PEOPLE 175 – MANNEQUIN ON QUEEN’S ROAD (MONO + COLOUR)

 

 

Mannequin on Queen's Road, Bristol
.
Mannequin in a shop window along Queen’s Road in central Bristol; 17 July 2014.

This headless mannequin with her fantastically patterned dress was immediately striking as I walked by, and a composition comprising this patterning, and her forearms and hands, came to mind.

Then, post-capture, her arms and hands were converted into silhouettes against a paler backdrop (in which dashed lines from the shop’s display remain), to retain the human element – because take away her arms and hands and we could be looking at a jazzily decorated coffin!  And then restoration of the dress’s pale blues, to further enliven the design.

Canon G11 PowerShot at 140mm (equivalent); 400 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Push Process by 3 stops preset, with selective restoration of colour.

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.
