Pre-Raphaelite Redhead on a Pale Afternoon by micklyn

Pre-Raphaelite Redhead on a Pale Afternoon by 

Portraiture has always been my first love… if I go for too long without doing a portrait I start to get withdrawal symptoms… so here it is, my latest ‘fix’. : ) Been playing around with Mila’s hair (again!) She is such a lovely and willing model – a joy to work with.

Camera Model Canon EOS 600D
Shooting Mode Manual Exposure
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/200
Av( Aperture Value ) 1.8
ISO Speed 100
Lens EF50mm f/1.8 II

Processing in Photoshop CS2. Textures my own.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
