Portraits of Rivka (without pearl earring)

Portraits of Rivka, from “The girl with the pearl earring” (Vermeer, Dutch painter).
See my previous post.
This is from the serie test photo’s we made, before we went in my studio for the “real painting”.
Now I had found a real lookalike of Vermeers girl, I also wanted a so realistic as possible Vermeer lighting. Even with the same reflections as on the “pearl” (selfmade of a wooden bead).
From the first testshot i was impressed about Rivka’s photogenicity. I suspected it, but not so strong. Her penetrating, but sensitive/vulnerable gaze, it felt if she looks right through the camera in my soul… Not any shy or camera fear.
I only asked Rivka to connect and making eye-contact with me via the lens.
This photo’s were created a quarter after we started shooting.

I hope I can show you a lot more portraits of her!

Btw; thank you very much for the (nearly ) 50 votes on “The girl” !!
