I've been taking photo classes every two weeks in Puyallup, looking at all kinds of aspects of photography: light, contrast, shadow, color, composition, pose, etc. One of the most interesting classes was a fine art class in October. The model, Elizabeth, was beautiful, with a classic figure that she looked great on this faux-marble bench. The high contrast black and white really looks good here, and I especially love the contrast between her smooth skin and the wonderful textures and highlights visible in her hair. I love her pose, too, curled up onto the bench with her bare toes, one arm up, the other resting demurely on her breast. It all just works.
