Portrait Photography, Edinburgh

 

A retro portrait29th August 2012

The majority of the images I produce have a similar feel to them, bright lighting & bright eyes - even though I generally favour monochrome images.

There are times when variety is desirable though, and this week the challenge was to experiment with lighting to try to re-create the feel of an old painting.

This was the result:

The fall-off of the light, the tones, and the pose, are all remarkably reminiscent of an old oil-painting, and so I was very pleased with the result.
