Perception by Tara Lemana

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Ok, last one in this series – for now…!! It’s been great doing these portraits for the practise it’s given me doing different types of processing. When it comes to portraits I always feel the eyes are the most important thing, they make or break a portrait, as it were. This series is largely about me getting better at getting the eyes right in portraits….now I just need some different models to work on other than myself!!! :)
