Karen

Coworker Karen is extremely camera shy. So I was pretty surprised when she agreed to pose for me for a calendar that I'm trying to put together for my working place.

I've always loved Karen's eyes, and I told her that I would try to focus on them.

We were downstairs of my office building with Karen sitting above some plants. The leaves reflected a greenish glow onto her face . . .

and for the briefest of moments Karen thought of her mom who had recently passed away. Her eyes glistened, and I knew I had my shot.

Great shots! I really like how your lighting really brought out the colors in her eyes..these came out so beautiful. You have such a way of getting people in front of your lens..you gotta teach me your secret on day... :-)

Thanks Shun Wah. I really don't have a secret. Maybe you just gotta nag them enough until they give in.
