Sarah Louise (Top Model #2)

Another shot from my shoot with Sarahloiuse. The lady on this post and this post. I didn't get round to going out today even though I had so much time on my hands. I think I'm still struggling to get used to London life after a long relaxing holiday in a very hot country.

WOW! bruv I like this shot, departure from your norm. Where do you guys find these women to pose for you ? Where did you shoot this ?
Jide Alakija: Thanks Johnny. Yup a bit of a departure, it's one of my experiments again. Sarahlouise is a very good and inspiring photographer and model. So this was one she actually planned herself. I was given the easy job of photographing her. This was done down in Worthing, just on the beachfront.
ADe likes this very much
Jide Alakija: Thanks Ade.
Your pictures of this girl are getting better and better. This is the best so far and I’m sure there will be more. The model has great potential.
Jide Alakija: Thanks David. Happy New Year. I think the more I work on these the more opportunities I find with them.
Nice!!how was Lagos???????
Jide Alakija: Thanks Dami. Lagos was relaxing and dirty. No petrol, no light, loads of traffic I mean what else can I ask for on my Christmas holiday!

Great shot. As a model (she being one not me), I expected to get some feeling from her facial expression.

Hey Jide, you won't believe how cool it is here. I guess harmattan came late. Nice work and it was great being your 'assistant' for a day.

Beautifully done, the soft focus all around her is a great touch.

the soft focus really adds to the shot...!
though it could be a LITTLE brighter i think...

I like this. It seems moody, perhaps because it's a darker than expected shot. Her pose looks a little uncomfortable though, not quite relaxed enough to look natural. It makes me think ouch! that can't feel good. But I like everything else about it.
killer moodiness with the dark touches and grey highlights...my fave of the three with her in the shot....85/10
This is my favourite of the three pics of her. I like the reflecting light in the rock where she has got her hands. I also like the white in her eyes that really grabs my attention
