Gosh.... no I haven't forgotten about y'all. =)
I have been busy working on things for the shop.
Our Camera Club is participating in an Art Walk here in town and I went with Grace and took this image today.
I knew what I had in mind and I think it worked out well.
I saw an image on Michelle Blacks blog and was trying to go for the same effect.
The Phaunt Forum is having an "Out of the box" contest this month, they are encouraging us to go out and look at other Photographers work, to get inspired. I was!!
Yes, parts of her face and arm are blown out. But in ART there are no rules. LOL!
I am going to print it tomorrow to see how bad the blown out areas look.
I kind think it lends itself to the feeling of the image.
Edit: my friend Sunny called it (sun-kissed) I think that is a lovely term. :)
I was really trying to achieve something that would evoke emotion.
So take a look and give my some feedback.
Is it good enough for an Art Walk image?
