Rita

I’ve started 2015 in the best way possible by meeting Rita.

It’s always fascinating meeting someone new, both visually and emotionally. I can never separate these things. As I’ve said many times before, it’s not about the moment I press the shutter, it’s about everything else.

Sure, it is the visual part that first draws me to someone but I’m always curious to know a lot more about the person.

Will we connected somehow?
Is she interesting?
Will she find me interesting?
Will it be boring?
Will she find me boring?

Ten minutes after meeting Rita I felt that it would be a great day and it was. We share so many things. We are both graphic designers and Rita also loves film photography. On top of that she’s an illustrator.

She is clearly a creative person and we got along just fine.

Please do check out her work.

As for the rest… well… Rita is beautiful. Everything about her face is like a drawing, so gentle and yet so… unsettling.

She has THE most amazing hair! It is a true black force of Nature framing a delicate face.

It was an absolute pleasure and an honor.

Thank you so very much Rita.

    Man, that lens is a wonder! Great shots.

    • Thank you so much and you are right, the 120mm is an amazing lens.

      It is my all around lens for a while now and I love using it with the 21mm extension tube for tight shallow depth of field portraits.
