Sometimes I’ll sit and stare at an image for hours to see if there’s a cool crop waiting to happen, or if I’ve totally missed the mark just to be sure no one ever sees it. This is one image I thought I totally missed the mark on and I hadn’t looked at it since 2008. I stared at it for awhile a couple nights ago and saw a clever crop.
This was made using a 4×5 Speed Graphic Camera and Polaroid Type 55. The model is Ivory Flame.
I’m posting the final image (the crop) and the one I know I completely missed the mark on. The crop transforms it.
This is what I started with before cropping it. That table just looks so annoying to me compared to her incredible pose.
