Absolutely Gorgeous

So I mentioned the wedding that I second shot in the previous post...I have been up to all hours working on the pictures from it but have one that I cannot wait to share. It is by far one of my all time faves. I did have some fun playing with it.
1. I converted it to Black and White...obviously. 2. I created a new layer and smoothed out her skin using the tips from this [b]school lesson. Finally 3. I created a new layer and applied the gaussian blur texture to it and then erased the layer over her face and hair and necklace. The close crop was done in camera by me standing over her as she crouched down (she was so obliging) using my new Canon 50mm 1.8 lens.
I personally get giddy looking at it. :) Let me know what you think of it.


  1. Hi Abra, You are a very gifted artist !!!!!!!!!! The pictures of Nicole are the most beautiful shots I have ever seen !!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to see them all when you are done.
