Emily / Viveca - How I Created a Vintage Portrait of Myself

This is one that I did a while back but I thought it was worth writing about the technique I used to create this image. Emily was a relative of mine on my Mother’s side of the family, and I liked this portrait of her looking ever so slightly self-conscious, which is how I usually […]
