wow Rene, what a great idea. It came out brilliantly too, thank you for sharing with us your method. I think having it done in the camera, without knowing how it might comes out, makes it all the more a wonderful work of art- sort of mystical the sepia tones too, great work- voted

The melding of male and feminine beauty here is most affecting. His looks are Greek classical but the flowers make me think of Pre-Raphaelite, for some reason. Powerful work.

This is actually a double exposure on the film. Now, I would do it in PhotoShop. But at the time I did this (some years ago), I shot an entire role underexposed of just the Queen Anne's Lace on a black background. Then I went to a photoshoot and with the film rewound, shot the images. It is a crap shoot as you can only vaguely remember where the flowers are in the frame and you are not sure the film will catch in exactly the same sprockets. You set your camera to rewind with a leader still out so you can rethread and use again.--Rene

This is very interesting - not your typical nude, and not your typical male portait. The lace is a great addition - interesting texture, great highlights. The only thing I would change is the amount of negative space on the left hand side - a bit distracting. If you cropped it a bit, the line of the model's arm, back, and lace would be very interesting centerpiece.
