talking about archetypes ;)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 The damsel in distress or persecuted maiden is a classic theme in world literature, art, film and video games. She is usually a beautiful young woman placed in a dire predicament by a villain or monster and who requires a hero to achieve her rescue. After rescuing her, the hero often obtains her hand in marriage. She has become a stock character of fiction, particularly of melodrama. Though she is usually human, she can also be of any other species, including fictional or folkloric species; and even divine figures such as an angel, spirit, or deity.

Thank you Jane, for being my beautiful model on this cold but sunny afternoon.

Thank you to the owner of this magnificent garden we could work in.

Thank YOU for watching this post.

All images Canon 5D II and Canon EF 24mm f1.4 L II at f4.0 ISO 100.

There’s a lot to come, so come again soon.



as promised.

This image has an even more zen-look to it I think. The expression and the eyes closed make this image a witness to the models well being at that moment. Thank you Elisa, for being my model that day.

As I said yesterday, this image is taken at the exact same spot as the previous one. That is why I love working with available light, it gives you so much possibilities in a single space, …




Technical details: Canon 100mm f2.8 macro L IS at f2.8, 1/30s, ISO 160
