Pictorialism revisited

In general I take photographs with a treatment in mind. So if I want a pictorialist style photo I take a “normal” raw photograph with a result in mind. What if I looked at some of my older photographs and gave them a pictorialist makeover?

The photograph above was originally taken as a full-colour shot of fields near the village of Reeth. I think this new treatment gives it a dreamy look as if from a different time. It won’t be to everyone’s taste but I like it.

Two photos of Arabella given a Stieglitz style makeover. I’m also influenced by Gavin Seim’s theory of “shadow hacking.”

I gave this photo of ballerina Erica Mulkern the pictorialist treatment and then a mild (digital) cyanotype wash.

Arabella again, this time with a Stieglitz treatment but then converted to black and white.
