…and now for something different. It’s great to play and try new things. It keeps my eye fresh and my curiosity fed. My sister in law, Deirdre Finnigan is a professional actor, dancer, singer. I’ve got to admit I love being in a family full of professional singers, musicians and artists. Our holiday get togethers are full of music, something I treasure.

Deirdre asked me to shoot a headshot of her for upcoming shows and to simply have on file. I was happy to oblige! In return I asked if she would sit for me and bring along some wardrobe options. I have posted the results below, which involved playing around with distressed overlays, tinting and partial black and white/toned conversions. The idea was to evoke a more Victorian feel. Which do you prefer? What’s your take?
