Contrary to what others say...I play with lights, shadows, colors, etc... I am a newbie at photography but have often been complemented on my choice of dutching the camera and awesome poses. This photo was taken on Christmas Eve 2009 in my livingroom. The model is my sister. We were quite bored on Christmas Eve and decided to do a photo shoot. The light is straight on her face and I played with more light, color and texture in photo shop. My previous entry was a photo assignment using natural light. There was a cigarette in her hand which explains the smoke that everyone has pointed out. Because of the size requirement of the photos for this contest I had to crop out alot of the picture.
