I wanted to share with you some of the things I do when I edit. I throw the word 'edit' around all the time...my kids even know that, "Mama is editing pictures today". There are several reasons why a picture coming SOOC (straight out of camera) might need edited. For this example that I posted here is what I did. Cropped, Removed Redness from face/eyes (it was a chilly November morning), lifted eyes, brightened eyes, enhanced the coloration of the background and body features (hair, clothes...) Brightened the overall picture. Here's the SOOC and Final:
I don't always have to do so much...but sometimes with the weather conditions and what my overall preferences are I might spend 5-10 min. on a picture.
So, THIS is what I'm doing when I say I'm editing - and why my shoulders constantly hurt from sitting at the computer! :) I love it!
sure could use a gift certificate for Christmas for a nice massage.
