Photo Friday Textures Winner Jenelle

What camera did you use? I used my Nikon D7000 with 18-55mm lens.

What settings did you use? Camera settings- f/8 , exposure time 1/160sec ISO 100. I used my Ganz 250di studio lights one on the background and one on the subject.

What inspired this shot? This shot was inspired when i was watching my 18month old cuddling up to her dad with her soft baby skin against his stubbly face and the difference in textures. And that’s when I thought of trying to show the comparison of two textures. My Hubby was unwilling to shave as he’s trying to grow a beard ha-ha, so my dad volunteered happily and stopped shaving for almost a week and then said goodbye to his moustache which he has had for more than 40 years!

Did you edit this image, if so what did you do and with what program? I edited this photo in Adobe Light room. I increased the clarity on the unshaven side of the face and brought down the clarity on the shaven side just a little. I brought the whites up just a little and increased the contrast.

Do you have any advice for our community of photographers? My advice to other keen photographers would be practice, practice, practice. Get to know your camera and what it can do for you like the back of your hand, there’s always something new to learn.  Think outside the square, be creative and have fun 🙂 Get to know other like-minded people with a passion for photography, they can be inspiring, encouraging and have heaps of helpful advice…. and hopefully you can provide the same to them! Don’t ever give up or doubt yourself, not everyone will like your photography but as long as you do and you can see the art in it that’s all that matters 🙂   

Where was this photo taken? This photo was taken in my games room which has been converted to a photography studio.

Where was this photo taken? I enjoy going to River way to take lots of photos of the beautiful scenery while the kids go for a swim in the pool.  The photo I entered in Camera House Photo Friday ‘minimalism’ theme was taken at Pinnacles Gallery.
