Reference photo critique




Hi
This is my daughter Janni with her daugther the day she was named Freja.

Taken with my old SLR camera Minolta 101 and a 200 asa film, in late afternoon soft sun. I composed it as it is.

When I do the painting I will make a little more space around them, don

Allan, Be careful that you get the values correct in your portrait. Sometimes it is easier to see something if it is in black and white - especially if your photo colors are off. You are right in that you need a lot more space around these figures.

It's fun to have another Dane around. Tak.

Tak skal du have Karin.

I too believe that value of light is a basic way to percieve our surroundings. How could anyone claime that a colorblind mammal couls see, if it were not for the differences in light? I leave it to the wise to prove if anything is colorblind. Don
