Meet Vanya









The second test at Sydney park with Vanya from Priscillas. I was pretty exhausted at this stage, the light was fading and we had to continually stop for the rain - still, it was all worth it for that first shot dark profile shot.

Thanks so much for all your kind remarks, means so much to me to have this support and encouragement.

Model: Vanya @ Priscillas
Photography and Styling: Moi!

If you want to know where any of the clothes are from I'll answer any questions in the comments section.

Where's the jumper from in the 3rd picture?
You're such an inspiration!
how do you manage to make the photos have that edge, rather than just look like a photo where someone looks tacky and vain?

cleo said...

adorable:))which camera are you using???wonderful pics and i adore the model

me said...

you seem to have your own style of photography already, i was looking at them thinking thats a Zanita! :) x

Zanita said...

anon: Thanks so much! I think that pictures are beautiful where the subject appears to be unaware of being photographed - or perhaps like they've only just glanced at the photographer.
The jumper is by Estrella

cleo: You can see in my 'About Me', I use a Nikon D60.

Yeah - these shots are pretty awesome. The lighting that you got along the bridge of the nose/forehead and top of the lip is amazing. (1st one)

And, this girl is a STUNNER! wow - the more you look at her, the more she grows on you. I hope she goes far!

Great photos!!

Katie said...

yeah i liked precious but overall i felt that they ignored the problem she had with her father raping her. to me that seemed like the biggest issue for her and i didn't feel like it was dealt with much. idk. either way, the whole thing was very moving.

&i keep saying this but i really admire your photographic skill. i see a very clear aesthetic coming through.

John Troxel said...

these are so lovely Zanita! Well done! I agree, photographs look so much more honest when it seems as if the subject is unaware of the photographer. a glimpse into the life and scenario. you're very talented!
