    This looks like a scene out of the movie Brazil. Sick, twisted, and very cool!

    Hmmm, now a strait jacket. That would be a great prop!! Great shots Dan but I agree with Hamish and grunged up B&W could be just the job.

    I really like this sort of image making. Luckily I have a fairly compliant model although I haven't tried to persuade her to wear a gas mask yet but we have made some interesting masks and I'm hoping to see what we can do with those over Easter.

    I was in Prague last week and saw a guy walking around wearing a plague mask for no apparent reason. Unfortunately he was in the wrong position to get a shot of - it wasn't you Dan was it by any chance?!! ;)

    It was just an upper face plague mask but no goggles, but that one is much better. Where did you find the others?!!

    Hi Dan,

    I had a play. I hope you don't mind.

    B&W (Tin-type / Delta 100) layer in Nik SilverFX Pro2 partially painted through with a 'stiff' brush. Pastel layer added to texture background then a mask to keep main subject area. Same for dust and scratches. Finally burnt in the areas between legs etc.
