Day 30 of the 365 photo challenge, I've recently joined up to this site so I'm having to start from here. I may go back on days but for now its late at night and I will start here. 

My first image is a portrait image of holly taken on my Canon eos 350d. I have chosen to go with the colour version rather then b&w as I feel the eyes stand out more with colour. 

Any friendly critique is welcome but please be nice. 


Regards 

Holly and Alex

Hello Holly & Alex,

Welcome to PhotoBlog and congratulations on doing the 354 photo challenge! I just finished a 52 week photo challenge and really enjoyed it and learned a lot. Stay with it and keep posting. By the way, very nice picture of Holly!

Thank you for your comments, yes I plan to try and stick with this one unlike the other time I have tried it.

Yes, very nice photo. Good lighting pose and composition. I would suggest that (at least it looks like that to me on my monitor) in post processing that you make the background completely black. That way there is no unwanted artefacts distracting the viewer. Just a thought... Cheers, Ivan
P.S. Nice red hair Holly!

Thank you Ivan, yes my aim was to try black out as much of the background as I could. I use Lightroom alot for editing images, I have tried Photoshop a few times but I can't get my head around it.
My hair wasn't supposed to be red,it was pink until I'm not to sure what happened but it turnt orange after washing it lol. It's now a 3 tone purple ready for this weekend's studio day. Hopefully I will get time to adventure about in Chester, some amazing places over there
