who happens to be my dad.

I like this one, I'd like to have it framed maybe. Any suggestions on photoshopping?

Hi Amy,

Welcome back to the forum

Both of your photos are delightful.

You used the late afternoon (morning?) light to great effect esp with the individual hairs on your dad's head being sunlit.

It was a challenge I'll bet to find the right exposure.

Per your request, I did a slight edit on the two photos and combined them as one so I could attach both in this post.

I cropped to reduce the background and bring more emphasis to the "look" your dad has in the two pics.

I also tried to enhance to contrast a bit.

After combining them, I thought that both might work in one frame! :idea:

Thank you digcamfan! I like your versions better. I have been loving my underexposure lately for some reason. I suppose it's a mor morbid feeling, why I like that I do not know!

Thanks for the help!

Good work Amy. Don't trust me on exposure questions, though. I always say I want to try some more dramatic contrasts, but as soon as I see a shadow, I wimp out and start filtering.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Nice work Amy. I like how your chopped the top of the head off in the first. In lots of cases that's a no-no, but here it focus' you on his eyes.
If anything, I think they need a bit more exposure on the face. Try that tin foil as a reflector again. Or even white paper. That may be better actually, it won't be as harsh.

I'll have a play later tonight when I can see the screen properly.

I like the first picture, Seems in thought and not posing for the picture, I guess some picture have to looked possed but something like you did with your Dad looks better with him doing natural things like reading the paper. Just my 2 cents :-)
