melbourne, andrew makowiecki, kazia makowiecki
And a very nice attepmt too – well done
Thanks Alan I was pretty happy with the result though the dark tone was accidental. I was thinking of so many things that I forgot about the exposure.

Nicely, done Andy! Like the comp and the darker tones accent nicely.
Thanks Draven I like the dark tones as well though I will confess to you I wanted a higher key and the dark tones are the result of underexposure hahha.
I was trying out some studio flash and was too busy looking at other things so I did not notice there was not enough light. Ah I like the pic anyhow and a lot of our good pics are the result of mistakes.
This is a stunning portrait Andrew! I personally love the darker tones and lighting… when I first saw this, I asked myself, is this a photo or a painting..? It has such a beautiful quality to it, I almost believed it was a realistic painting… maybe the lighting gives it that painting feel to it as well.. almost as though she’s sitting by candlelight… it’s lovely!
Thanks Tatum your comment is really appreciated.
Photography often surprises me in that sometimes I think the photo will be great and it isn’t. At other times I have thought a photo to be nothing special but it turns out to be really good. Its one of the things I love about photography.
This is my daughter and even ( teenagers can be a bit hard on how they look ) she likes this pic.
All the best from Andrew
This is a really nice portrait Andy. I really like this!
Thanks Graham it was one of those pics in which I had made a mistake yet the result was pleasing. Photography often surprises me.
Stunning work, if this is your first attempt, can’t wait to see the next..
Congratulations on being featured on RB home page, beautiful, well deserved, excellent artwork,
Lovely lighting (I see from your comments that it was accidental – but that still doesn’t take away from it for me).
A stunning and beautiful work of art. Congratulations on your RedBubble HomePage Feature. It’s good to see the kind of works that I really love being featured once in a while. Regards, Don. P.S. A FAV for me.
Very nice picture, the underexposure works out really great and combined with the colors and the way she poses this somewhow bears resemblance to portraits paintings from the 17th or 18th century (the cloths give here away though :-).
