Photo-a-Week Challenge

Week 17 -9. Closely Cropped



Tried a “selfie” for this week and was horrified by the reality of a straight unflattering shot. Spent a pleasant few hours playing with make-up then shooting the image in difference poses and lighting and finally putting it through the editing for portraits in Elements and Silver Efex. I cropped it in as closely as possible to get rid of unsightly wrinkles and to get the emphasis on the eyes. Had a haircut that week too so another closely cropped.

  1. Your selfie is quite nice especially when compared to what I’m able to produce. It would scare small children. Well done! Worth the effort.
