For those of you who are not familiar with my background....I was a black and white film only girl...until several years ago. That is when I added digital capture to my skill set. I must say, I was smitten. It is not only the immediate gratification of the image capture, but the endless image enhancements available in photoshop. Here is an image I took several years ago now. I love the expression on this child's face. Through some minor enhancement, the total feeling of the image changed. I thought the original image was beautiful...but with the enhancement (done by a master printer and photoshop guru (no, not me!), the image is so much more powerful. I consider this image an Heirloom portrait. It has a more formal feel, and a vintage look. This image in a beautiful ornate frame will make a lasting keepsake, for generations to come.
