Here is a collection of 9 images featuring the model Elle Beth and a red chair. They were all shot in an old warehouse location in central Nottingham. The lighting of these images was just the available natural window light of the location.

After scouting the location we found an old broken red chair that I felt would make a good prop for this set of images with Elle Beth. The theme of the set was around the idea of Elle finding an old lost chair, which was now in sad state of repair and the memories emotions it brought back .

Elle who I have worked with a number of times in recent years, produced a good set of different poses which I thought showed different emotion in each image in the set.

The choice of monochrome seemed to suit the subject and location. As in colour the red of the chair seem to dominate the image a bit too much in some of the shots. However the image below I kept in colour as the skin tones worked well against the red chair in this pose.

Kept this one in colour as it seem to show the skin tones well and the chair red did not dominate the image

The images above were all processed in Lightroom including converting to monochrome. They were then exported into Photoshop for a few tweeks and final finishing.
