I ♥ Faces Weekly Challenge

The photo challenge this week at I Faces is all about having a reflection of a face in your photo. Since I did not have any photos in my archives that fit this theme, I decided to have a fun photo shoot with my niece when she was in for a visit last weekend.

Because the weather was so nice and sunny, I set up a mirror outside and took the picture of her reflection in it. She is such a beautiful young lady that it was easy to get a good photo of her, but I did have to play a bit with the angles and the lighting. This is the one that I chose to enter into this weeks challenge. (There is such a sweet innocence in her youthful face and yet true wisdom in her eyes.) I desaturated the color just a bit to obtain a gentle, soft feel.

Love and hugs to my niece Danielle for being so cooperative! You can see other great entries at I Faces.


  1. awesome concept Joanne, and a beautiful neice too!

  2. beautiful shot! I love the angle too!!


  3. I like this shot, but maybe it would have been even better if you would have captured her face in one of the squares.
    But it's still a nice shot.

  4. Thanks for the feedback Suki! I still have lots to learn! My niece has such a long neck and I wanted to get the flower she was holding into the photo as well...

  5. FANTASTIC picture Joanne!!!!

    (P.S. I made my blog private and would love to add you to the list of readers, but don't have your email address. Could you possibly email me your email address and I'll add you right away?)

  6. Beautiful photo. You will have to pass on all these tips to your BFF! Keep up the good work.


Thank you for your lovely comments!
