[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Every August for the past eight years, black-dressed and black-lipped goths have flocked to the central Dutch city of Utrecht for the annual Summer Darkness festival. I was lucky to be there by co-incidence. It was like a fashion show on one side and on the other side, It was like a modeling photo shoot. models were ready & moving around, photographers were like bees in a garden. one just has to find a place, get its position, point the camera & click. It was a great experience as I never attended any modeling or fashion photo shoot. One thing which I got new is to fight for ur place and position in fashion & modeling photo shoot, otherwise u'll b pushed to the corner by other photographers.
Few more to come from the same series. Hope U ppl'll like it.

I like the dark, mysterious, maybe even gothic type girls. They have to have a good personality too! I'm very picky!

Hi Usaf

She may not be the prettiest girl on the block, but I can tell she has loads of character & individuality. A good head & shoulders portrait with excellent colour, sharpness & framing. Tfs!

Salam Usaf
A nice portrait work captured with good details of facial feature and good use of light.
Have a Nice Weekend!
My Best Wishes

Awesome portrait of this lady with great natural pose. I love the color of her hair. Good lighting and sharp details. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Usaf..this is a nicely composed shot with excellent details and tones. Nice work on the focus and exposure.

Salaam Yousaf Bhaie,

No doubt it is a big change by shifting from PANDAAN to an Western circus, I did try to read the NOTE but it hard to follow hence you did shot well your model, may there need a permission to ask. Beautiful specially the hair colour attracts more by its sharpness, TFS.
