Poikilotherm by ReachingFlames Poikilotherm by ReachingFlames
I told myself a few weeks ago that I need more work on portraits. And this is an outcome of that thought.
It wasn't easy to get this one as sharp as I wanted... 1.8 and a 1 second shutter is hard when being so close to someone.

My assignment wanted a photo with warm and cold light.

The term derives from Ancient Greek, poikilos (ποικίλος), meaning "varied"; and thermos (θερμός), meaning "heat".
A poikilotherm is a plant or animal whose internal temperature varies along with that of the ambient environmental temperature.

Model: Phui Phui Sin

Good Job... I like how you made the blurred blue and red background, focusing on the face is excellent.
