This was shot back in my "fine art" days, before I got in touch with the fact that I'd rather shoot cheesy, goofy stuff. In fact, I mostly shot this to prove that I could do it.

Model is Elkie Cooper.

Lighting was a single small softbox, with flags on either side to control spill. The model was standing against a black velvet drape to further control spill and give a totally black background. Shot using TMAX 100 ASA film with my Hasselblad, and printed on Ilford MG IV paper, scanned into photoshop and level-corrected.

I named it that because String Theory appears to be nebulous enough to explain ANYTHING. Including hot chicks. :D

I love your work for its goofy, campy and cheesy qualities, but this proves you could've gone the other way if your tastes had been different.

Your "fine art" period was lacking in boobs, guns and steampunk. I prefer your "awesome art" period that you're currently enjoying.
