Well, this post took a little longer than I suggested previously; partly because I got busy and partly because I overhauled this image about three times. I just couldn’t make up my mind on how I wanted the finished piece to look. I finally settled on monochromatic.
This is the only shot from the series I can claim any creativity for. The other shooter had finished and just before the model was preparing to leave I asked if she would be willing to try one more pose for me and I gave her the only direction I had during the whole shoot. I am not 100% happy with my image but I am glad that I finally did speak up as it is one of my favorite shots from the set.
