Nixi has studied and participated in theater and so has experience in providing expressions for an audience. We worked well together, I think, and with a future session or two under our belts we'll have all the kinks worked out with our directions and posing.
Nixi brought along a friend to the shoot who is also interested in shooting with me, and so we'll probably be able to stage a sword fight for a future shoot. I've done that twice before in the studio, but I'd like to attempt a shoot outside where the models will have more room to move and interact without the need to stay within the framework of the backdrop.
Here's a final shot of Nixi for this iteration of the countdown. Enjoy!
