Yesterday, Marieke was back for another photo shoot which we

This lovely portrait of Jolien in the funniest of Zenni glasses
concludes her photo shoot.
I wish to thank Jolien for her fine, natural way of posing and also
for the stamina displayed during two and a half hours of non stop
posing in over 100 glasses. Not every model is given to that.
The same goes for the results of the posing in glasses way
beyond Jolien's own mild prescription. When looking at many
portraits behind strong glasses one is lead to beleive that Jolien
is a real high myope and the glasses are her own.
Hat off for this lady behind crystal veil!
A word of thanks is also due to Andy for supporting his
wife during the afternoon. Andy served as an invisible beacon
for Jolien and I look forward to hear which pair of glasses
won the competition. Sincere thanks to both of you!
Real team work - Jolien's husband Andy was instrumental by keeping
the mirror in the upright position required. Andy also gave his first
impression about the merits of the various frames. Many high myopic
clients in opticians shops have to rely on the opinion of either the
optician or their husband. Jolien only has mild myopia in everyday
life but here in -8 glasses she needed the feedback. Some opticians
offer video images to help their clients with the frame choice and my
portraits provide a similar assistance to my models
Glasses: Zenni 4428
Two years ago I did an extensive photo shoot with Nel in her own
Zenka glasses with clips in many colours. At some stage in the photo
shoot we used a big mirror with a solid rim, creating double portraits.
Here the procedure is repeated with a big rimless mirror that was part
of a small exhibition with glasses in the 1980's. Jolien is posing in a
frame that is now out of stock. The glasses were used to great effect
in many previous photo shoots - Carla, Farishta and Nanda spring to
mind - and Jolien was eager to give them a try. What makes these
glasses special is the standard 1.57 floating lens, a centimeter thick at
the edge and effectively barring the peep inside

Most glasses out of which the models can choose are
fitted with -8 lenses. Last year I ordered five frames in
a higher prescription, especially for high myopic ladies.
These glasses were first used in the Petra photo shoot.
Lens thickness is 12 to 13 millimeters at the edges
