‘Among the few useful accessories I have in my closet, I honestly have no girls hidden among them.’ This was my confession to Steven when after trying on several clothes and hats he suggested we needed a new accessory, a girl.
After short convincing and explanation of our need for new accessories Marie agreed to come over to join our photo shoot.
Despite my clumsiness in taking photos of girls, Marie did great job with posing so she made it really easy for me. Such a wonderful girl.
A bit about montage on first photo. While removing the brick wall background I also lost some of her hair. At first I tried to restore her hair cloning it from same photo, but I had to admit that photoshopping the hair is a real task. The first attempts did not look acceptable to me so I surfed through the rest of the photos of her looking for some nice hair mass. So I copied hair from another photo, skewed it to half of the original length and got this nice fluffy hair. I know I may have exaggerated a bit with the hair but I think the result looks cool. Background of the final photo is a radial gradient from Photoshop, following color adjustments were done on Picasa (now on Mac!) and final noise removal on iPhoto.
Many thanks to Marie for agreeing to join the photo shoot on such a short notice :)
