mysterious..... :) And well thats a nice background Stephen.. It reminds of my hometown...

@Sharon: Well, I know this isn't Los Angeles or Manhattan - so where was your hometown, Sharon? And, thanks...

Hema Iyer from Bangalore, India

Great shot....and beautiful background

Tammy/Cricket from Huntsville, United States

I can say I like the woods in the background. She appears pretty close to the edge. Not a good place to be while naked. MMMM....????

25 Feb 2009 5:56am

@Tammy/Cricket: I have three rules when working with a model:

1. DO NOT hurt the model
2. Try not to hurt the photographer
3. Have fun!

...she was safe and fine. Thanks for the comment and concern, Tammy. Be well!

Scott Schilling from San Martin, United States

Stephen. Wonderful scene in the fog I love how the fog brings out the color and tones. Lacey's red hair is so vibrant in this light and the forest is glowing with color through the fog! On the photograph store you will recognize the prints in the front. I am worried that I did not print a couple of them with enough contrast, but if you are in that area let me know what you think??

@Scott Schilling: Thanks, Scott - I will make it a point to get by there in the next few days. Congrats!!!

Liang from San Francisco, United States

she sure isn't shy. What a perfect location you picked to do this shoot too. The woods and the foggy lights blend well!

Charming...I prefer her being shy. ;o)

25 Feb 2009 6:34am

@Suzanne: Thanks, Suzanne - and I have to ask - how do you know? :- )

Interesting and mysterious

yz from Budapest, Hungary

with the background trees and that beautiful red hair she looks like a forest fairy who was frightened by a stranger
very poetic shot

@yz: Lovely observation, yz - thanks.

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

It's a pity that the car was so inopportune :)
The photo is very funny indeed, she looks like a shy nymph.
I hope we'll hace the opportunity of seeing more pictures of yesterday's job :)

25 Feb 2009 10:23am

@Paco Díaz: Hey Paco - please understand there is nothing inopportune for us when we do a shoot. Lacey and I have fun with everything that come along. There was much more traffic along this little road than there should have been. We finally figured out that a construction project further up the road was the reason.

This will get you into our shoot and a whole bunch more:

A tantalising shot, Stephen. Nicely captured

Marcie from United States

Very romantic. Love the mood...the color..the mystery. Well done!

25 Feb 2009 1:05pm

Anthony Lambert from Bielefeld, Germany

This is a different change of direction for your blog Stephen,nicely done !!
P.S. do we get to see the nude shots as well ? :-)

25 Feb 2009 1:31pm

@Anthony Lambert: I kind of have a 'family' view of the AM3 blog space. I want the kids who post here and their parents to be comfortable - no matter where in the world they are. Here's a link to 'after the passing car':

Thanks, Anthony

dogilicious from Millerstown, PA, United States

Great shot nonetheless. The eyes say it all.

25 Feb 2009 2:01pm

@dogilicious: Amen.

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

Naked lady with the the trench coat...I fell a story coming on! Pretty impressive

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

Wonderful, Stephen. Her red hair is gorgeous.

Rags from Plano, United States

LOL! interesting story, I am glad you took the shot, it is so neat.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Cool shot.

25 Feb 2009 5:33pm

Rui from Leiria, Portugal

I think it's a much more interesting picture, than a simple nude. The girl's expression is so shy but provocative, as if something is about to happen. Her hair color is gorgeous and makes her look like a fairy.
Excellent work Stephen.

25 Feb 2009 6:17pm

@Rui: Thanks for the thoughts, Rui. We had all met Lacey back on February 5th:

Lovely shot! love the colors and light.

Tammy/Cricket from Huntsville, United States

Oh me...I have to say I am laughing. I saw your response above to me and I came back to reply. I then decided to click on the link that you gave Paco. You are one busy man. I am sure you are making the other men in here envious. Well, at least some.

Anyway, back to where I started. Oh forget it ...I am lost for words. I can see why they are not worried about being on the edge. I guess they like it that way.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

i just checked out that link...all those shots remind me of spencer tunick stuff, but with only 1 person at a time!! cool shots!!

26 Feb 2009 12:48am

@Susan: I am a huge Spencer Tunick fan - and greatly admire his work. The focus of my work is different but with an underlying message that has common links I am sure. Oh, and thank you very much!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I love the fog's presence amongst the tall trees as the sunlight tries to makes its way through.

But doesn't a jay bird have feathers?

27 Feb 2009 9:02pm
