i heart faces Fix-It Friday
I decided to participate in last week's i heart faces Fix-It Friday. Every week they post a picture and a few experts will show us how they fixed it in post-processing and then anyone else can join in, too, and link up to their own blog post.
(It seems a little funny to see another baby on my blog, huh?)
This is the before:
And here is my after:
I used Lightroom 2.0 first and then Photoshop Elements to finish up the background.
In Lightroom I adjusted the white balance and exposure and upped the clarity a bit. I then used the Adjustment Brush to brighten up her eyes and soften her skin just a bit.
In PSE I added the old paper photo effect and used a layer mask to mask out the subject.
It was fun to work with someone else's baby, especially those blue eyes. You can really make blue eyes pop. When I try to brighten up Andrew's eyes I feel like they take on a whole new color, which isn't really what I want to do.
Anyway, I feel like I learned something new which is what I'm aiming for. I'd love to hear from you if you have any comments or suggestions.
