Featuring the lovely model Lydia. Shot spring 2009. (Third in a series.)

I don't generally use a lot of green in my work-- I lean towards black, white, purple, blue, and red a lot more often. In this case, I think the color choice makes the photo, though.

It was Lydia's idea to shoot with a mask, and the concept was really advanced by the excellent work of my MUA, Krystal Gail Makeup FX. I hope I played my part as well.

People seem to enjoy the mystery and allure of this series, somewhere between glamour and fantasy. I also think any photo with a very limited color palette tends to be appreciated a bit more.
