It’s really great to get to do an engagement portrait. In this case, the couple’s family sent me their photo (which was taken by another photographer) to ‘work my magic’ on. I decided to use my normal mix of brushes to get the desired effect, but for the end product…I felt that they might want a more contemporary look.
So, I decided to have the final piece Modern. Edgy. Beautiful. Doing it as a brushed aluminum metal print to show off the painted effect in a unique way. A coat of opaque white ink is added to the metal surface and then the image is printed on top. It’s then printed on a 1″ deep brushed aluminum box that is ready to hang.
They should be opening it today (or in the next couple of days after their honeymoon). Hope they enjoy it!
