Get Pushed R20 Part 2 - "Refined"

This is for Get Pushed R20...I know I'm a little behind!!

My partner for this time was k4wea

Her photo streams is so incredible and I always look forward to her new postings!


So... as my partner, this is what Karen said..


I enjoyed looking through your stream, you have a wonderful variety of shots and have quite a talent. My push to you is to do a portrait with either high key or low key lighting.


Well, I could not decide which way to go... so tried to take both ways...

The hardest part of this challenge was to choose the model and location.

I was very lucky to have a friend Shreya and a daughter Kimiko who were both willing to put up with me trying to get the best shot... lol. (I should not have to mention about their natural beauty ;)


As a photographer, I tried to present each person's personality and character.

Kimiko, 17, is young on the edge and loves to read and read. When she is with her books, she is totally in her own world.

Shreya, my dear friend, is always sensible and caring about people around her; at the same time, is very smart and has an inner strength that comes out as her solid beauty.


Thanks to Karen, it was a great challenge / chance for me to rediscover the fun of portraiture in new ways!


Have a wonderful evening, everyone!
