I'm running out of adjectives on how to compliment someone's work...lighting and processing are just awesome....

Very nice pictures. Great lighting, great focus, clean colours.
On shots one and two. I would prefer to see them looking in to the picture rather than out of it.
The first picture really is "Super"

We hired them from the State Theater in Pretoria - old costumes from stage productions that are no longer in use.


Thanks for the positive feedback.

Yea, i was gonna say those things are GREAT.
Great idea!

There is a renaissance fair, here in Pa, and i know they usually have some pretty nice stuff. 16th Century stuff
I think it would be cool to get some of that stuff for a shoot, but it gets expensive. I had gotten my GF a corsets, and that was 200 bucks.

You need to get those bustles in there. A PROPER lady would rarely show that much skin and never without a bustle.

TARTS!!! But really cute ones!! Great shots,

Superb shots. I'm absolutely in love with the second and third shots. The detail and lighting are phenomenal. Overall, just utterly gorgeous, and the photos aren't bad either.
