I initially did this series as sort of a creepy, Halloween inspired set, but this one seems to have taken on more meaning, maybe because you can read the headstone? This young man looks to have passed away at the young age of 24 in WWII. This cemetery is on the Hualapai Indian Reservation, so this fellow was likely a member of that tribe. Anyways, I love it and wanted to share. This was naturally lit. The sun had just set in the direction she is looking. The shadowing on her face is from the tree and large, rocky hill camera left.

Nice shot Lisa. Really like the mood conveyed by the lighting and B&W conversion.

Lisa, that shot is awesome. It would be fun to shoot with and without your daughter and make the bottom of her dress semi transparent and more ghostly. Bring a smoke machine too.

It's a little unfair that you have great talent AND a lovely daughter who will willingly pose for you.

Great stuff as always.
