Day 220; Elijah in the Dark

Tonight's photo is a portrait of my brother Elijah. When taking it the goal was to get a photo like the one of Noah I posted a while ago (found here), but it ended up going in a whole other direction. Elijah's darker hair, eyes, and skin made the faded look I used on Noah impossible and I couldn't get the lighting quite right. Plus, he couldn't pull off the serious, stare-into-your-soul look I captured on Noah.   While editing I toyed around with several possibilities, but I settled on this very dramatic black and white look.

  1. As was the case with Noah's portrait, the lighting in this is just superb, Grace.
    How sweet they are to pose for you too!!! :-)
