Every Saturday we select a photo from our Flickr pool and feature it right here

Daisy Oak is a 25-year-old photographer living near Paris, France but originally from a city called Annecy in the Alps . Self-taught, Daisy recently became obsessed with portraits and black and white photos. Daisy doesn't like to use professional models. "That's a really interesting part of the work," she says. "Trying to get myself and my model comfortable in awkward situations. I love to do nude photos as well, you can imagine the discomfort."

The photo above is of Dasiy's friend who is a musician. "At first we wanted to take photos with her instrument, because she needed some and she was really scared about posing in front of a camera. But after a while (let's say 2 hours), she got really comfortable and didn't want to stop. So I decided to take some portraits."

At the moment Daisy is using a Nikon D5000 with a 35mm opening at 1.8. She would love to get a Nikon D7000 in the future.

To see more of Daisy's work please check out her Flickr.
