Girl with The Pearl Earring

Uploaded: September 22, 2007


This was such a fun assignment. A lady hired me to photograph her daughter as The Girl with the Pearl Earring. I was surprised that the biggest challenge was not the lighting, but the way the clothing and head attire had such a different texture therefor, cast different shadows from the original.
