The Pure & The Tainted

well, Ive spent the best part of 3 hours getting to this stage. trying to get the lamp to glow has been a right royal pain in the arse. Anyway here it is. Ive layered it up (10 layers at least for the bloody lights-there must be an easier way) then about 4 or 5 for the main image. It was still very light at this point of the shoot but I wanted to darken it up or at least give the impression there was still some sun out there (so soft light blending mode has been used a lot). The inspiration for the shoot was Brooke Shaden but I like to add my own stamp to an image, the Shaden image is here. So other than a pretty girl and a lamp, its different. I have also tried to add a reflection from the the side of the lamp, it is there but its very subtle so it needs  a bit of work.

Its all soft and summer evening (hopefully) and possibly with a hint of fairy tale. I feel I am pushing myself and I'm more important persevering when many a time in the past I would have a hissy fit and left it alone.

Tomorrow night I am venturing out to The Torbay Photographers and Model get together, I don't usually mingle but there are some models who I am may want to work with, so I'm making an effort.
