Jessie’s Avatar

After yesterday’s blog post, Jessie, my daughter, wanted to post a comment to say, thank you for all the nice responses she received. But, she wanted an avatar by her name (Hey it is important for a 15-year-old to have an avatar… I guess.) So, in helping Jess create an “Gravatar” for her comments, I realized we really didn’t have anything current that she could use. Then, this morning I remembered a quick test snap I made of her in our doorway soon after I bought my Fujifilm X-Pro 1. It was literally a, “Hey Jess, stand here for a sec and let me take your pic.” kind of shot. So after playing with it in Lightroom, then bringing it into Photoshop, adding a few layer masks and some blending options and a stock border I came up with this. She liked it and thought I would share it with you. She says it’s her “Snow White” look. I made the image above a rollover so you can see the before and after.
