Just finished photographing some new pillows. These may look familiar from works in the Ming and Qing dynasties. But what separates these are the colors and resolutions. Each has been manually adjusted in several iterations to highlight a more flattering exposure with care to accentuate contrast and coloration. My favorite is Purple Blossoms inspired by Yun Shouping's study in One Hundred Flowers; note how the shades of pink, purple, and fuchsia float lively in a bed of minty greens.
