Chasing away

My Flickr friend andy_57 excels in any photographic genre he tackles, but his specialty remains model shoots. This is a recent favourite of mine, and one that he picked himself as one of his twelve best of the year (do check out that amazing dozen, here). Taking her place in front of the camera is his own daughter Laura, and she shows that she can model like the best of them. The smile, extended to her eyes, is a ray of light in these dark days, the red hat is a touch of brilliance, the lighting is as great as always with Andy, and the composition is excellent, in particular in terms of anchoring (wall to the left), negative space, and use of golden ratio.
