100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS-Ishrath, 3/100 © Carol Nelson Fine Art



Day 3. This is one of three fabulous photos sent to me by Ishrath in India. Ishrath writes a blog/website called www.wanderingmist.com which I find very interesting and insightful.
Look at this photo - how could it not turn out to be a good portrait? Ishrath photographed this lady in the Jaipur area of India.
For purchase information, please see my website.

How lovely. I love the way you chose to crop it. How do you mix your skin tones Carol?

Ishrath's portrait is gorgeous, Carol. Oh boy! I am having so much fun watching your 100 portraits project!

Beatiful portrait from a great picture. I love the crop you chose and how the colour of the scarf is prominent, but does not take away from the stunning face. Well done!

They all look wonderful. I am sure the subjects will really appreciate them also.

Carol, wow this is great! Can you tell us more about how you are doing these, maybe a couple of process photos? How long does it take, and after the first ten tell us if anything has changed? I am fascinated, and proud to be Portrait #0.
