Roman Face Study #2, St. Louis Art Museum



I keep returning to shoot to this ancient Roman bust at the St. Louis Art Museum because it just feels so iconic.  This time, I'm giving our old pal the faux-Fresson treatment and I'm very happy with the result.

Technical: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-85mm f2.8-f4 in macro mode, ISO 400, f/4.0 @ 1/60s, handheld, manual focus.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6 first, then in Nik Color Efex Pro to create the Fresson sytle.

Looks great, Preston. I really like the image and the stylizing.

Thank you, Ray. I made a print on the Exhibition Fiber, but I think it really needs a warm matte paper. I found I have a partial box of the original Crane's Museo paper that is no longer available, likely because it it unbleached and has a brighness around 82%. I might as well use it up!
