    This is a photo I shot of my sister a couple weeks ago...I managed to grab her when she was waiting for her girly friends. I got a new Carl Zeiss lens and wanted to try it out. Anyway, we have an ugly backyard, so my sister grabbed this zig-zag blanket some old lady gave us, and used it as a backdrop. Not the best backdrop...

    Anyway, 6x6 Ilford HP5 film, scanned w/Nikon Coolscan 5000...in Photoshop, I made a duplicate layer, and did a Gaussian blur Overlay blend mode. It really pumps up the contrast. My favorite technique, but I think I use it too much!

    This is a great image. I really like the contrast, I will have to try that technique. Great job!

    My sister better not stumble on this site...she despises J. Lo!

    As for the sunglasses...this was probably the first time in YEARS I've seen her wear sunglasses.

    I don't know about the J. Lo thing, but what is she doing tomorrow nite? Kidding.......... I think the background really works in this shot. It gives the shot a much more 3D effect for me with her head popping out against the background.
