Tanya was fiftenn at the time I shot this image. An absolutely beautiful young woman,physically and spiritually. A ballet dancer in her youth, her grace and ease with her body made her even more lovely.Notice her hands and feet..positioned so gracefully,echoing the diaphenous white of this couture gown.
I shot natural light with reflectors as fill, fil capture on 35mm TMax 400 and Ekatachrome 64 pushed. I very,very rarely reduce color to black and white as I see color images in color,and black and white as tonal in my head before snapping one frame of film. E.P.
