Rework Wednesday – Quiet Elegance

Quiet Elegance

F/2.5, 1/125, ISO-1600, 50MM

Here’s a rework of a quick portrait I took over a year ago of my niece. I loved the pose, the expression, and the soft light. When I originally did this up, I spent a lot of time darkening the background and doing a lot of the things that you normally do in post-processing when you don’t have a lot of experience. But what I didn’t do well enough was compensate for the month of January and the blue florescent light overhead. Consequently this poor, beautiful girl had the complexion of your average zombie. I put forth a little more effort this time, adding some ambient color and doing to give her a warm glow. I think this is a much better effort than a year ago.
