"No greater smile than this" (Part 2)
There's something about portraits, something that keeps making me take more and more of them.
me the face – the eyes, the expression of the mouth – is the thing that
reflects character. It is the only part of the body that permits us to
see the inner person! -Philippe Halsman, "Great Themes : LIFE Library
of Photography" by Time-Life (Editor), page: 106
So i'm back, Easter Monday, with a portrait! Happy Easter everyone :-)
I spent, the weekend, updating my portrait portfolio.
The lighting in the above photograph was easily achieved with the help
of just one canon speedlite, and of course natural daylight :-)
Post processing was done after RAW conversion in canon's DPP, which i'm
beginning to like using. Photoshop, was then used to creat both the
soft focus effect as well as the duotoned effect.
The result... as you can see is stunning, but then, so is the model.
There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs. -Ansel Adams
