Nude photography for me is about creating an atmosphere of complete trust and positive energy. That is what makes the shoot real, brings it alive, and without it photography would just become a practical process which everybody can of course do.
So, you get over it. Being our last production day, I charged up my sore camera and went head on with 18-year-old Yola; an inexperienced, sweet, and eager to please model from a local agency.
This was her first commercial job. She was charming, but clumsy, too, and I couldn't help smiling over her eagerness. Her figure was not fully developed with a little bit of baby fat still visible. So to be honest, I made it easy for her and for me as well. We only shot in the hotel room; some simple sessions using backgrounds I had not used on the trip so far, and then called it a day.
Now it was time to celebrate what had turned out to be a highly successful trip to Argentina. Luba and I had invited our new friends to dinner and we met at the stylish 'El Living' in the hotel. The people of Buenos Aires have a philosophical air about them and we had learned that they are happy to share their ideas and their secrets as long as you relate your own stories in return.
We ordered the best red wines in the building, a huge plate of country cheeses that made my tongue curl with delight, and lived our last hours here in this fantastic city to the fullest.
Muchos Gracias Argentina! Ciao Baby!
Petter and Luba
