First time I've had a model in my Leather jacket.
First time with a full frame digital.
First time with Studio Lighting.
First time someone might suggest I stick to Landscapes
Asked Ashlie to pull the collar round because she's a dress size 6, 5' 2" in height, I'm the size of a shed and she's wearing my jacket.
Well, I have to congratulate all of those excellent and extremely proficient portrait togs out there. Because I found the session extremely difficult and wasn't expecting anything else. So many more things to learn.
Thanks to EPZ's Horse aka Adrian Crook for so much help. Many thanks to Ashlie for her unending patience.

Posted By Photogene : A dodge and burn overlay to highlight the hair and eyes and parts of her face, spot healing tool and a touch of gaussian blur to soften the skin a tad.
Posted By gorgeousbloke : Please let me know what you think... good or bad.
Posted By MattGrayson : Skin smoothed, spots removed, spent ages duplicating layers and desaturating the skin and keeping the eyes and hair saturated, then converted to mono anyway, added an infrared effect, but toned down.
