PS: my friends have also encouraged me to shoot a wider range of subjects (in terms of ages and cultures) -- although i was somewhat limited by who would volunteer for this--so i'll say it's all in constant evolution. I can totally see how many of my nudes perpetuate certain stereotypes of female beauty. I'm working on it. Toward the end of the Sonoma Sessions I was far more inclusive of different body-types and ethnicities. But in all cases, i could feel that my own personal curiosities and interests were what made some shoots better than others.
