This month’s verse was chosen by my IG followers! I asked everyone to vote on Psalm 147:3 and 42:8, and 42:8 won by just one vote! 🙂 Doing this portrait was one of my hardest to date. I am in NO way a pro at night photography, and don’t have the proper equipment either, so getting this feel ended up coming down to editing. This portrait was my 3rd attempt going out to my piano under a willow tree on our property, and was actually taken at 8am! (Not sure if I’m supposed to tell that or not. haha) I simply darkened up the tones of everything a LOT during editing and did some selective darkening to obtain the look I wanted.
