Another of my beautiful cousin, I am slowly learning more about creative portraits, this is my favourite so far.

The tools at hand were very limited – it was late in the evening, I’d been up for over 24hrs having come off nightshift that morning and the only light I had to work with was a ceiling light and the flash from my camera, which I covered with a tissue to try and soften the light a little…. we had a lot of fun :)

I converted it to black and white, and put the red SC in with PS CS.

comments and critique always welcome, I know it’s not perfect…. I’ll get there eventually lol…

    Good effort buddy considering you were sleep deprived! I like it, the red is so alluring. Good idea with the tissue!

  • Thanks Helen :) I’m pre sure I was sleep walking when I took this one lol ;) and thanks, the hat was actually a kinda dull mossy colour, but yeah…. Red lol… and thanks, The tissue is something I learnt from my model horse days lol
