80s Fashion Shoot

This is the only photo I've taken which I have been asked about professionally. I was approached by a magazine editor about using it as the cover of one of their publications. Ultimately it fell through, but its a very flattering request even so.

I have included the original shot below, it shows the tremendous difference even a small amount of editing can have on how a photograph looks. The color image, partly due to the 80's theme, was too vibrant and discordant to be a pleasing image. Once taken into a high contrast black and white it is a much more interesting image.

As an image it was fairly standard to take, fixed Prime lens, not too wide an aperture and a fairly fast shutter speed, and yet it stands as the one image that attracted commercial attention out of the 6081 taken in 2009.
