Suzy, originally uploaded by austinspace.

Argh. Suzy is one of the most stunning women I've ever photographed, but she is also one of the most frustrating. It's hard to take a photo that will please her. This one barely passed her inspection! I consider it a challenge to find out what she really wants (she has some model aspirations) but it's hard when the subject is so vague.

In this shot she's actually lying on the floor of my studio, where I recently got a sheet of grey background paper donated to me by my buddy Eric as payment for finding a model for him to shoot. He also gave me confidence to use my Alien Bees strobes, and it's been kind of weird but exhilarating to shoot brightly lit models these last couple of months.

I think Suzy's a classic pinup model. What do you think?
