Today, Thursday, April 4, 2013, I share with you my 9th photograph of Lindsay Vixen.
This was Lindsay’s second photo session with any photographer.
I took this picture on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 in Sunrise Deli at 1671 Haight Street in San Francisco, California USA. One of the proprietors, Abdelhakim Husien, graciously gave permission for me to take pictures of Lindsay.
I photographed Lindsay with my Canon 5D Mark II DSLR camera that captures pictures at 21 megapixels. Click on this image to see the full size version. I used a Canon 80-200mm L Series F:2.8 zoom lens.
I write a general interest blog. I have a portfolio on Model Mayhem.
I am active on the Facebook social networking site, and I invite you to subscribe to my posts.

As I’ve mentioned earlier on this blog, I now prefer to find my subjects in person as opposed to on Model Mayhem or Craigslist. I used to be too shy to ask people in public if I may work with them, but, thankfully, that’s no longer the case.
During the shoot on Tuesday I photographed two people I encountered along the way. Both shoots were brief at under 20 exposures, but the results were pleasing, and the subjects were happy.
Today, April 4th, I did something I’ve never done before. I saw an attractive and photogenic woman while I was driving my car. I went around the block, parked, and then walked up the the woman and introduced myself. I told her about my photo shoots on Haight Street and asked if she would like to participate. She said that she would, and seemed flattered that I inquired. More than half of the women I ask say yes, so my days of finding models online are coming to a conclusion, because I can tell so much more about a subject by meeting them than by exchanging emails.
