You know, I loved always Gary Cooper as a gunfighter in High Noon. They are always ready to draw. They are always like this… Which means that the outline of the body, there is daylight behind them. When you have your hands there [on the body], you don’t see the outline of the body, the little waist, the big shoulders. So my models often stand exactly, or what I hope will be the gunfighter’s stance.
