After posting this shot I promised that I’d take a ‘nice’ shot of our daughter to make up for the fact that the majority of her sisters now had decent portraits on this site. But, what with one thing and another, I hadn’t got around to it.

This shot was taken this afternoon while she was watching television. One problem with taking a decent portrait of this one is that she rarely sits still long enough to get her in the frame, let alone compose a decent shot, but she’s been a bit unwell the last few days so she’s a little more sedentary than usual ;-)

As with most of my portraits this one was acheived by adding a blurred layer set to overlay mode. The side effect of this is a bump in contrast, which has blown out the highlights a little, but in this case I think that works quite well to isolate her face.
