No need for a suntan

A couple of days ago I wrote about the difference between colour and monochrome. For this portrait(s) I have preferred the sepia option. It has the same effect as monochrome in that the eye is not distracted by a bright colour in the background or a bright colour in a piece of clothing.

You may prefer sepia just because you prefer it, and sepia has the added advantage that it makes you look like you have a tan. Simply increase the contrast a little and your tan increases too. On the right I have added a vignette. There is no great interest in the corners of the photo and by using the vignette it puts the main emphasis on the subjects of the portrait.

Happy snapping
