Adriana this is just gorgeous, love the lighting and detail, and of course, the divine Miss B :)
Thanks Tracey, I’m only getting around to editing more photos from this shoot. Certainly had lots of fun that day :-)
The treatment on this one is what drew me in. It looks really old! Beyond the treatment, the photo itself is pretty amazing, well done A.
Thanks Ade, the location is really old and those marionettes equally so; so I couldn’t think of a better way to show the scene than to create an ‘old’ photo. :-)
Quite a remarkable shot with the light streaming in, Adriana. The visual story and metaphor or symbolism appeal to me very much! I don’t know much about treatment, but I"m sure that what you did makes this an even more compelling image.
Thank you Jan, there’s certainly a lot to be seen in this story. The ‘treatment’ was simply some of my textured images overlaid on the original photograph at varying opacities and blending modes. It’s all trial and error and no two photos are the same. So glad you like this :-)
Ah, I wondered if the marionettes in the background were that old and 3D! Good to read your response above.
Oh yes, they were old and I’ve never seen so many marionettes in one place. Miss Bertie is a dream to work with and it was she who found this magical location :-)
Love your grammar, Adriana (“it was she who found this”). And I would enjoy perhaps finding a model that others knew. Someday…
What a beautiful image Adriana, I love the tones and textures :-)
Thanks so much Matt, so glad you like this :-))
Love what you’ve done here Adriana. Beautiful image and location! (and model, of course :)
Thanks Mel! The great model goes without saying! hee hee :-D
Oh this is one of my favourite images ever, yes a big statement but it is just so incredibly evocative and haunting
gosh perfection xx
Wow! Really?! Wow! Thank you! xx
