Mid-Summer Portrait 2

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMost of the Rade-goers went all out with their costumes and make-up and this young lady also went out of her way to pose for us. I really loved editing the above black and white portrait, but I also love the dress, so thought I’d show you a colour shot as well.

Again, I used the 45mm lens on my Olympus OMD EM5.

    You are a master technician with the editing. I’m very impressed with the stunning high key look you have achieved, and the lovely soft colouring of the dress. Did you get the opportunity to show your models the final portrait? I’m sure they would want to frame it.
