Bondage at bed-time for gorgeous Aria- tied up tight in her silk pyjamas!
This set was actually one of the first in the year-long "Hywel figures out how
to shoot photos to an acceptable RE-standard using available light", shot back in
December 2015. I'd put off processing it because my original intention had been
for it to be in black and white, but the samples I had processed looked better in
colour. (I struggle with making black and white artwork, despite liking a lot of
black and white photo art).
I tried various recipes and channel combinations, but nothing quite got me to
the way I'd wanted the black and white versions to look. And every time I started
again, I kept thinking how nice the colour versions looked. So in the end I abandoned
the monochrome monomania in favour of the soft northern winter window light and
warm fill that I'd used on set in the first place!
Which is why it's taken me a year of playing around and failing to find the
black and white look I'd imagined before actually putting these pics up for you!
