As promised, here’s a photo. Now, I did neglect to mention that Steph was of Eskimo descent. But, once I got past the fish breath and the sight of her eating raw meat, it’s hawt knowing that my girlfriend can defend me from giant seals. Plus, she looks spicy in her designer parka which, incidentally, is made with faux fur and synthetic orca hide.
Actually, this photo’s plastered on both of my monitors at work, and is actually the only photo that exists in my screensaver’s slideshow. It was taken in very early winter and, like a pro, I wasn’t even looking through my viewfinder. Call it luck, or prodigious skill — it turned out well and I was holding the camera.
Furthermore, the majority of people who’ve seen this photo assumed that I simply admired the model and scanned it from some magazine (which is only half true). Still, I’m not sure if that’s more of a compliment to me as the photographer, or Steph as the model… I’ll give it to Steph though, but only because that whole “luck” thing is still up for debate.
Oh, and to the discerning few who noticed the subtle snowflake watermarks: those are actually much more prominent in the wallpaper version of the image. I toned it down because I thought it was a bit too “processed” for the site. Still, I couldn’t bear to completely remove them.
Enjoy. There’re more to come, eventually.
