Easter portrait

Family gatherings are a great time to get some practice photographing people – especially if your family is as kind and obliging as mine is. Last weekend I brought along my camera to our Easter get-together. Using my new portrait lense, I snapped this shot of my sister-in-law Lisa in the kitchen.

In editing the shot, I took the opportunity to try applying what I’d learned from a recent tutorial created by Alec Johnson on using LAB color in Photoshop. Working with Lisa’s lovely expression, I was very pleased with the relative ease and effectiveness of this technique!
