With Kirsty as model, yellow did indeed become the 5th colour in this series – after a brief, but futile, attempt to get a deep blue fabric to work. Only later did I realise that the light I was using, being incandescent, doesn’t put out a lot of blue light. So expecting expecting a strong blue glow from it was a bit optimistic. Yellow did the trick though, and produced a more accurate colour than the previous two images. One more to complete this series. Probably electric pink. Probably.
This image of Sharon is the 4th image in my ongoing Translucence series and, as with the others, the colour of the fabric has been a big part of making each image unique. The only complication has been that the colour of the final image is never quite the same as the colour of the fabric used. This stuff was quite definitely purple, but what I’ve got is perhaps closer to pink. The next one will probably be yellow. Probably.
My friend and once regular model, Sarah, decided it was time to come back into the studio and model for me again. So I dug out some of the organza fabric and we set about taking this shot. She held this pose, with an upside down head, six times while I did my usual thing and tried to get the lighting just right. It’s one of my favourite images in a long time. It’s good to have you back in the saddle Sarah.
