I don't usually do very extreme edits on photos, especially on photographs of people. I prefer to leave people as they are, with the exception of basic touchups and a bit of smoothing, if necessary. But once in a while I feel like doing something a bit different, something fun. I have been wanting to do a "vampire" type photoshoot, but I do not have a makeup artist available. So I decided to have a go at it with photoshop.
Some layers, textures, and some time I ended up with this. Not amazing, but I did have fun with it. Now I DO want to try it with a makeup artist and get it right in camera.
