Here's a small effort to keep traditional film photography alive.
Doville in B/W - HP5+ developed in Rodinal for some grainy effect. Pardon the watermarks.

i like the composition. It is applealing in every way except maybe for her feet soles showing up. It's either bad lighting or the studio floor is very dirty:bsmilie:

Thanks for yr comments. Always had problems with the feet. The shoot was going quickly and working from top down, by the time I get to the feet, the head has gone somewhere else :bsmilie: Picture was shot with single strobe. She was lying on a furry mat, hence the mottled pattern on the floor.

Yeah great shot!

Pity about the feet... all she had to do was angle them forward...

P.S. Photographers try to avoid shooting the soles of the feet... firstly they're generally unappealing... secondly its offensive to some cultures!
