I shot this photo using my Nikon D3 camera and Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 lens on a hot day in Lake Tahoe. The subject of this image is of one of my friends, Mackenzie. One may not be able to tell, but Mackenzie was actually laying on a hammock when I took this shot. I was captivated by the pensive, far off look she had in her eyes and the way her hair dramatically unfolded on her left. After the shooting of this image, Mackenzie went on to become a highly successful print and runway model, fulfilling the aspiration she is likely conveying in her dreamy expression.
