Nude in Motion

Nude in Motion.

The idea behind this image was to produce a ghost like image. The model was moving and I was shooting with a relatively long exposure. This combination of motion and and slow speed coupled with a slight push on the film to give me some graininess, all resulted in this ephemeral image.

One light was used, it was placed to the right of the frame.

This is an analog image shot on high speed film and developed in Rodinal. The developed film was scanned into Lightroom. The contrast and exposure were adjusted and the image was cropped slightly.
