This was just one of those ‘Social Media’ images that are posted almost every minute of every day. But the opportunity arose for me
to create a portrait version that could be given as a gift.
The before image is lovely – two very pretty ladies, obviously out, having a good time and getting someone to snap a
memory moment for them – a nice photo.
The after image is dramatically different though, but the girls are still there. They’ve been glam’d up obviously but not beyond a point that couldn’t have been achieved with some creative photography in the first place. I also cropped a bit closer to add some more impact. They’ve been friends since they were young and this lovely result was produced as an A3 photo, framed and given as a Christmas gift.
Portraits are a common request and it isn’t always obvious what is the best shot to use as an original. That doesn’t matter, just give me a choice of originals and I’ll let you know what I think is a good choice and what I think I could do with it. It’s great fun (really I thoroughly enjoy it) and the results are sometimes surprising – my ideas aren’t always what you might expect.
