Searching for the natural

Back in the summer Cody and I set about creating some portraits and head shots for her modelling agency. She is pushing on with more commercial work and needed some new images for their look books.
You may have seen some of them in Cody's folios.

Whilst those shots have been chosen for their commercial value, my personal favourites are often the frames that I manage to steal when the model isn't, well, modelling, so to speak.
Sure, the collar on the shirt isn't the best. She's been sipping the coffee and the lipstick isn't the best either. The hair on the left is not laying flat, and the earring is hiding behind the hair, but, she was lost in thought for around one or two seconds.
Having worked with her quite a lot, I have become accustomed to seeing the difference between the professional, commercial "Cody Look" and the personal "Claire, Smiling"

I hope you enjoy viewing the image - Colin

No retouching just grading. I added a tiny amount of saturation. I applied unsharp masking during the RAW processing
