I took this shot of my sister in-law as she was doing the dishes. She has a mirror over her sink that allows her to still see and engage with visitors who are there. I though this would make an interesting portrait, so I waited for her to look at herself in the mirror. I bounced a flash off the wall to the left however, her kitchen is a bright yellow wich made everything look yellow so I muted the colors a little.

Then this morning I started to play with the photo in black & white and added a little vignetting (dark oval border) to the photo. For a good explanation about vignetting click here. I like sometimes leaving an image for a day or so then come back to it and continue editing, its like seeing it again with new eyes.

Have a great weekend everyone.
