Soon I hope to have more models. I have a couple people who “said” the would be willing to model for me soon but until then I will continue to practice on myself.
Any day now there will be so many photos of me on my blog that I will have to change the name of the blog to Jen Rinaldi’s Photos versus Jen Rinaldi Photography.
With that being said…the reason I post myself again blow is because I’ve been working hard practicing my “eye magic” techniques and I’m very pleased with the progress I’ve been making. I don’t think I’ve been as happy with my eye processing for the past year until just recently.
EYES are the most important part of a portrait to me. They should be SHARP as knife, slightly glassy, and I like them to look as if they are piercing right through the viewers own eyes if I can manage that!
This was taken with my beloved 50mm 1.4 in my family room with natural light shining through a gauzy curtain facing me (no flash) @ ISO 100.
Even with this bronzed conversion the eyes still achieve the same brightness and intensity I was going for with the processing.
