“This image was a bit of a nightmare to produce. I’ve been using fiber bundles in a lot of photographs lately thanks to the inspiring images of Aurora Crowley and Patrick Rochon. The exposure involves taking the fiber bundles, exposing them, and then highlighting the form underneath with a smaller torch. The real trick is not to overexpose the photograph, which was definitely frustrating at times. My website is www.clayhowardsmith.com“
