This series of images originates from my recent photo shoot with Alan, however in each case I have created double exposures. For these images I chose two images that were very similar -- perhaps only the hand position was different along with some small movement of the camera as I shot the next frame. One image was copied over the other as a new layer in Photoshop. Then I chose "Color Burn" as the blending mode for the second layer.

I like the resulting images in each case because the blending mode created an eerie feeling, especially in the shots where Alan is looking directly into the camera.

Today's image continues the posts of Alan from my recent shoot. This image has been processed in Photoshop to look like a solarized image. To create the effect I used the Photoshop Curves dialog and elevated the dark end of the spectrum while leaving the rest of the spectrum alone.
A gallery of Alan with solarized images has been added to my website today. The gallery is called "dreamboy".

This is another image from my recent shoot with Alan. Although it wasn't what I was thinking of when we arranged the shot, now his hand and finger positions put me in mind of a magician.

This week's image is from a shoot yesterday with Alan. Alan has a great physique -- although slightly smaller than some of the other models I have worked with in the past. One of Alan's many strong points is the detail in his upper arm, captured in this close-up with strong side lighting.
The image was shoot digitally, converted to grey scale, then toned.
