About the Image(s)

This image was taken at a street faire in Santa Fe. I had mother’s permission to take image. I tried to email the final picture to the mother but email was not correct. Taken with my converted Sony mirrorless camera. Edited in LR, PS and them in NIC-Silver Effects. I liked the image best as a Sepia as I thought it added a bit of nostalgia to the image

Portraits in infared, how brave. This takes an unusual image of a child that I appreciate because you always see portraits of children smiling at the camera. How nice a catch that she is looking unsure, perhaps wistful?

I think the sepia sets a mood and is appealing.   Posted: 09/08/2023 12:29:51

A very sweet portrait. I like your your use of a light vignette. I would lighten her eyes as they appear too dark for her skin exemplified by the infrared.   Posted: 09/09/2023 15:35:35

I agree with you regarding the eyes. I find that the eyes are the most difficult element when I do IR portraits of a person. I will try your suggestion.
Recently took an IR workshop where the leader suggesting trying a portrait on an animals and see what happens to the eyes. My grandson has a totally black cat and I am anxious to see what happens. It might make a good Halloween image. Susan   Posted: 09/17/2023 17:55:27

I have never been enthusiastic about photographing people in IR. Your image might be the exception as the child has such a sweet expression. The sepia tone does make it so much better than a straight print.   Posted: 09/17/2023 08:46:56

This is a succesful IR portrait. The kid does not look odd, but is a lovely button eye. Brown eyes perhaps look better than pale blue ones.   Posted: 09/18/2023 04:21:20

Very nice, good job on the processing. I've done several IR portraits, sometimes it's good to have them look off into the distance so you don't get the dark eyes.   Posted: 09/19/2023 11:30:38
