The pictures are great, you have a great eye, but honestly, I like better what you can show in Olivia and Megalyn pics than in hers, when I see this picture I see they are great takes, but the model dont express anything, with all your other pics (including olivia, meg, beach, or those big black
guys) you transmit more.

Still a great job!

I absolutely LOVE that first photo Tao, I think it's so simple yet so stunning! GREAT WORK!!

NB: I changed the layout and took some pictures away when I added the link to the final shots from the shoot, so some of the above comments reference pictures that are no longer there.

I agree with the anonymous user comment up top. The shots themselves are fantastic - love the colors and backgrounds! Dominique is great on screen, yet in photos, and not only yours, I don't seem to be able to feel much from them. The two you posted on the blog are great though, along with IMG_8264.

A question to Chrissy and to the other anonymous, why you think this happen?, I mean i notice this too, and its obvious not Tao because his shots are really great and he is a awesome photographer, very creative, why you guy think that she doesnt transmite to much?

I would say she has no intensity.. or maybe that would just be me watching ANTM too much haha :) But if he takes a photo of Olivia, it's stunning because she has such a strong personality, but I don't see that in Dominique.. and this is really weird for me to say 'cause I LOVED her in "Girl" and that's one of my favourite movies. Love the photos though.

nice photos. but I dont think she has an interesting expression in her face. they are still very beautiful, you're a great photographer.. but she might not be your best motive.

To anonymous,

Basically Cecilia said it.
I think all of Tao's photos on here and on his site capture an essence of the person he's taken a picture of; with Dominique, she just doesn't portray much (not on screen, but in photo). There's just not a whole lot of emotion emitting from her, and it's almost monotone.

Yes I think it goes like they already said, and its incredible, becasue you have three beautiful womans (olivia, megalyn and dominique), and the cam show their beauty, but show something else, ther are pictures you have there of people not so beautiful that can trasmit you a lot and are incredible!, I love the pictures, but I think that your work always goes beyond of a simple shoot of a moment or a situation.
