She Ain't Heavy... by SquarePeg


Available to buy on…

Hello. 3rd August and number 215 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Taken this evening at home. My daughter once again being patient with me as I ask her to hold still…not an easy task for a four year old!

Black and white conversion with levels and contrast adjustment, a high pass filter layer at three pixels and colour retained in the eyes. A texture layer was added at around 50% opacity and erased to blend.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
