i was looking at some of the images of kori rae (at el mirage) that i shot during golden hour, then decided to mess with one of them. the images in this series are, basically, candids-- kori was posing for rick and i was behind her and off to the side admiring (amongst other things) the way the light was playing on her. i took some shots while she had her attention directed towards rick, then between rick's shots, i called to her and she turned.
while looking at this image, which is fairly dramatic with the sun so low in the sky, i wanted to see what it would look like in monochrome. so i channel mixed it to b&w... then, after saving that image, i added a violet photo filter.
i dunno... the monochromes have an otherworldly ethereal feel to them. and the b&w image is almost film noirish.
here they are: from color to b&w to photo filtered. (and for anyone nit-picking, i'm aware the horizon is a little canted.)
