Portrait

Postcard. David Hayes, 2015

I don't know what it is as of late...I seem to get further behind on my projects than ahead! Maybe it's because I keep adding new ones? In any case...I'm just finishing up last week's Be Still_52 prompts!

This prompt asked us to consider a family member and then create a still life portrait of them using objects that connected us to them. I chose my wife who is an accomplished knitter and seamstress. Borrowing a bit of her yarn and needles, I put together this vignette. Shot with my Nikon D90 and processed first in Lightroom. From there I added the Post Card texture in Photo Shop. I really do like how this all came together!


Fabric and Yarn. David Hayes, 2015.

For this one I added a piece of fabric, her pinking shears, and measuring tape. Again, shot with my Nikon and processed in Lightroom. While I think this is a better "portrait" of her as it has both fabric and yarn, "Postcard" is my favorite.
