Hey cut that out by ash Hey cut that out by ash
This girl had insisted that I photograph her earlier in the day, which I dutifully did. Then I bumped into her later as she was talking to this guy, who was selling toxic sludge. Turned out she's a photographic model, yet she had thought that I had just pretended to take the first shot (out of politeness, presumably) because she hadn't seen the flash go off (must be a model thing). I assured her I really really had pushed the shutter button :) (Smile) This time the guy insisted I take their photo together. Personally I would rather have just photographer her, but still :D (Big Grin) I did get her number though .. in case I ever need a model, you understand.

i can understand that you'd prefered a more "intimate" shooting session. but i'm glad it didn't turned out the way you wanted (anyway - you got her number Laughing ) - it is such a joyful picture - without the guy sth would be missing ...

hihi..immoral;-) (Wink) yeah it is ;-) (Wink) If they want to get photographed they should be happy that we do so .... Anyway - You are getting really good in taking this portrait photos ! Cool stuff in my eyes !

you keep your cotton-pickin mits to yourself ;) (Wink) to be honest the sad truth is that she probably only gave me her number in the hopes of getting some modelling work -- which is all well and good except that she'll probably want to be paid for said work, which clearly is out of the question. now *that's* immoral :) (Smile)

Be careful Ash, its against the law to have heterosexual fantasies on Pride day in Brighton. I wont tell anyone this time but you know what they say. Ignorance of the law is no excuse rofl

he he, lucky! a model phone number! This Brighton trip looks like it was worth it!
There seem to be loads of intresting pplz there, i might go....
Anyways back to the photo, you must be useing, a zoom lense,
cause the dof is spot on,and the comostion.
I think this is a great photo, I like it cause it's a photo of a conection between friends.
But it would be cool to just have her.........
