Gary Melton didn't quite capture what he set out to do: "Gary's work is all about capturing light and shadow so that a photograph's two dimensions appear to be three. It's also about accentuating women's natural beauty, while still giving you hints about their sensuality."

Sorry to say that I was not overwelmed with this collection. I liked the exterior shots and the lighting technique on one of the interior shots. Thanks though to the First Reads giveaway program - I hope someone else enjoys this more.
