blue shadow sepia

this is an image i'm fairly chuffed with...
i talked to the model beforehand and she loves sepia images... and i noticed she had a passing resemblance to ann sheridan, especially in the 1938 photo of her by george hurrell, so we spent some time getting the lighting just right - not easy putting shadow in the middle of a face!
i think she felt a bit self-conscious at first with such a dramatic looking pose and the unworked image doesn't really give the game away as to how dramatic it can look after some major PP...
but this is definately a favourite now, as i think it came out quite well with some major background blurring and darkening and the light sepia tone making it all very dramatic and hollywood...
