My contribution for this weeks raw edit. Beautiful baby by the way )
I started with cropping the photo to put more focus on this lovely baby, and removed
the “antennas” over the baby’s head. Added a little split toning, adjusted the colors and
contrast and added some vignetting. I think it turned out ok ) I used Photoshop and Lightroom for the whole shabam.
Just fumbled around in Photoshop today and came up with this:
Size 1200×800 JPEG Canon EOS 400D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5 (Reversed)
Download if you like )
I took the original photo by doing reversed macro (see video below to learn more), but I thought it was too blurry but still pretty so I just had to make something out of it. Just adjusted the contrast/colors and added some bokeh to the mix.
So I took this photo of my niece back in 2008, I had just purchased my first Canon DSLR camera and knew nothing about photography. Back then I thought this photo was pretty ok, but now I almost can’t stand to look at the original. So I decided to make the photo better. This photo was taken in front of a church with gravestones all around. Not exactly great to have in a portrait so I removed those. There were also a window on the church wall beside her head which I thought were distracting, so I removed that too. Next I gave the photo a little depth and blurred the background and finished it off with a few color and contrast adjustments. It’s so great to see that I have evolved over the years. I notice things now that I didn’t even think about when I first started taking photos. It can only get better from this point on! )
