fishpond studios - Upstate SC USA
"This magic moment was captured as Maria reclined on a leather sofa basking in the Afterglow of a fulfilling day-long photo session on Memorial Day 2010," Allio explained. "The studio lights had already been packed away and most of the camera equipment was restored to my Think Tank case when this spontaneous scene demanded exposure. The resulting reclining nude figure artwork became one of the most compelling images of the entire photo session."
