I get asked alot on how I do my textured or layered portraits and what kind of camera I use. So I’m letting the cat out of the bag. I use a point and shoot camera “Nikon L100” and mostly natural light. I also use this camera for my macro shots.

I start by blending my images in Photoshop and as you can see my daughter has very dark natural brown eyes.

After I’m done layering. I use a program called Portrait Professional to bring out my daughter’s eyes and other features.

Then I usally do some minor touch ups and run my images through Dynamic Photo HDR.

I’m sure there are other ways of doing this but this is what works best for me.
And I always credit My textures or backrounds and this one belongs to our RB’s very own Claudia AKA Phatpuppy. It is called Magic Room Stock CLICKME
