I am using a photo of Charlie taken from Instagram. He looks very cute but also determined - a fellow with a big hammer ready to build something.
The first challenge is that the photo is taken from above and his image is quite foreshortened. For example his feet are small compared to his head anyway - because he is only 4 years old - but they are smaller because of the angle. I want this to look OK.
The second challenge is the background. How should I do it. Very simplified but how simplified?
The third challenge is to make it look like him. Actually that is the hardest.
No - the hardest is to make a picture he will like and that will be fun for everyone to look at.
