Affectedly Shy by dansLesprit

Throw Pillows

Available to buy on…

I submitted this as part of an assignment during university. I wanted to capture the feel of the Roaring Twenties (1920s), it’s elegance, , the Charleston (dance), jazz music etc…

If you are interested there are 2 other images called Quietly Confident & Modest Perfection

This is a studio shot using ILFORD 100 DELTA black & white film taken with a Pentax SLR K1000 & converted to digital.
