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.
