This image of model Morgen Red is from a shoot several years ago, rescanned from the negative and toned. Over the last few weeks I have been reviewing images from prior shoots and reworking them to improve the originals.
It's been a gratifying process. I am discovering that some of my preference for my later work is due to better post production work on the latter work. When I start over with negatives or raw digital files and apply what I have learned over the years to my earlier work, often the results are surprising.

Martial Arts

This image of Chris was captured several years ago on black and white film on a Mamyia 645AF. It was shot in a rented studio with hot lights.
Chris is not as large as some of the other models I have worked with, but he is extraordinarily well-defined. He is also a martial artist. During the shoot we experimented with many martial arts movements and poses.

This reworked image from a shoot some time ago is of a model named Marski. The negative was rescanned and the image was processed in Photoshop to create the Orton Effect, mentioned in other posts to this blog over the last view months. For details about creating the Orton Effect, follow the key word links to the Orton Effect to find the first post regarding its use.

Composite Twins

This image was created by stitching together two separate images of Alan beside each other. I like the fact that they are mirror images without actually being mirror images. For example, if Alan were looking in the mirror at himself the reflected image would show his other hand raised, not the same hand, and the tilt of his torse would be exactly the same, not just similar.
