I just wanted to say that today I uploade a new pic, this time of my friend Jennifer. I find taking picutres in a natural setting to be a great way to create an image that doesn't have the usuall look. It helps to use a fast lens as well, so you can blur the background, while keeping the image sharp.
I did do some post processing to make the image look even better. Overall this is one of my better efforts. I hope you like it as well.
