The Lord is the brightness of His Glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the world of His power...Hebrews: 1:3

This is a different version of yesterday's experiments. I reduced the saturation tone in photo shop ...I think hands are expressive and decided to use mine on this pose. This self portrait is with lamp lighting, as my light source...I forgot to adjust my camera for tungsten lighting as you will see in the previous portrait and it is interesting what you can do to correct the red tone in photo shop to give it a new look.

It is human to error
But if we repair
And compare,
We may improve,
To express
What we learn
To discern...
This will prove
Where we are at
To be exact.

    Thank you all...I personally prefer this tone of lighting better after I edited it in photoshop...Reddish tones from Tungsten lighting in the previous portrait is fun once in awhile for something different but not for a steady diet of it.....This is what photography is about...learning from mistakes and the only way you can do that is to experiment and compare the differences ...

    I love it!! You can also use filters in photoshop to change the color of the light. I like the cool blue ones. It is much easier to fix it there than fiddling with the white balance on the camera. You look very beautiful in this light and I love the placement of your hands.

    This is another winner of a shot and your hands being expressive added to the photo so much. I am experimenting all of the time with my camera now and having a lot of fun doing it : )
