Earlier this month I posted my favorite photo of Alex in the leather chair. This is another in the series.

This image comes from a series that was the brainchild of the model. Dwain imagined that he was floating upward, being drawn into the heavens. As the series proceeds the images look more and more like his body is floating upwards against the black background, but this image where he is simply rising from his knees and looking upward is one of the most arresting and powerful.

A few months ago I bought a small round backed leather chair to sit in the corner of my kitchen near the island. Thought was it would be a nice place for dinner guests to sit and watch me cook, because we all know how much dinner guests want to be in the kitchen when you are cooking, no matter how distracting that might be to the cook.
But in the last two photo shoots I have made a different use of the chair by moving it around the house and photographing my models squirming around in it.
This shoot with the chair in a dimly lit corner of the living room the images came out a little more flat than I like. I compensated by under saturating the files and increasing the contrast a bit.
In the final photo I used the Photoshop channel mixer to turn the image into a black and white.
