ARCHIVE 75 – WOMAN WITH HER EYES CLOSED (MONO)

Woman with her eyes closed; 21 Aug 2007.

This is part of a much larger negative – another product, I suppose, of my tendency for getting in close! 

Trying to make it at least one step removed from a straight mono photograph, I’ve reduced sharpness and introduced a digital tone.

F6 with 24mm-85mm Nikkor; Ilford Delta 3200 Professional black and white film rated at 3200 ISO;  manipulated with Silver Efex Pro 2.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      Thank you, Malin! I’m glad it appeals to you – and I suppose that it is getting over towards the kind of portraiture – usually self-portraiture – that you do so well. Thank you again. Adrian 🙂
