In The Studio – In Bed with Marilyn

Inspired by Douglas Kirkland’s White Sheet shoot with Marilyn Monroe in 1961, the softness, the feminity, the innocence and subtle sexuality of Marilyn, we wanted to recreate the ‘feel’ of those iconic photos.  I am totally in love with these White Sheet Boudoir style shots, especially in Black and White and will hopefully be doing…

Black and White Photo Challenge – Perspective

Change of Perspective is the theme for this week’s B&W Challenge, so perhaps the perspective is not really so challenging for some, but for very much so. The building on a funny angle and not symmetrical, seeing the patterns on the floor caused by shadows from the front door…….I see them everyday,but barely notice them.…
