Pitch Black Queen by nineteen68

Pitch Black Queen

Dudler, thanks. I love the BW version. Its almost Lovecraft esq, normally I wouldn't have gone for a white vignette but it just works so well. Willie, I meant so the image was square, not rectangle portrait. Ive managed it a number of times in CC by extending the canvas and using the content aware fill but it just looked weird, perhaps I need to practice it a bit more.

Willie its fantastic. The darkness I was looking for, thank you. Did you use CC2015? or a different version of photoshop?

Carbonite by nineteen68


Hi Moira, Tanya & Pamela. I appreciate your honesty. Its an idea Ive had for a while and it really does need developing. Last night I took a few dozen images based on this concept, including a face breaking through latex, hands pushing out of the stomach etc. I shot both front and back and having had a look through them today and I need to be more adventurous as I'm not 100% happy with any of them, which is my fault entirely. The concept itself has plenty of mileage it just needs (a lot) work. Thank you all.

Erasing my final memories by nineteen68

Erasing my final memories

Thanks Moira, the model is young and relatively inexperienced she has done fashion and bright fluffy photography before so this was all new to her. However I think was absolutely remarkable and took to it like a duck to water. I see what you mean aswell about the optical illusion.

She is the Dark

Im not sure if she was annoyed with me, she agreed to do the shoot in the dress in the middle of january but forgot about how cold it would be early morning on the moors. forgetting the pose could it be evening?

Ghosts by nineteen68


Thanks Brian. I did think that while shooting it but decided to go the whole hog and blur it all. Something to try again. Ive been plagued with after thought on a number of shots from this shoot, ones I consider to be great shots but they could have been excellent. I appreciate the thoughts.

A truth we can't unknow

Thanks Moira, as always the mods are great, I did try a few crops myself but didn't like any of them. The cobwebs were amazing. Just down from this window (behind where Im shooting from) is another window covered in vines, we got some brilliant images there including the slugs. Its amazing how terrified models get of creepy crawlies Smile

Driving by nineteen68


Thanks Dudler. The material is solid close up but is quite transparent with a good strong light behind it. I will be exploring this line of thought a bit more. Some of the shot I took during this session I deliberately heavily blurred (is that even English?)the images which exaggerates any shape even more so. When I was out on Friday I went and more more material, Voile I think its called, very see through and lots of colours to experiment with.

Hi Moira, I did hum and ha about getting rid of it, in the original its all there but for some reason I decided to chop it in half so consider it gone Smile

Christine Blochead

Thanks Moira, Tanya & Willie. I dont suppose I was going for an exact copy of the original, I always like to add my own twist. The mods are great as usual. I must admit I never give the glove a second thought other than they would add an edge to the shot now all I have in my head is Homepride Whiplash Fred. The possibilities that it opens up are quite disturbing Smile Im doing a similar shoot on Sunday so I had better go prepare. Thank you.

Thanks Moira. I do love the mono version, Im about to upload my own BW version. I have a few different versions (actually quite a few) with different masks on and the legs in different positions. Spider baby may follow. Thanks again.

I hear you whisper Alibi's

hi Keith and Dudler, thanks for the feedback. I tend to use a lot of old film cameras, toy/plastic cameras because of the imperfection, soft focus being one of them. I focused in on the villains and blurred Sophia as I thought it added more to the scene. The camera was used a number of times earlier in the shoot and the results are pretty sharp.

Thanks for the edit Dudler, I see what you mean. Ive added sections to images before in photoshop but for some reason it never crossed my mind to do it this time.

Thanks again

Strength from Pain by nineteen68

Strength from Pain

Hi Paul. I'll start with the last part, I scan it and then generally sell them. There is a large market for instant shots. The quality is not there I agree totally, but for me that is part of the charm. The colours are are variable but again thats what I feel makes the images unique. I am also a great believer that the image doesn't always have to be pin sharp if its art, whereas industrial photography would have to be. The results are quite unpredictable with instax much like Polaroid before it, so I suppose again thats part of the charm for me as you never know what you are going to get.

Thanks Dudler. I must admit I tried to find the EXIf data but it appeared to have disappeared. So I must have done something to do that. Im used to working to different models, the location I had wandered through many times before (usually in the tanking rain) and it was somewhere I had wanted to shoot with a model. I'm never afraid to experiment, sometimes I over do it. One thing I did on this shoot, more than any other was to go with a book of images I wanted to capture as apposed to just turning up and winging it as it were. The majority of the shoot was (hopefully) been heavily influenced by Brooke Shaden but this shot in its original form was taken just so the model could have some images in case things went majorly wrong with the edits (I have yet to start) on the images I went to shoot. The first mod was the one done by my wife, so she will be pleased. Thank you again.

Breedless by nineteen68


Thanks Willie & Dudler ( Ilke both mods) I did look at cropping the image but didnt really like the crops I created so left it alone as I suppose I liked the off balance look to it. I've experimented a bit more with the gradient map on PS on another couple images and the results can be quite spectacular and varied. No doubt this set will keep me out of mischief for a day or two. The Blade Runner reference was a mistake, I was trying to remember a make-up idea and went for the yes (Daryl Hannah esq) instead of across the mouth -still thinks happen for a reason Smile Thanks again for the comments.

Thanks Paul. I think I did achieve what I set out to do. You could be right with the lighting. Currently the only lighting I use is the light from the projector so introducing another light source, even a weak one could be interesting. Thank you

Hi Moira & Willie. Thank you so much for the comments. Ive been honing my technique a bit. I did another shoot after this and forgot part of my tripod and and I was disappointed in the some of the results. Now Moira, I love the black all around and I know we've had discussions about this before and I agree in most cases its a matter of how we see things.

Hi Guys, thank you so much for the feedback. When I uploaded it, I thought the ring may have been an issue> Unfortunately it wont come off (Im trapped) I did sort of try to remove it but after a bit of tinkering I decided to leave it, I also felt it showed that it added something else to the shot. Willie, I like most of the mod but the edit to the ring doesn't work for me-sorry. Thank you all.

Trapped in a place with no name

Hi Moira, thanks. I felt the basic image need something and the thing that came to mind was an eruption of some sort. Like I have said I have seen this type of thing but never got to grips with it, so I played a bit today and I had given up after version 1 but it just looked pants. But I went back to it and clicked and pressed and other things and something started to happen and progress was made. I agree though it needs a lot of work.

Fear by nineteen68


Hi Paul, the title is related to the track i was listening to whilst editing, which how I name the vast majority. I think i tend to create lots of abstract images with this project as it lends itself to abstraction and its sort of the way my mind works but I appreciate it won't be everyone's cup of tea.

Im also having a load of issues with Chrome at the moment but use IE as a back up.
