Back then I was mainly focused on what I was trying to accomplish. Not much attention was given to their specific input. So, when revisiting this set the other day, I found a nice surprise. Ash and Patricia are very good artists who are very comfortable in front of a camera. For the first time I realized how good of a job they did providing interesting poses. If my execution had been better, we could've made some very strong images.
This set was made when I was still working regularly with Ash. Her friend and fellow creative Patricia joined us for this session inside a storage room where I set up a backdrop of random items on a wall and used a lighting style designed to mimic a spotlight.
As a means of exercising my post editing skills I've been diving back into photos snapped years ago when I was much more active and making new pictures from never before used snaps or re-mastering those previously processed to mostly positive mixed results.
