Even in my alternate universe, the rain makes my hair curl... by 

A perfect, gloomy, rainy spring day here in South Africa (my favourite) full of lovely, soft, luminous light for portraits. And I haven’t done one of these in ages. Mila is getting all grown up, every time I turn around she is taller and smarter and more independent. One day I’m going to be really happy I did these offbeat and otherwise portraits, even though the colours are strange, they are full of the essence of Mila.

Model: Mila, 5 and a half
Camera Model Canon EOS 600D
Shooting Date/Time 2012/10/25 04:25:39 PM
Shooting Mode Manual Exposure
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/160
Av( Aperture Value ) 2.8
ISO Speed 200
Lens EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

Edited in Photoshop, Topaz ReMask, Topaz B&W Effects and Topaz DeNoise also used.

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.
