While I have been embarrassingly slow to process and post any new images, both online here and at Google+, I thought I would upload this particular image from my last round of street photography in downtown Vancouver.  I wanted to capture an angle of a building and theatre sign that has been photographed and documented thousands of times, from a perspective that was unique (for me).  The pigeonon the lower left was not added in post production, it was honestly in flight and I believe it only adds a living component to this image. Processed in Lightroom and Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro 2 to really pop the textures in the brick and stone, and on the sign.

Sim Janjua, Make-Up Artist: Portfolio Images by Craig Roberts

2011-01-15 035-Edit for print_FINAL.jpg

Back at it again this past weekend, working alongside my colleague Brian Vo, creating some promotional shots to highlight the great techniques of new make-up artist Sim Janjua, from 'Studio Elle' here in the Lower Mainland. Very fortunate to be working again with Rani Hayden, with whom we had a blast doing some casual photographs with her and husband Matt back in the summer.  She has a truly engaging personality, and Sim's work really cut through in so many of these images with Rani in her traditional Indian wedding dress!

Just goes to show that you can take great portraits, but it is that attention to detail that working with a MUA provides that really takes those images to the next level.
