photoblog image Fountain Hall

Fountain Hall

 

I'm shooting a wedding at Fountain's Abbey in a few weeks time and so went up there to check out the location. This is from the Hall where the wedding itself will take place, but downstairs in the public area where there is an exhibition of costumes on at the moment.

 

I had to add some colour to the mannequin (which was bright white) and clone out the joins in the arms and neck but I couldn't successfully change the angular forehead and nose that makes it obvious it isn't a real person. Or at least not without spending far more time than the picture was worth :)

You've done an amazing piece of work there Paul, and the light is wonderful. A lovely shot

You are virtually there in your transformation Paul

I wish I could say that about a certain other person...
A delightful shot... (No need to make her look anymore human than she does right now.)
Nicely done, Paul - competition for the bride to be!
I think the sharp nose and high forehead (as I see them in this shot) adds a sort of delicate, upper-class, refined air look to the model. Its a wonderful shot and good editing.
