The Gorgeous Seamstress Sugar. This photo was taken in natural back lighting with a reflector using my Nikon 85 mm lens - I just love using this for headshots. I couldn't decide whether I preferred this or the colour version of the photo. As always my style and preference is for a more painterly type of processing as that is where my artistic origins lie. I think the colour version emphasises it even more. If anyone is interested I can post that version up too.

Nikon D800, Nikon 85mm/1.8 — with Arif Akhtar and Seamstress Sugar in Hartlepool.
