The younger sister, once more looking rather older than she is.

This is a quite intimate picture, this is a close up look at another human being, but without the eye contact some think essential.  It is really all about those eyelashes and that length of hair hanging down across her cheek: these are the only parts of the image that are sharp – in terms of focus, everything else has been left to look after itself.  The 105mm lens was used wide open at f2.8 for all of these pictures.

Earlier images in this series, with context, are here: 1; 2; 3; 4; 5.

Technique: D700 with 105mm Nikkor lens; 1600 ISO; window light; Lightroom; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Cool Tones II preset, and adding a moderate coffee tone; 18 Apr 2017.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
