Re: Creative Portraits: Subtle Expressions by Dana Lane

Gilbert, I really like the way you handled this one. I'm in the process of batching up my shoot to send her some shots, can I send that to her as well, I think she'd like it very much (credited of course!)?

Re: Creative Portraits: Subtle Expressions by Dana Lane

Very nice capture.

I realize this isn't very painterly and some may question if it's actually photoart.
Filters used were Nik, Redfield AE and amphisoft along with typical photoshop filters (contrast adj, hue & sat, color adj, layer styles, etc)

Re: Creative Portraits: Subtle Expressions by Dana Lane

Lovely photo thanks to Dana for letting us "mess around" with it

i played with filters on the first one, then noted everyone was doing paintings so attempted a ahb as well

Re: Creative Portraits: Subtle Expressions by Dana Lane

i like that, lk. almost looks like firelight lighting.

i did mine in Paint Shop Pro first to touch up and crop the image. i then used a filter forge filter i've been working on called 'ghost rider' to produce the final.

I especially liked how you did the edges, shadows and background. The edge/background work added to your very pleasing manipulation. Well done and welcome aboard.

Tell us how you did the edges: Plugin? Action? what?
