Anyone who has seen this site will know that I try to use unusual light sources. This time it was my monitor. I had eight attempts at this, I had major problems with the light from the monitor completely overtaking the the subjects face, so this one was captured with 2 x ND 8 soft grads angled on the side to reduce the monitor light while retaining the light in the face. I'm on a bit of an anti digital grain thing at the moment so a Big credit to Dilly for staying perfectly still for 3 seconds during capture so I could stay at iso400. The image is very dark, so to reduce the light from the monitor I put a previous crap version of this image on the computer, hence the double scene.
PP work : 3 layers with selective curves and toning, general sharpening.
I'm off to Scotland either tomorrow or saturday for several days to see my parents, so may not get round to replies and comments etc.
All the best Mal.
