Maddie on Silver halide

By blastedkane    
These were all taken at least 10 years ago with a EOS30 on traditional monochrome film and any colours that you may see were done by hand to the final prints which have then been scanned in.

THis was natural sunlight behind with a Gold reflector in front. It was iso1600 film hence the grain

Quite a nice portrait although very grainy, but I would have cropped that diagonal bar out in bottom left of pic.

I agree that the bar may be slightly distracting however this is a scan from a print with no editing.. I could have cropped when printing from the negative, but the composition is as I chose when taking the image. I nted to use the balance between empty space and the weight of the portrait.

I understand what you are saying about the grain, however because this was taken with a reasonably fast film the grain becomes a part of the image. It just goes to highlight some of the difficulties when working with the limitations of the traditional medium.
