Molly at Sunset

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 10 September 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

model: Molly Klaproth - 2004 -

This was our final image from our final session. After this capture we packed up our gear and drove down the hill into Sausalito for a cup of coffee to warm us up. It got pretty darn chill after that sun went down.

These past five images were taken amidst the WWII gun emplacements of Fort Barry -
Golden Gate Headlands - Marin County - California

larger view:

[tomorrow]: is a kind of 'beauty and the beast' transition as we go from Molly to trucks, and big equipment, and dust, and demolition for a few days...

Cor blimey, that light is fantastic!
Now Molly might send a shiver down your spine, but surely not a chill.

Really like the background and the sunset tones in this shot Stephen. An impressive and unique portrait. She has a natural beauty about her.
