[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have said before that I think most of what we do is practice...we take thousands of pictures, read all the books, practice with light, focus and all the techniques just so that when the right opportunity arises we are ready to capture it.

Some people are incredibly beautiful on the outside but don't have an inner beauty that comes through..likewise some people have and inner beauty that comes through even though their features are not perfect....

But once in a while you find someone who has it all.

Stephanie is that person...brilliant, beautiful with and inner warmth and modesty that makes her a great subject.

I honestly think it would be hard to take a bad picture of her...but I think this is one of my favorites because it shows so many of her qualities.

Bonjour Roger,

Je la préfère en couleurs, son visage me semble plus doux!!!
Cependant le NB lui garde toujours ses jolis yeux clairs!!!!
Dommage qu'elle ne fasse pas carrière pour les photographes, elle est vraiment très phogénique!!!

Hi Roger,
Very nice portrait of Stephanie!
She is very pretty !
Nice contrast and light,
great job..

Hellow Roger,
A nicely captured image,an absolutely beautiful model with such striking eye to eye contact.Well done.

Boa tarde Roger,
Healthy, beautiful and justly proud and you show it very well. Good positioning and under special light and a great shallow DOF and very good blurred BG.
Excellent work,

Hi Roger,
I agree entirely about beauty coming from within, your shots of Stephanie are excellent and I think I like this one the best. Her eyes say so much about her, she looks confident yet modest, intelligent and kind

Hi Roger
All i can say is you have an amazingly beautiful model and with that anything is possible. Good contrast and light.
thanks for share

Very nice portrait Roger.
Beautiful model, super lighting and composition.
Best regards.

Hi, Roger -
Just catching up on my TL galleries after a few days off. Very special image -- such a strikingly interesting looking and attractive woman. Although her coloring is so nice (per your other shots of her), this b&w gives a classic feel. Very sharp details of her eyes, hair and smooth skin. Nice bokeh background. Very good choice of crop for an effective compo. Nice work.
