Victorian Bride by hever Victorian Bride by hever
I took this photo with heavy influence by Nadar--this is the original photo that I later printed on canvas: [link]
My goal was to make it look period specific.

Very beautiful picture! The black and white really enhances the emotional appeal; everything about it is just lovely. :)

I'm not sure if I commented on this already, but thank you so much for posting this beautiful photograph. Something about the subject inspired a character...which in turn inspired a world of characters...and then an entire world. ^^ (Yeah, I'm into writing.) But I just have to remark that you could see so much depth in her eyes! So lovely =]

Thank you so much for your comment. I'm glad that my photo was able to inspire you. I'd be interested to see what you've come up with or you could tell me about it if that would make it easier :)

Mmm, it's really nothing much...the whole idea is probably just going to stay crammed in my head execpt for being on paper. ^^ But even so, I still love the photograph ^^

You have given a modern style to an "ancient" photo :)
It seems created in our reality :P
Good work!

Very nice composition/set up. Gives a feeling of traveling back in time. As a suggestion, maybe a full black background would've raised the expression of "seriousness" in this. Otherwise nice job :clap:

This photo was the first step to a larger product. The background was later painted in using traditional methods: [link]

Wow! Stunning job recreating it! At first, I was drawn to this because I thought it was an old photo from oh so many years ago! Great job once again! :clap:

You captured the mood of antique cabinet cards perfectly, it doesn't really matter that her hair is a bit short.

There is just something about this photo to me that makes it catchy to the eye. Maybe it's the contrast of black and white or perhaps the figure herself but this is definitly a peice that makes you do a double take in the details. The way the photo looks posed dosen't deflect from it at all either as the way most posed pictures do and the effort on making it look as though it's a period peice was nicely and quite effectively done. She most certainly has that air to her. I took a look at the painting as well and the technique sounds pretty interesting. Definitly an awesome piece. Nice work :thumbsup:

That's beautiful, would maybe look good with a bit of sepia and so forth to make it even more period?

Thanks...I haven't digitally manipulated this piece because it's one stage of a project that was done entirely in the darkroom.

One of the most beautiful portraits I've seen in a long time. I ADORE the costume in the context of the way it is lit... Have to agree about her hair, to some degree. If you hunt, you can find older portraits of women with their hair down. :)

Lovely picture. The only problem is the hair, if you wanted it to be "period specific" that is. Otherwise it's great. Love the dress, table, girl ect.

To be honest, I think had it been a "traditional" haricut for that specific era, it would have made the picture bland and mainstream. The fact that her hair is new age throws some contrast into the air. And we all like contrast!

I couldn't do much--she cut her hair into a mullet right before I had the shoot :shrug:
