This portrait was taken a couple of weeks ago. It was a nice day and there was a convenient green background. A natural background with no centres of interest is a good choice for portrait work as interest is directed towards the person. Look at the chink of light through the tree. It is distracting and I was tempted to airbrush it away. I decided against it but it is a simple process with things like leaves and bushes.

On the right I have converted to monochrome and increased tone. It is also a little darker but all changes are matters of personal choice and the bottom line is that I prefer these changes.

Happy snapping
