Last thursday I did a small seminair at the photoclub Almere, Charlotte was so kind to be my model during this seminair.
Lately I have been working on series in which I let me be inspired by the old dutch masters, so also in this serie, called Timeless.
Shot during the seminair.

Beautifully taken shots and a very pretty subject, you seem to have captured the depth of her sole.

I recall reading about how we as photographers can learn from looking at paintings by master painters, especially from the past. I believe it was Eisenstat the famous Life photographer that said he learned ideas about lighting and composition, just from looking at old paintings.

I've always thought that to be good advice.

Frank, the use of light in your portraits is excellent. Also the poses are very good, natural, unpretentious.

hi frank, i love all of your work, man i wish you would do seminar somewhere close to new orleans!! anyway, in photo 5 what are you using to get that subtle back light? is it a reflector, a light far from the subject, it doesn't seem to be a softbox, because that would light up to much. thank you, john

Really nice work Frank! I've been playing around trying to recreate your effect, but just can't seem to get the same level of softness (light)/sharpness (model) you have. Can you share your setup/post processing for this series? By the way, I checked out your youtube video on the elinchrom octa - very nice..
