Megumi is a local college student and friend of my son. Her exotic beauty is from a combination of Japanese and Ecuadorian genes. The first time I met Megumi, she reminded me of the beautiful Tahitian women found in Paul Gauguin's paintings. I asked Megumi if I could photograph her with a flower in her hair from one of my azalea bushes. She was delighted to do so and was very happy to receive prints and be included in this print exchange. Camera and subject were setup on my back porch and exposure was made with late afternoon ambient light streaming though the screens at about a 90 degree angle. A small mirror on stand was used to open up the eyes. Subject was seated in a white plastic porch chair and a large Photoflex white reflector was used as backdrop.
