Before & After

March 31, 2010
It’s been a while since I’ve done a Before & After, but the photography board ladies threw out a few challenges today, so I thought I’d take advantage of another editing opportunity. I’ll consider this my reward for finishing up my work assignments this week – so what if I was staying up late and waking up early for several days because I procrastinated…I got it done!First up, meet William. It looks like he’s taking a bath and he’s so cute, but the photograph needs a little work. For this edit, I cropped the photo and then ran the photo...

Before & After

March 02, 2010
You all know I love editing challenges, and this has got to be one of the cutest little boys ever (although I probably say that about every child I run across). I could get lost in his eyes. However, we had some shadow issues, so my goal was to lighten, brighten and sharpen. I may have actually overdone it on this first one – what do you think? With this first photo, I selected his face and did a levels adjustment. I then applied Coffeeshop’s Baby Powder Room action and lightly applied each of the steps – mostly focusing on lightening the shadow that was created by his hat...
