My Special Cherub

Home Studio

A prime example of why photographers should keep certain props hidden until the child is ready to be photographed. If he had seen this bow & arrow set before I was ready for a portrait with it, he would have lost interest in it and would have been more interested in pulling the wings off or throwing the bean bag heart. ;) (That time came quickly enough . . .) As it was, the bow held his attention long enough for me to stick the wings to his back with double-sided tape and to arrange the other props.

Nikon D70 ,D70 kit lens
Oil filters applied twice, feathered vignette painted with chroma rose brush, and a color burn blending layer set to 25%. full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

Congratulations Angie on another outstanding image. This looks like one of those elegant Valentine's card from Hallmark. Wonderful, and simply adorable! Niecy
