Well…. chalk up another portrait ready for the PPW (Professional Photographers of Washington) annual print competition! After receiving feedback from SPPA’s judging panel on the previous version of “Great-Grandma’s Dress” (seen here in a previous blog, I decided to take it back to almost the original capture and come at it from a different approach. The comments I heard were that the portrait just seemed a little cramped and that the image of the little girl didn’t really portray her as…. well…. little. So I added space (where there was none… thank you photoshop!) removed the painterly brush strokes (to respond to another comment that since the title was about the dress, they wanted to see more details) and played with the color a little bit so that the pinks in her dress didn’t over power the pink in her face and removed the distracting keyline.
Wish me luck!!!
