Photo Friday Funny Faces Winner John!


What camera did you use?

Canon EOS 40D.  Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 Lens.

What inspired this shot?

I’ve entered the Canon Photo5 competition for the past few years, but with the arrival of a baby daughter I just ran out of time last year. Not wanting to miss out completely I thought I’d have a go at the briefs anyway – and this was my spaghetti portrait. Fortunately my eldest likes to eat dry pasta!

Did you edit this image, if so what did you do and with what program?

I use Lightroom 4. With this image I converted to black and white, adjusted the curves and brought out the eyes with the adjustment brush.

Do you have any advice for our community of photographers?

For me it’s about two things. First it’s about enjoying taking photos and second it’s about learning: composition, light, colours, technique, editing and inspiration. There’s always more to learn.

Where was this photo taken?

I think the photo was taken in the back garden. It was getting too messy with cooked spaghetti indoors!
