Theresa, A Portrait

I'm back guys. Yeah had a short break in the States, my first break in about 2 years. It feels good. Well apart from the little bit of jet-lag that has plagued me (I don't normally suffer from jet-lag).

This is an image that is part of my portraits with Glasses project. Thanks guys for the titles you all suggested in the first post in this series. I will be posting some more to complete the full picture.

Beautifully taken!
Jide Alakija: Thanks Chris.
Very nicely captured with this side light!
Jide Alakija: The key is all in the lighting (of course it helps when you have a good face too). I experimented quite a bit with various directions on the light in the project.
Removing the glasses gives a better view of her beautiful eyes and her pose, looking off to the side and into the distance gives great charm to this portrait. Well done, Jide.
gorgeous portrait! that is really superb
