Recently Jim and I had a wonderful opportunity to take pictures of a friend who grew up before our eyes and has blossomed into a beautiful young woman. She gave us the gift of time, while we shared with her the gift of our photography. In the photo below, I used a simple background, shallow depth of field and focused on her eye to create this portrait. Minimal processing was done to create this final image.
Earlier this year, I joined the On1 12 Months with Matt K to learn more about the On1 software and as a bonus to purchasing this particular package, Matt K provided some of his favorite Abobe Lightroom presets. The preset called Wedding Fairy tail - Strong was applied to provide this unique look.
