I am strongly motivated by an image I saw years ago on the internet. It was a lovely Victorian nude bye Chad Michael Ward. I intend to give the theme a try. The first thing I must figure out is the lighting to be used. In this regard, I mentioned the project to Kat who immediately volunteered her assistance. Kat is not the model I intend to use -- I still have to find the magic lady.
Kat came over at 10pm for a 20 minute shoot as a lighting test ... all I had to do is ply her with a cup of hot tea. The lighting almost works ... however the two light set up I used needs modification for the "real" shot. Here are two of the images from the very short session -- it partly illustrates the style of the final shoot with with the appropriate model. The wardrobe will be quite different .. although the flower concept will probably remain .. they are obviously "dropped on" and not properly done for this test.
