photoblog image Grace #2

Grace #2

Another one from Grace's shoot, the goal for this one is quite obvious - to make old school Maryln Monroe type look with a washed BW look while still retaining as much detail in the eyes and lips.

PS
I am looking to move blogs to a more personalized blog pretty soon but I will post here from time to time. Shutterchance played a very important role in the development of my photography but I think it is time to move on to something where my family, friends, clients can comment freely and also something I can post multiple pictures at the same time.  This is not a farewell to shutterchance but just to let you know what's going on in the background. Hope you enjoy the shot.

You succeeded admirably in keeping detail where you wanted it. The eyes grab and don't let go.

Ok not sure what is wrong with shutterchance. This was my posting for yesterday, I tried to edit some lines and it will not let me re-post it for yesterday. So today, I also tried to edit again and the edit screen just went blank even after trying it on different machines..oh well!

Another rare and exotic picture by Dotun - threatening to become even more rare. Excellent picture.

Will miss you even more smile I understand the multiple pictures need, but I thought we are commenting freely on SC. Except when they don't want to allow certain words - which is maybe good.
