This is my interpretation of my shot used for the cover of the latest issue of Nailpro Magazine. I cropped it a little and vignetted a little too. The interesting part is that this is a composite of two shots. The hand is from a different frame because they liked her face on this one, but the nails (the most important part) looked better on another shot.
I’m going to the beach for a week, so please don’t forget about me. I’m going to upload another shot just in case I get a chance (and an internet connection) to write a post during the week. My other blog will be on auto-pilot though, with a new image every day.
