Featured in the DSLR Canon group 3rd of January 2009.

Having been on a ‘white knuckle ride’ into the realms of photoshop and now in recovery I offer this image of my very dear friend & neighbour who was happy to have me take & meddle with a portrait shot!

Arthur spent many years in the Australian Airforce and is without doubt a contender for Australian of the year in my books. I can’t speak highly enough of the gentleman or his pride & love of Australia.

Thanks Arthur, Tai xx

    Arthur has an interesting face for portraits and if he is happy to pose – he is a rare man indeed! Hopefully you keep him well supplied with the appropriate “nectar”?
    Incidentally – what’s the Dracan effect – I haven’t heard of it?

  • Hello pommie, welcome back havent seen you in ages! I’ll be checking out your new stuff! The dragan effect gets it’s name from a Dutch Photographer, here is a link to a turorial, the one I used on utube Dragan effect

    Happy new year to you & yours!
