The Audition

By chase
Hi all,hope you are has been a while..again Sad

One from a session I had with Paige,my Granddaughter.

Yep,it's soft,dark,oof,noisy...not a lot going for it really ( 'cept it looks fab in print) Wink

Lit with one softbox & a reflector opposite.
All manner of stuff added & faffed with in Photoshop,not quite as painterly as I wanted but as I have printed it on textured paper that has added the finishing touch...not something I could portray here.

Thanks for taking the time to call in.

Not bad Janet Wink may I politely point out that the squiggly edge of a bit of material on the LH side near Paiges tutu does catch the eye.

No not really

Looks fab though and I bet even fabber in print too.
The bored expression look, the one sock down and fidgeting with the shoe ribbons, all make it for me.

Hope you keeping well and busy Janet, tas been a while but same for me too

Janet, this is another cracking image. It has a nice balance of light against the darkness. Cannot tell its noisy either, unless you go looking for it Smile I think personally you have produced another stunning image Smile

That wasn't put on for the camera Les,she had had totally enough by the time this frame was taken Wink
I'm good thanks,albeit a little lacking in the ideas department & far too busy with camera club stuff too Sad
