Really getting into B&W Portraits & Landscapes - I think the right B&W picture can look better than any colour one.They have a certain type of emotional deepness (like me).I like playing around with the different colour filter effects you can apply to a B&W pic to bring out original colours more(green,red,blue) Any comments,advice welcome.Thanks.

You did it!

You managed to put all of her sweetness in that frame despite chopping off her forehead and chin! I prefer this execution better than the previous pic where she is leaning,

I shall agree with you on the qualities of black and white, I wished I could use my film camera.

I could distinguish a mark on her nose, is it on her nose, or is it lens dirt?

Congratulations.

Cheers. No its a touch of flour on her nose (I did call the photo 'A touch of flour' before and then changed it at the last minute, she'd been making pastry)

Having read and commented on your forum topic "books for beginners" I decided to look at your portfolio. I really like this shot, nice use of B+W. I think the flour is a bit of a distraction though. I would also have tried to put the focus on her eyes (it seems to be on the nose) as with most portraits this is the key focus.

You could use selective AF points on your camera if it has them, and play around with depth of field/manually focus to get them sharp. (AF - auto focus points). These allow you to select certain areas or points of the photo you would like to focus on.

I think the idea for a fun baking portrait with flour everywhere would be great so maybe a shot to try in future?

Regardless of this it is still a great photo and considering you say you are a beginner it is a fantastic start Smile

Keep shooting and I look forward to seeing more.
