Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read...
Isaiah 34:16
I just barely got this self portrait in before the start of the next day. I adjusted my camera for Tungsten lighting and opened up to more light on this existing light portrait...I also used the blue filter in photoshop and toned down the saturation.

Manual focus
shutter 1/10 sec.
ISO 400

    Soft and lovely. Isaiah begins about one-third of the way through the Bible, and that appears to be where you are!

    I love it!! Such a peaceful shot!! I love the dress you have on. I would wear more dresses if I could find ones that look as comfortable as that one. The blue filter is my favorite filter. Your lighting experiments always come out so beautifully.

    Had you been wearing a wide-brimmed hat, I would say this would be very Victorian. I'm learning a few things about lighting just looking at these SPs! Another beauty.

    Your lighting experiments are wonderful, and they help us to learn more about lighting and how to use it. This is an excellent shot and the use of the blue filter gives it such a nice soft look.

    I love your words Tizy...That's one of the nicest things anyone has said...about the beauty of nature in relationship to the miracles of Jesus....You are a deep thinker for one so young and a poetic soul. Thank you!
