Fashion portraiture

Baby Baboon

I liked this one since the very first moments, for obvious reasons I guess...

So, once back home, I rushed to perform a solid classic edition of it that leaved me totally unsatisfied; the picture was too harsh and did not express the sweetness of the scene!

Yesterday I thought about using here the "old" Orton procedure - Orton photos are generated by the overlay of two images of an identical scene. When originated by Michael Orton using slide film, one image is sharply focused and over exposed ~2 stops and the other is very out of focus and over exposed by ~1 stop. Now this is easy to do digitally in Photoshop, GIMP, or other programs. The overexposure and blur levels can be easily controlled.


I'm quite happy about the final result, despite seeing it as ameliorable, and I may confess that, by now, I do keep some sort of idyllic relationship with it.

Well, I'm afraid that we may keep some healthy respect for everyone’s little madness. Btw, concerning myself, I try to believe that such moments don’t happen so often... ;-))))
