Week 25: 52 Week Creative Portrait Challenge

My challenge for Week 25 was to edit a portrait to look like a traditional Victorian-era portrait. My model Gwen was up for anything, so I dressed her in a vintage black cape and set her against a black backdrop to create a somber portrait. I then used the Google Nik Silver Efex Photoshop Plugin to emulate the same style as an old-fashioned Victorian photo. What do you think? Does the editing make this photo look like a Victorian portrait? Let me know in the comments below!
