I dont do portraits – my mind goes blank and I cant give direction and I get so ‘flustered’ :(
But when Tanya told me she was raising money for cancer by shaving her head in a couple of weeks I thought she had to have some “before” shots….
I thought it would be good practice - it was a lot of fun and even though most of the shots weren’t any good I did manage a couple of ‘keepers’ :)

your comments (especially on whats wrong with this shot) would be really helpfull !! :)

    I love this shot, Pene. Tanya looks like she was having loas of fun. I am by no definition an expert but I think the only thing “wrong” is that the light on the right-hand side of the photo is perhaps a bit too bright or harsh. I think Tanya is wonderful for putting her hair up like that and taking a photo. Good luck to her in her fundraising efforts.

  • Thank you for the feedback Jan :) I agree about the lighting, I tried to fix it but this was the best I could get… And this was the only shot of about 6-7 that was usable :(
    I’ll have to stand her on her head again and have another go :) LOL

    You’ve done a great job despite not being a portraitist. I hope you do more and post them.

  • :) thank you :)

    Lol – this is great – kudos to Tanya, I hope she raises lots of cash

  • She’s doing quite well…. The highest bid so far is $500 :) and the hair is also saved and used to make a wig for children :)
