Photo Club Portraits #3

Another photo from the Bay Area Photo Club portrait field trip in late July. This image is of Kristin. I brought the peacock feather with me to use as a prop, and since she was one of the first subjects I shot, I thought I'd try it. In postprocessing, I added the vintage overlay and toned the image slightly -- thought it helped the overall feel of the photo. Nikon D200, 80mm, f/5.6, 1/250 sec, light from the Elinchrom Quadra high right.

  1. I understand the feather is being used to frame her face, but the bright colored eye of the feather is a distraction for me. I either want to look at the feather or her eyes, but not both at the same time, which is what my eyes are trying to do. I like the exposure, texture and color of the photo. I think the photo would stand on its own without the feather.
