Nice capture.
vz-nostalgia: What is it here that caught your attention, Ola? Her hat? Her fancy shoes? Her paintings? Her charming smile? smile

Beautiful context with the artist and her work. She has such an air of confidence.
vz-nostalgia: You got it right, Ms. Laurie. She's Miss Confidence, I have no doubt. smile

The panel effect works for me, VZ.
Where is the glass of red wine?
vz-nostalgia: Artists don't measure wine in glasses, Ray. smile
I had a look at the website. Very interesting.
vz-nostalgia: Looks like you are the only one who did so, Bill. smile

Her portrait as reflected in the glass is nicer than her portrait as captured directly. Looks like two different photgraphs.
vz-nostalgia: It all should work as a whole, Jack. Don't try to split her personality. smile

Well if you can afford to hang out with artists, you are set.

She reminds me of a cousin of mine.

This picture will do her website proud.
vz-nostalgia: Louis: Well if you can afford to hang out with artists, you are set.
VZ: It doesn't take much, Louis. Just to be crazy enough to blend in. smile
Louis: This picture will do her website proud.
VZ: I think it is the other way around, Louis smile
I was hoping for great things when I saw the thumb Victor ... But I'm very uncertain about the composition. The lady is fine. but i thing too much is crammed into the image. Having looked at the paintings on the wall and a swift browse of her site ... I'm also uncertain of of the style of painting ... Ther are certain similarities to the ubiquitous Jack Vettriano whom I find rather slick and tedious.
Not that I'm saying her work is slick ... just having a similar feel. Apologies to the lady if you know her ... but as you know a lot of art is very subjective.

vz-nostalgia: RT: But I'm very uncertain about the composition.
VZ: Damn! And I thought I nailed it in terms of composition. smile
RT: I'm also uncertain of of the style of painting ...
VZ: Hey, I'm not resposible for her painting style. smile
Regarding Vettriano... all has been already said in the world of fine arts. One can always draw a parallel between now and something in the past, be it a photograph, a poem, or a piece of music... all is a variation on a theme.

Louis: When you knock around with artists, someone has to afford the refreshments. If that is you, you must be set.

Louis: This picture will do her website proud.
VZ: I think it is the other way around, Louis smile
Louis: Her website will do your picture proud? I will have to think about that.

PS. I have many of the artist types in my extended family. Painters, actors, musician, poet and even photographers smile We are still missing a serious sculptor.
vz-nostalgia: When there are so many artistic people in the family, there should be at least one exception, a person on which nature takes a rest. Is that you, Louis? smile
compozition is quite amazing...nice 1
vz-nostalgia: Actually, I got 2 nice ones, Ms. Toni. smile
I had a look at this last week and was unsure about the mood of the shot and decided not to comment. Looking again this morning I am still split. On the one hand it looks like a typical photograph of an artist at a trade fair with their work. Yet the confident pose sitting outside the booth looking in, places her in the position of observing us in her space. This for me is a strong dynamic that is quite unsettling. If it wasn't intended then this is an interesting aspect to a very theatrical pose - because in effect it is putting me off entering the space.
vz-nostalgia: It's okay not to comment, Mike. Don't feel guilty. smile
The photograph maybe a typical one (a typical one?), but the model is definitely not. She does look very confident and rightly so. smile I don't know about you, but I was not intimidated by that confident, but charming smile. smile

I like the reflect in tne background : her reflect becomes one of the portrait on the wall. Present is already becoming the past (the essence of photography). Really like this compo.
vz-nostalgia: You are on the right path to understanding this portrait, Ms. Aurore. So glad you do. smile Seriously.

Is there a link between this woman and the one on the photo on the foreground ? Don't know... You're compo is full of keys, i feel it, but i don't really want to know the truth or real story, i think i even prefer imagine my own stories wink thanks ! cheers
vz-nostalgia: Ms. A: Is there a link between this woman and the one on the photo on the foreground ?
VZ: Of course, there is! She painted it. smile Check out the link under the picture.
Ms. A: i think i even prefer imagine my own stories
VZ: That's how I'd prefer for viewers to approach all my pictures. smile

The artist and her work, two faces of one person, all right VZ wink So you perfectly catched her whole personality.
vz-nostalgia: : smile
Aurore: So you perfectly catched her whole personality.
VZ: No-no, Ms. Aurore. Her whole personality is much more than that. It might take a whole series of pictures to show her personality, but I'm not good at taking pictures of people. I prefer dealing with plants and bugs. smile
Very nice portrait. well done.
vz-nostalgia: Do you like anything in particular here, Jamoula?
A very pleasantly smiling artist. I feel i could hang out with her quite happily.
vz-nostalgia: Okay, let me know, when you are next time in Atlanta... I can make it happen. smile
Great portrait!
vz-nostalgia: Do I hear it right from the master of portrait photography himself? smile
Buen retrato.
