Publicity Shoot #1

I had a great session with probably the most lovely face I've ever photographed.

This sitter was style personified - elegant and gentle, I really did enjoy our time together. It's not always easy to get the best out of people who you've just met. For a start most of us had our last professional portrait taken as a child! As an adult it's much harder because we can be quite critical.

But putting this aside I hope that I did this beautiful person justice - it's at this point that I start being critical of my work too so the pressure is always much worse for me!

What I particularly like about this shot is that it makes me want to get to know this person a bit more. Just what a good portrait should be.
