Love this Face!

Poor Alex. He always seems to be the unlucky victim hanging around within arm's reach whenever I need a 'test subject' to photograph! I was doing a shoot last night with my studio lights and wanted to do a quick check of my lighting, so I plunked him down in front of me for a couple of clicks.

It's hit and miss with Alex. Sometimes he's more than willing to give me a genuine smile. Other times his smile looks forced...and sometimes he looks downright annoyed.

Looks like I caught him in the right mood this time. I tried a couple of different actions on this shot from Lolly's Punch Pack .
On Photo #2 I used Lolly's Milk Chocolate B&W.
On Photo #3 I used Lolly's Antique Color

Who could NOT love that face? Made me break right into a big smile just looking at him! So glad he cooperated for you.

Fine looking young subject - like that smile and those eyes. Of all the actions I lost when my PC crashed last fall - Lolly's are the ones I miss the most. I love her chocolates!
