I entered a few of my images below into this competition. I love this early morning light along with the hazy background. With every photo i take i am always aiming to shoot super early in the morning or just before dusk. I love creating backlit dreamy images. These were all shot in the field next to my house early one morning … before i took the kids to school –

I entered the ‘Fairytale’ February Child Photo Competition

I found this competition only a couple of days before the last submission day so i didn’t have time to take another image specifically for it so i used one that i had taken the week prior of my daughter in the studio. I wanted to turn her into a fairy so i looked on youtube and found this video which gave me an idea what to do –

I downloaded some fairy wings brushes and added them in photoshop. I did this in lots of layers and kept building it up to try and make it look as real as i could (to my current photoshop abilities). Once i was happy with it i flattened all the layers and then used the dodge and burn tool to enhance the highlights and shadows on the dress and wings.

I didn’t win but it was exciting taking part and i am planning on entering the Black & White competition next…and this time i will be able to spend more time doing it.
