5/6/05 - Laurie & Juniper
ds20041023_0229awF Laurie Max.jpg

Rockville, MD

This is from a session done back in October, but I've only now did my post processing work on it. I didn't realize I had a pretty good shot here. Of course it's nice to have good models. (Juniper is the one on the bottom with the smooshed-in looking face and floppy ears. I could have said that Laurie is the cute one, but I'm sure Juniper is cute to another bulldog.)

PS - Crop; adjust levels; bump contrast a bit; adjust shadows to restore texture to sweater; remove dog hair from sweater (healing brush); minor facial touches; facial shadow adjustment (dodge/burn layer); apply 81A filter; extract from background; underlay black layer; USM (partial image); sign, frame, downrez.

Beautiful lighting and pose. Have you tried some other color than black for the background?

No Dennis::tsk tsk tsk::A woman never wants to hear that she is cute!!! A dog is cute, a woman is simply beautiful, just as your model is. Very nice processing. Love the composition in your picture above.
