A picture from my recent shoot with Wicked Talent model Julia Vicious, who looks anything but in this one:
I loved both these shots and was going to post them separately, but the little voice told me to make a duo-montage with them - the first such image I have ever made. I don't know if the little voice is my Muse or just an old head trauma, but when it speaks, it pays to listen.
To wax metaphorical, the world of dreams is black and white (for most people: I dream in surrealistic color) and the waking world is colorful, hence the shift. I tried it all three ways. The full b/w version was also nice, but I like this better. The full color version didn't have the impact of the mix or the full b/w.
In retrospect I wish I had used a tripod and gotten identical framing - as you can see there is some divergence (look at the distance between her elbow and the bottom edge of the frame.) But this was not a planned image: she just is really good at holding still.
