Bubbles Girl

girl-blowing-bubbles-portrait

What can I say about this portrait? It was actually shot at a wedding, and some children were blowing bubbles just as the sun was setting.

I positioned myself so that the sun gave this young lady a rim light, and also backlit the bubbles making them much more obvious.

Finally, I overpainted the image with a digital tablet and pen, removing all traces of the photographic pixels, and leaving what is best described as a “painterly” feel to the piece. Since the original photo is no longer present, this is in fact a digitally painted portrait.
