With over 200 shots from this shoot I guess I just was overwhelmed. It's good that I decided to "clean out" Aperture; it forced me to go back through every image and re-evaluate. I think the reason I passed over this one the first few times is that there were several issues that needed to be solved in photoshop. It was a difficult image to process.Buried treasure...wonderful find.
Thanks Fred. There is a new and very popular tapas bar in the area that has an art deco decor. I sold a 24x20 of this photo to the owner today. He's going to hang it over the bar. I'm pretty stoked about that.Lee is simmering in this one. Very nice indeed.
Thanks James. When I first started doing these Hurrell style photo's I spent a ton of time working on getting the look as close as I could. Woody really helped out with some suggestions for the post processing.Cool Post process
Thank you very much Philippe.....it's supposed to be 40s style though!! .......:biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:Stuart, great pose, and you really nailed the feel of the 50s with the lighting and the post-processing!
John, that is very kind of you. Much appreciated!!Absolutely STUNNING!
Wow Stuart, I checked out your site and you have some of the best B&W's I've ever seen.

Maurice, Lee should get most of the credit. She is a fantastic model/actress and is amazing to work with. Thanks!absolutely stunning...
Thank you Graeme. Three weeks ago I was so ready to move on from this style, but it really was fun. I may do more of it again at some point. For now I think I will just make sure I haven't missed any more "keepers" from my previous shoots.This "period" of your work is some of the best you have produced Stu.......... well, it is for me.
This image has a great feel to it............ excellent lighting and processing.
Beautiful in every way.............. :redface: :redface: :redface:
