The king laid his hand upon her arm, and timidly said, "Consider, my dear; she is only a child!"
A word on the process
There are three more Alice photos to run to complete the story after this. I'll be continuing the project, there are things I need to reshoot and new shots I need to come up with, working toward putting a little print-on demand book on blurb. One thing I'd like to do is set up a few studio portraits in nineteenth century style (the Mad Hatter leaning on a column, looking thoughtful - that sort of thing) - in some way extending the Tenniel illustrations so that I bring something new to the narrative. I struggle with how consistent to make the series (should I be antiquing and sepia-izing them?)- some of the ones in which Alice is quite a small part of the environment work well, whereas others need the background de-emphasized . As with any art-making, the process should look effortless - some of these have been photoshopped for several hours (like the one above) whereas the previous day's needed hardly anything done with it. Any opinions on which work better than others would be gratefully accepted.
