An Abstract Portrait of Grace

An Abstract Portrait of Grace

This week I am sharing an abstract image of Grace. In order to get the ‘misty’ effect, she put a plastic folder across her face!

    Hi Victoria, there I was thinking you had a fancy camera lens, but in fact it’s just a plastic folder! How clever. I like the whole effect of the picture, very different.

    I’d never have thought to put a plastic folder across the face for a photo – what a great idea! #MySundayPhoto

    How clever! It looks like you’re really enjoying your photography at the moment. And who would’ve thought you could get that effect with a plastic folder

    I LOVE this! How creative! There is nothing as fun as experimenting with your camera and the kids are always so great at coming up with cool new ideas to try. Outside the box, awesome photo!

    Loving the lo-tech approach to soft focus…I assumed it would be a hi-tech app not a plastic folder!

    Brilliant idea, I love the folder over the face trick

    Thank you for linking up

    Love the plastic folder trick – what a good idea! Love the composition of this and the capture of Grace’s eyes in the top part of the photo. Beautiful 🙂

    She’s a clever girl to use the plastic folder! Great way of taking a portrait photo.

    What a lovely abstract – and you really notice Graces eyes.

  14. February 28, 2016 / 12:49 am

    Wow! What a great idea. I love the composition. I will definitely have a go with this with Olivia. 🙂

    That’s fabulous! Another way to achieve soft focus is to stretch a pop sock or the end of a pair of tights over the camera! x

    What a great idea for a striking and different composition. i will have to remember the plastic folder trick for future use too!
