photoblog image The frame of Antonia

The frame of Antonia

Another old portrait of Antonia.  One more shot from the old blog is going up and then asiko will return to blogging with new stuff after taking even more time off.

When I process my images U don't see what I see because my monitor at home is calibrated wrong. Images on my PC appear darker than the same images on other PCs, its not till I get to work that I see what the image really looks like. This was really apparent in my previous image of Antonia where the lighting is fine on my PC, but its blown out when I view it on my PC at work. Bummer!!!!!! Thank God I am getting a new PC 2moro.

For this shot I flashed Antonia from the side at 90 degrees to create some dramatic lighting.

PP: conversion to monchrome by channel mixer, curves adjustments and then addition of borders.

Cool one dud, I have the same issue with one of my monitors at home, stupid thing is that it's the brand new monitor that makes images appear slightly darker. I give up smile Nice framing. How do you do it? Have an idea but why stress myself when you can tell me exactly how it was done. (Yup I am lazy like that)

sk: my PP says it, well kinda, ok I always bump up my contrast (i love serious contrast in my shots) the framing is done by using various funny shaped brushes to paint on a normal created border using a mixture of grey and white colours. U can also create brushes for photoshop

The lighting pool on her face is spot on and it's neat the way she seems to grow out of the frame.

My only concern is the pool of light on the background that seems a little out of keeping with the rest of the frame. The light tones are fine but to my eye it could stand just a little scratching to blend with the rest. But overall - ace!

nice, I like how you had the flash not only from the side but from up above her head to get those cacthlights in the upper eye, and the highly stylized frame is cool
sk: thanx Gary, i used a combination of a flash and reflector. i am learning a lot about lighting

Nice profile, and lighting. I'm not sure about the frame. Btw, you could go weekly, it will give you more time and space.
cool! very impressive portrait!
Nice work. She looks vulnerable. Regards, Brent

I dont mind the old posts that I have not seen smile. I like this....but perhaps the color version of a similar post that I remember seeing was better.

Nice black and white conversion, but I find the border is a bit too distracting.
