Challenge: Song Titles, 2006 (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Nikon D70s
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED
Location: Moscow, ID
Date: Jan 9, 2007
Aperture: f/6.3
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/8 s
Galleries: Advertisement, Self Portrait
Date Uploaded: Jan 9, 2007

I used a 1/8 shutter speed with flash, and a light behind my head to get this effect. That's why my hair is yellow and my face isn't as much, and why my hair resembles flames.

I'm using this as part of my 30 day self portrait challenge...Wierd how you see things you never knew you had. I never knew I had a bunch of freckles next to my eye.

PP:
Levels to make the background darker
Saturation for the hair and to change the lip color
Dodging and burning on the face to create more defined cheek bones and to darken the line of the eye
Crop
Neatimage

I will post the before shot after the challenge is over.

Very creative and great execution. I love the fact that you are not looking to the camera or to the front.

Great job! It takes some creativity to do the temperature thing without any numbers and you did it. Great colors and good contrast. 10.

neat. it would be cool if the subject was positioned higher and further to the left so she divided the frame into half black and half white.

Nice use of colour, and I love how you've gotten the hair to look like a flame on her head. Great lighting.
