The Little Bird came down the stairs this afternoon with her bow, and bam, there was my chance for a portrait for Photo Friday. Yeah, it’s a bit dry this winter and the static wreaked havoc with her hair, but I liked the portrait and this was my chance to play with vignettes in Lightroom.
The color version wasn’t bad, but the background really distracted, as did the piece of her pink blanket in the shot. (She’s cooperative to a point. Too much posing and the smile’s gone. She’s a diva like that.) The shift to B&W helped, and the vignette more or less finished it off.
Shot with my 18-55mm lens and a Speedlite bounced off the ceiling.
