You really Must View Large On Black to appreciate the mood and textures of it.
This is definitely a big departure from my normal work... Normally I don't shoot models. However I have had this image in my mind for ages now and finally I got the various parts of the puzzle together for a fun shoot on Thursday night.
Thanks to Mandy & Oat for their help on this, both of you were great!
This is the first time I have pre-visualised an image to the extent where I have a crystal clear image of every detail in my mind and my challenge is to use lights and camera to recreate the image. It's come out pretty close to what I was envisioning.
If you would like to see how this shot was done, then visit this blog post to see the video of the shoot as well as how it was post processed.
