Working With Whatcha Got

As much as I liked the pose in this image, I wasn't crazy about the tonality and contrast. Needed something more.

In camera Sepia setting

Once again, I started with an okay image, but knowing that I wanted it to be a sepia toned image, I tried the "sepia" setting in-camera. I wasn't terribly impressed with the results, so I brought the image into Photoshop and worked the image in Nik Silver Efex Pro. The final image has some other minor edits (skin retouching, blemish reduction.... stuff like that.)

Final image

The final image has been cropped, edited, sharpened a little. I think the closer crop makes it all the more intimate and personal.
