Taken about 25 years ago, with a willing model, where we did a 'time for prints' arrangement.


Taken indoors with either a Praktica MTL5B or a Pentax fit Vivitar camera, but both of them were totally manual cameras. The model was lit by two Courtney flash units, with a sheet of black velvet, used as the backdrop.


The rest of the session were more standard portrait poses, indoors and outside, but I've always liked this one, as it is something different from the rest.


It was taken on Ilford FP4 (no '+' at this time) and was developed in my go to developer at the time, Ilford Ilfosol S.


I hope the print scan looks okay, as my scanner is starting to play up and so I had to crop the bottom of the image slightly.

The shirt has some great details and definitely looks like it's being worn but then headless. Definitely different!

Very much agree with Sebastiaan. Especially enjoy the humour of the idea. :-)
