Autumn & Percolate
Both Autumn and Percolate have a lyrical way of moving around, and Percolate has amazingly expressive hands as well. I've actually done a previous shoot just concentrating on Percolate's hands. These images are probably prettier than anything else in this blog. I still think that they have a nice rawness, which is most likely due to the fact that there is no re-touching involved here. The lack of re-touching is a hallmark of all the images in this blog- something that I've been trying to get away from lately. Digital offers so many options for changing an image. More often than not, I think that those options can be a detriment rather than an advantage for improving the end result. With film I was often frustrated by the lack of options in the darkroom, but with digital one has to beware of relying too much on the unlimited supply of them.
