I typically had one hour to grab and process a picture each day. So many of the shots and much of the processing were hurried. I think the original shot would have worked better if I’d decided to cool down the lighting (make it less yellow). It was one of my early attempts at the bleach image effect, and I tried to get it in-camera.
I cannot remember if ‘Deliberate’ was referring to my expression or the over-exposure of the image. It works for both.
Today (2021) I prefer the spot color approach.
