Caption: Amanda, 13, softly lit by dusk, under trees with just skylight on her face. (I never did any better than this) A handheld 35mm Nikkormat with Nikkor 135mm 3.5 lens. We took 18 shots Kodacolor 400 without moving but a step. This was her first shoot ever. I made a Renaissance album of 21 consecutive 8x10s, including this moment, for Amanda (but still here). I have had this shot in 16x20 up in my studio and in every show since 1993! The serenity is real; we barely spoke. A cute note: the blue in the background is a blue tarp on a sailing cruiser on a trailer one hundred feet away! If you don't check your depth-of-field with each photo, you are missing so very much.

Great photo. I'm new to photography and i'm still looking for a "style." I've been attracted to the more romantic colors of film. I only have one lens a 50mm 1.8 on a Nikon D90 and i'm having a lot of fun experimenting. Someday i will have a 105mm. Nice job.

This photo has a very interesting texture. It seems to add to the nostalgic feel. It also conveys such a feeling of innocence … but she was 13 so I should expect that. I really like this shot.

What an amazing capture of a most beautiful young lady. She reminds me of one of the Hemingway sisters. This pic has a vintage feel to it, like one would see in an old Vogue magazine. I can see why her face had such an impact on you...

This is one of those rare photos that you DO feel like you have entered into the world of the model. It does make you wonder what she is doing today. How cool is that?

Absolutely stunning image. I'm always working to bump the contrast on my images, but what you have here is the exact opposite of what I've been trying to achieve and it is just stunning. An amazing shot.

THIS is great photography! Amanda was lovely at 13, wonder how she looks 12 years later. Why isn't she on the cover of Cosmo?
