Be creative, get closer, have the emotional layer established. Do you remember ?? Everything is true in this picture. Without emotional layer there would have been no trust at all and the picture would have never been taken. And i could get closer to her, very close. So close i could smell her skin, smell the odor of her fantastic blond hair and we got creative with a scarf. Wrapping her blond hair in that way costs a lot of time and my fingers are still working :). The rest was easy. A bit of light, a camera and a lens. You know, i like the simple approach to get the results i have in my head.
