Oh wow, I always notice her picture when you sign pictures and every time I do I think what a beautiful girl she is. I like this picture even better. I can't really explain what it is I like about the picture...sort of a cross between a primative and angelic look is the closest I can come to my feelings on it. I think she is stunning in all the pictures, but this one may be my favourite. You have a fantastic model to work with but your talent is sure showing as well. #1459677

Linda Shapiro June 28, 2005

Kerby, you must be overwhelmed with the tremendous positive response your beautiful photo has created. Would you share the method of lighting, please? It appears to be late afternoon sun, but is there some other source creating this perfect backlighting? Thanks, and again, congrats! #1531190

Kerby Pfrangle June 28, 2005


I am fairly new to photography.

WE were high in the mountains and all I did was sit on her on this rock over looking the mountain area and take the picture.

The backlighting is 100 percent natural. It was just there that day.

Windy, Light and Light 3 were all taken in the same area and in about a ten minute time frame.

My personal favorite of the group is LIGHT 3. I feel it is the best image I have ever taken. I got super lucky with LIGHT 3 and WIndy and Light were a wonderful bonus.

Linda, Thanks for asking.

Kerby #1531219

Hi Kerby as I said before, beautiful photo. I wonder if you used a little fill light to bring out the skin color would this make this a touch better? It may not have worked because it may have washed out the high-lights that make the photo. Love your gallery keep up the great work. looking for more of your photos.
