Here are some shots I took a few years ago of Traci and Erin McQuatters of New York Models. Traci is out of the business and is in music production now. Erin you have seen for L'Oreal, Glamour, Cosmo, Converse, Juicy Couture and even one of the models for the book series Pretty Little Liars (character Emily Fields).
I always think this snapshot style has an added intimacy in that the lighting is the same as if anyone took a shot of their friend...so it brings you closer to being there. Then you add that to crazy beauty, and it brings you closer to a place that maybe you haven't been.
It has been too long for me to remember which camera I took these with. My guess is a Canon 2oD with a 50mm 1.4 lens. No idea the F-stop. I assume the shutter speed is around 1/125 so it could sync with the on camera flash.
