Not as intended

Sometimes, when working on a shoot things don't go quite as planned.

In this case it was a shoot for friend/hairstylist Jen Mathison. We were trying to get some photos published in a salon magazine and unfortunately they were not picked up for publication. They were shot in a specific style with simple, high key lighting as per the magazine's creative brief. Unfortunately they were declined and so they have sat unused.

So, after a few months of stewing on them, I decided that they would be best used in some more creative endeavours. Once I decided on the images to alter, I processed them in Photoshop CC using double-exposure, blending layers, and colour mixing techniques. The end result was a set of three, painterly portraits...
