at sea for months.
In between Christchurch City and Lyttelton Town are the Port Hills. These imposing rocky ranges were a significant barrier for the European pioneers who settled in the area from about 1800.
The Port Hills have become a signifier for the area and, many Lyttelton and Christchurch residents would identify these ranges as 'their' Mountains.

Very provocative; this image asks a lot of questions with that look in her eyes and the background 'action'

I really like this although I might have used a reflector at a more acute angle to cast more of her face in shadow.

Your daughter I assume. Does she 'eyeball' you a lot? Hopefully only the positive kind eh?! That's a keeper for her 21st birthday slide show
