Hands of a Goddess by NetheneKhthon Hands of a Goddess by NetheneKhthon
I love her hands. The model is Genesis, at a cabin in the midst of nowhere. She was reading tarot for me, and I was taking pictures of it. Very rustic feel to it. I left the grain in intentionally.

Taken on a Canon AL-1 with 400spd black & white film, in winter '03.

Out of curiosity (for the follow-up shoot suggested by fulcanelli) do you have a favourite tarot card?

How about a real closeup of your friends hands, placing cards down, or something like that? that could be spiffy.

That is a fantastic idea. The cards and her hands are both really beautiful, getting sharp images of them would be lovely.
Thank you for the suggestion!

This is excellent and it was wise to leave the grain but you knew that already. :-)

There are just times when a grain is necessary for an effect. :-) Good choice once again! =D

Heh. Thanks for looking at the pic & reading the desc.
The reading went.. mishmash. Apparently I'm self-deprecating and need to be less abusive of myself and my art. :)

Wow, that doesn't sound like fun at all.

Thanks.

No, but it was useful. It is far easier to correct a flaw once you are made aware of its presence.
