    Thank you. I was using classic paintings as the inspiration for the pose. I am working on a vintage / modern beauty project. Thanks for the feedback.

    I would love to see the portable darkroom you are using to make these. Beautiful images.

    Is the white spot in each a place where your darkslide is touching your plate?
