I like to find girls that want to be in pictures - not too hard to find - and this is Lisa. She worked with me at a resturant in Issaquah as a waitress.
We went to this abandoned old farmhouse near my home in Sammamish. We were nearly arrested (a police car pulled up and a police officer interrogated us). None of the shots that i love most from that set were posed. This shot was only very candid and I caught it as she was looking out the door into the field beyond. When I picked up the camera and asked her not to move, the wind blew that hair across her face and I snapped it.
The Mamiya is a low contrast lens, I guess, and I deliberately leave it flat because I like how soft it looks. This is one of my favorites, and really defines my style.
