Lanette the Geisha

Lanette dressed up like Geisha recently at work and asked me to come along and take a few snaps. Pretty convincing if you ask me -- she looks a bit like Bjork! :)

This was with a wide angle lense, up close. I'm a big fan of centering the subject and going for the tunnel vanishing point effect you get when you do this; it reminds me a bit of Kubrick's cinematography when he'd do backwalking tracking shots.

See! Bjork!

A closeup of her eye with the glittery lashes. I don't have a macro lens, so this was a shot with a 200mm lens almost wide open from 6 or so feet away.
