These are a start to a series of portraits I am shooting in the studio using the widest aperture as possible, these were shot at f/2.2. I did a lot of manipulation in photoshop to try and practice some new techniques. Overall I color corrected, enlarged eyes and mouths on all three photos, adjusted some aspects of the face and cleaned their overall face. I don't like manipulating photos but this was something I wanted to try. I am going to reshoot these with a ring-flash and now manipulate them.
