Almost Home

I now feel like I almost know the way again.  The comforting hum of tires on familiar roads.  Almost home again.

Scan and crop of a 4×5 Ilford 4×5 negative.  There seems to be a slight tilt, perhaps the back wasn’t aligned properly.  It wasn’t intentional, but I like that the focus fades a bit toward her feet.

The Center Does Not Hold

The center does not hold, everything falls apart.

Scan of an Ilford Delta 4×5 negative, shot with a bit of a front lens board tilt for selective focus. Gridded medium sized soft box to frame right.

You May Emerge From This Moment

I’ve seen images like this done many times.  You put a model on a riser, wrap a long draping fabric around her waist, and create the illusion of extended height.  It’s a compelling illusion.  So I asked Caitie if we could try to do something similar and our take on it might be something slightly different.  We tried many different poses and so many of them are beautiful and engaging, but for some reason this morning, this particular shot took a hold of me and I ran with it.

Hope you enjoy this morning’s artful adventure!

Nude, Seated on Rustic Table

Simple nude study with indirect window light on a rustic table.

Scan and cropped from a 4×5 Ilford HP5+ Negative.  Developed in Kodak D76 resulting in a beautiful, creamy, nearly non-existent grain.
