Coffee break?

This shot is made during an advertising campaign shoot in Studio SOTA 96, with a lovely Brazilian model, Thais.
Model and photographer relationship is interesting.  It is interesting because the result of the image is heavily depended on the chemistry between the model and photography, which often they meet the first time on the spot, to produce work! And within a very short time, the two needs to becoming good friends, trust each other, rely on each other and help each other.  There is no real time to get familiarization, at least not by conventional means. So I often talk to my models, and between shoots – usually change of costume, make up, hair, accessories, or simply a coffee break.   Often times I also shoot a little more! To get them do whatever they prefer or I prefer, not really to get the pictures needed for the job, but often resulted better finished picture for the job. This one is such a shot.  Made with a Phase One P65+ on Hasselblad H2.
