"Head in the Clouds"
Jodi Robertson, Ft Lauderdale, Florida
Ahh...Jodi...Very fond memories of her.
Naysayers will say they can dup this on their pitiful "Photoshop". Oh really ?
Hah !...Yeah, I'd like to see them dup the subtle tones, the texture, the grain...Right.
This is a "sandwich". Two negatives. Layered together in the darkroom.
Easy huh ?
...Well. It's labor, really. Thinking. Imagining. And an understanding of how light works. An understanding of converging proportions.
And most important :
Anticipating, while you are shooting, how you want the end result to look !
Combine all that with luck. The clouds just right. The timing just right.
Some shooters said I should've shot this with her nude.
No. Not my point. Nude would serve only as a distraction. Besides, I didn't want some clueless dude gawking, and not seeing !
If I'm going to manipulate the picture, then I'm going to manipulate the audience !...
