Paula wanted a backwoods, Appalachian feel to the images, so I suggested a park outside of Humble that has a collection of log buildings. Paula's friend Dennis Hahn who does reenactments volunteered to pose and did an outstanding job. Kathy, his wife, came along dressed in a fantastic coat. Although we concentrated on photographing Dennis, I couldn't resist getting at least one photo of Kathy.
I have tried several manipulations styles and I think that many of them work although I am personally partial to the pencil sketch styles.
