Colorizing fantasy photography adds mood

I was having fun with some of my older portraits. Photoshop offers so many possibilities of changing subtle nuances of a vision.

Happy Fourth of July!

For women, the right to vote was a huge step. We have come a long way in a relatively short time. We are thankful for the freedoms we are blessed with. I photographed this a couple years ago while in a small town in California. There was a parade and this was one of the groupings. I loved how accurate the costumes were.

Schedule your fantasy session for a truly unique personal piece of art

Why not schedule a consultation with me to discover how to portray your fantasy as a unique statement and piece of personal fine art. The sessions take a couple of an hour or two and I sometimes do some additional glam beauty portraits. Contact me at lindaolsenart@gmail.com to set up a consultation prior to your session. Most often, costumes need to be procured or made as well as props. I do have quite a few already in my studio in Neptune Beach.

Photographing outdoors lends background for conceptual portraits

After the studio session and before the rain, I took Pam to a small park to complete the ideas for the Huntress conceptual photos. It was really hot and a few people were lingering in the park so we worked quickly. We were able to only do so much in the studio because of space so having nature as our backdrop really was nice. I did some artistic tinting in post production with Photoshop in portraying a more antique look.
