Till We Have Faces by SquarePeg


Available to buy on…

Hello. 24th August and number 236 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

My wife, Autumn, taken tonight at home. As she was watching me work on this she said it reminded her of the cover of her favourite book by CS Lewis, Till We Have Faces which is based on the myth of Cupid and Psyche, so that’s where the title comes from.

Levels adjustment, high pass filter layer at three pixels, equalised (reduced to 30%), black and white conversion layer blended with overlay and erased from the hair, texture layer added twice, both blended with overlay and partially erased.

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! :)
