(edit: Added one more photo to the gallery. It’s not a part of the sequence below, but was from the same shoot. It’s just too good NOT to include.)
Whenever I feel I’ve made a breakthrough on some new technique, I will go back and revisit some of my photo sets from past shoots. I’ve been known to go back 10 years or more and pull a new gem from the pile and polish it up to something I didn’t even know was possible then.
I’ve done that with a set of the lovely FireBitch from 2011. You’ve seen a few of the images from that set in both color and black & white, but this new tone & texture technique works much better for one of the sequences from that shoot than either of the ones I used then.
Enjoy, and you shouldn’t need the warning by now that images after the ‘more’ are not safe for work. Click for the full gallery.
Added after original post. Just too good not to include.
