Good evening....hope you all had a fabulous Sunday and thanks for stopping by pf it always is appreciated....

tonite...self portrait.....background was some wallpaper cut offs .... using the Bowen 100 watt light and the small desk lamp with reflective umbrella in front to soften .....processed on PS ...really only to crop and tidy up...used Color Efex Pro 3 complete to do some very subtle skin softening as I think I have gone well over the top in the past....hope you like......Jools Smile

Lovely portait Jools. And a perfect illustration that you don't need all expensive gear to come up with great, inventive work.

love this Jools. Just having your face and part of the background lit in a very low key way makes this a top shot

This is excellent Jools. I think your thoughtful expression and the way you have lit and framed the image creates a really nice mood to the portrait.
