Those Eyes

Uploaded: November 08, 2006


From a recent family session. All three of these kids have incredible eyes! We were outside, so I used Photoshop to convert to bw, then I used a layermask to blow out the background all around them. I also used a high key diffused glow filter for the dreamy quality. Entering this in DD for all the digital work done.
