After thumbing through a copy of "Deus Ex Machina" by Ralf Gibson, I decide to to revisit pictures from my session with Dominique with new eyes. She offered up a number of interesting poses with twisted limbs like this one. Gibson and Jeanloup Sieff both used pushed Tri-X grain to great advantage for their nudes, so I thought I'd try it out.
