Mimi Honey


Last week it was negative fourty degrees celcius here in Montréal so I did what most Canadians do and headed down south. However, I only went a little bit south-west and ended up in Toronto. At least, negative ten is a lot better than negative fourty! I had a lot of fun editing this quick portraiture of Myriam at the Distillery District in Toronto and used fun nice pastel photoshop actions to make the scene feel a little less like a Canadian winter. What was interesting in the editing process was figuring out how to diffuse the background without losing the colour tones of her clothing, hair and skin. I ended up doing painting her out with a colour mask to separate the background a bit more and just a touch of sharpness. Check out the little catch light glint in her eyes :-P
