A personality portrait for Photo Journalism... of Justin, my brother.

I used the strobe and softbox again to get the little "kiss" of light (as my PJ teacher calls it) on him while keeping the backround in that ambiant light... No Photoshop here except for just a slight dodge on his face and then to burn that light down in front.

I took this less than 12 hours ago.. :)


  1. thanks mariah! i don't have photoshop, but i'm using both corel paintshop pro and photoscape- they seem to work well! awesome photo of justin, btw!

  2. Are you liking PJ, or still not so much? Nice shot, I love the color.

  3. Ahh.. well.. Pretty much the only reason I enjoy PJ is because it challenges me and I think it helps me grow.. Plus the teacher is really great.

    It is really sweet to create special effects, especially when you do it all in camera! :)

  4. yeah...that's why I'd love to do that class. I feel like there's so much more to learn.

  5. online class, in case you don't read my blog. It's a self paced course and would work great for me, what with all my kids!
    ;0) I'm jealous that you get to go to a bonafide school...

  6. cool picture!
    i missss Justtttinn!

  7. ah, justinnn!
    i miss the ba-jeebers outta him.
    for seriously.

  8. I just wish you could have heard him play! He's so good... :)
