Fuji TX2 + Ilford FP4+
Model : Barth
The aim of the dark background experiment in the latest series of studio sessions was to see if I could get the (well-lit) subject to emerge seemlessly and gradually from the texture. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in this shot I think. In others, the light was too hard for a real gradual appearance but here it totally works. This informs my lighting schemes for future studio sessions, as well as deliver a wonderful portrait.
