Despite my better judgment, I am submitting yet another Pixie photo. For a photographer that has constantly battled model issues, I place great value on anyone who steps in front of my camera. I have learned to dismiss the acceptance of my work as a whole. However, I do get disappointed when people seem to shun my models. Pixie plays a huge part in my growth as a photographer because she is the only real model I have ever worked with and she is incredible to boot. My work with her has not been widely accepted here on this site yet it means so very much me. Quite frankly this pisses me off. Not for the reasons you may think, however. It is because I am protective of those who allow me to shoot them. Especially those that play such an integral part of my creative endeavors as Pixie does.
I have spoke about photo sessions and the shot before. There is always a certain shot I want when I work with a model and everything else is just a bonus. This was the shot I wanted that day for reasons that are not only personal to me but her as well. After revisiting the set I decided to share it.
She is amazing and I would like to re-introduce you to her. Please look closely at what she is doing here because it is important on levels that do not entirely reside on the surface.
Thank you, Pixie.
