    Fabulous!...I'm new to this--my question is: might it be possible to say under each of your photos how you got the spectacular results you did? Thanks so much!

    Liz I understand your question but the answer would likely take a hefty book - it involves everything from choice of angle of view, lens and exposure settings for the original image, then onto some selective cropping through several pieces of post processing using various photoshop techniques and plugins. Sounds a lot but the post processing on this image took less than five minutes. The majority of the work is creative and intuitive rather than technical - I have a vision that fits the image and then process accordingly to make it work. The tools that are necessary to produce this were, a Wacom Tablet, Photoshop CS5, Nik Color Effects Pro, One-One photo-tools professional edition and about twelve years of photoshop experience coupled with 40 years of photographic experience. One tip I can give - this shot was taken when I had her saying "AAAHHH" - you can see how it changes her face and makes it more alive than on the images where she closes her mouth. I also had her make eye contact with me so that it looks like she is connecting with the viewer. Portraits with no eye contact are less effective.

    Julie I just sent you an email with the file location. Thanks for your kind comments on the photos -(By the way, Meetup doesn't have a working email address fro you so you miss out on the group emails).
