This is the original picture of my granddaguther and her friend at the Festival of Native Arts. I wanted to use this because I can edit the picture three times with different futures.
I thought this picture was pretty dark and one could not really see the native mask in the back, so I lighted the picture using fill light. I made the dark background look light.
I wanted the total focus on the two girls and black the backside to cut out anyone else that might take the spot light from the two best friends using shadow.
I decided to go Black and White, its been a long time since I got to see black and white pictures because now days, everyone uses color.
