Caught in the Web.

Jessica posed for an impromptu shoot with a fantastic iridescent spider web covered fabric back in 2009.   Only a couple of these shots ever saw the light of day until now.   She had no makeup, no hair styling, just her and the drape in front of a white wall.

Over the ensuing six years, my editing skills have improved significantly so I thought I’d see what I can do with them now.   This gallery is the result.   Enjoy.

It’s that time again.  I’m thinking of making this a weekly post.  This time, we’re diving through late 2011 to experiment with more B/W conversions and edits.  Images below the fold are NSFW.  You’ve been warned.  The gallery from the original shoot is here.

We start with an image that I had passed up at the time I shot it.  Back then, I couldn’t quite get the emotion I wanted to come out.  A bit of work with filters and color.

Nothing Left.

Edits from BettieNLove in rope and stockings.

I’ve been experimenting and working out a new workflow between Lightroom, Photoshop, Vertus LiquidMask and OnOne’s Perfect Photo Suite this week.  What better photos to stare at for hours on end than the lovely Bettie in her rope and stockings.

I have a pretty good workflow now and it’ll only get better when I hear bck from OnOne about why the photoshop and Lightroom plugins for Perfect Photo Suite aren’t working.  Loading and saving the images separately breaks up the creative flow a bit, but not enough to completely derail the process.

Enough babbling about software, I know all of you are just here for the pics, so here you go.  Enjoy.   And as always, NSFW behind the break.

Cropped and brought out the colors quite a bit.  I love her tattoos.

Experiments in Black and White.

I’ve been going through some of my better photos from the last couple of years and revisiting my techniques for B/W conversion.  I think this one works much better than the old technique.  I was able to bring out the details on her jacket and give her some hair back.

Experiment in new B/W techniques.
