It's a night of contest entries! I just wrapped up my entries for the Rock Paper Scissors contest for @peerplays, then came across the new theme for #steemitphotochallenge! Human eye in black and white, and I realized I have some new work that would make great entries for SPC51.
Doris is another pinup model in Los Angeles. This was taken in her home near Culver City. It was part of an editorial we shot for Pink Bow City magazine, and this shot didn't make it in the publication. I always wanted to include it in something I cared about, so this is a perfect fit. I love the way the eye is visible in the shadows across her face.
Micheline has been featured in many of my posts here on Steemit. She's a brilliant designer, artist, business woman and model [...just to name a few of her talents]. This shot was always striking to me because her eyes and gaze were so intense. I'd processed this as a B/W and it was the first shot that came to mind for SPC51.
Alyssa Marie is a famous make-up artist with over 500K followers on Instagram. She's one of the national spokeswomen for Anastasia Beverly Hills. I met her years ago when she was part of the beauty team for high production shoot in Los Angeles. We became friends and stayed in touch, eventually making time for this shoot. The incredible ball gag was given to us courtesy of Violet Chachki. The eyes are so striking in this photo so I thought it'd be perfect for the SPC.
