She’s still a doll even when she’s not all dolled up! This is just one of those Saturday or Sunday afternoon laying around in bed shots. Sometimes the afternoon light is just too nice to resist so I coax Nini into posing for me. She’s usually willing to pose once a week or so, as long as it’s only roughly ten minutes or less. I think she looks like an angel with this light! She's my angel!
For this portrait I was experimenting with the blown out backlighting technique. I used a white Styrofoam reflector to light up her face and put catchlights in her eyes. The light was so nice and soft that I didn’t do any retouching, and I used Nini’s favorite preset at the starting point for the processing. See her favorite preset here too.
Critiques are always welcome.
