Challenge: Crossdress (Basic Editing)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix F30
Location: Our kitchen
Date: Mar 11, 2007
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/90
Galleries: Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Mar 11, 2007

Our kitchen temporarily got turned into a studio, we had bits of cardboard stuck to the walls as a background, a large piece of black cloth was draped over the radiator to disguise it, and one of my flatmates was holding a piece of cardboard over a large stand-up lamp to diffuse the light from above. The bits of cardboard weren't big enough and kept falling down, the lighting possibilities were somewhat limited, the kitchen table kept getting in the way - all things considered, I'm delighted with this shot! It was all quite entertaining really.

Editing: brightness/contrast, hue/sat, channel mixer adjustment layer (switched to monochrome, reduce red channel to 0% and increase green channel to 100%, reduce layer opacity to 52%), usm, neat image, add white border, resize.

Oh, yay, that went well! Thanks for all the comments :)

One of my top picks. Hair and facial expression are just great, and I like the somewhat muted colors.

Very engaging. Well lighted, and I like the angle. Not sure about title.

I like it, though it's not quite so clear as I'd prefer it be.

Nice pic, subtlety in the shades of black shows your lighting is okay.

Ambiguous sex. Nice shot though.
