Jade #2 (nude) - ruby glass ambrotype

Postby alexgard » 10 Jun 2017, 23:37

8x10 ruby glass ambrotype

4 seconds exposure, 210mm lens @ f/5.6 (collodion rated about ISO 0.7)

The glass is red and translucent. You can see hints of the red ghue in some parts of the shadows where it is backed against the black backing

You're on a roll with both your muses, Alex: both Jade and the ambrotype.

Thanks fellas. Having worked with jade a little in the past i am slowly getting more comfortable with posing people particulalry nude women as an activity or social thing but the actual posing i have some trouble conceptualising and being creative with the environment. I hope to improve this.
