Swirling

Swirling

I had my model swirling around with a parachute to create some dynamic movement. I used a lot of grain to mimic older high speed film that had been pushed to a higher speed.

One light was used, it was placed to the left of the frame and in front and off to the side. of the model.

The contrast and exposure was adjusted and the image was cropped and rendered to Black & White using Lightroom’s Black & White sliders.
