It *is* hard to narrow down to just one photo as the best for the month!
Here is one of my favorites– I’ve really been loving portrait photography, and I’m learning how to seek out shade in harsh mid-day sun for the best lighting, and that in order to get the best portait, I should really open up my aperture a bit so that the whole face is in focus, not just one bit of it (Although it is tempting to use the largest aperture for wonderful bokeh!). I’m also loving playing with my pictures in Photoshop, and applying all the various actions I’ve downloaded on them. This is so addicting- I wish I had more willing models in my life to practice on!
So for this month’s photo, I picked the following from a recent photoshoot I did (to see the rest of the pictures from this shoot, see my post below, titled “6.29.11”) I just love the way her eyes sparkle in this shot!
