Finally I can publish the images that I spent so much time on during the last months!
For one of my assignments this semester I had to shoot a series of portraits of smokers. This had to be done in black and white on a large format camera, including processing, scanning and finally retouching which for the most part meant countless hours of removing dust, scratches and all this other stuff. All in all every single one of those images meant 5-6h of retouching.
At the same time I was shooting the large format images I was also producing digital images with my DSLR - which is why I'll show you wonderful colored portraits of smokers for the next couple of days.
I'd like to begin with this portrait of Jacqueline. Many thanks to you!
With this I wish you a happy 2014!
