I have been a long time fan of this photographer, and tried unsuccessfully to get this feel in my own photos. It looks like she is just shooting with the sun at the subject's back, probably with a reflector or flash to bounce light back. My question is more with the overall look and color - is it post processing or has she made a deal with the devil?

Thanks!

These shots are really easy to do. It is a standard desaturated, backlit portrait. Many phoyographers these days come up with a photoshop recipe, apply it to most of their work, and create a certain look unique to their business.

I just pp'd this pic in a few minutes to prove that the process is not very difficult..

Edit: You can slide the blacks to define the eyes more and get an even closer match.
