Kitty Paw…in Color AND Black & White...

August 18, 2010
As you may or may not realize, today was a busy day for me and I’m still catching up on my blog visits. I’m also catching up on my photography challenges. In an effort to get the most bang for my photo, I’m going to share one image for multiple memes. First up, I was trying to take a picture of Kitty Paw the other night. Every time I got near her with the camera, she turned her head. The lighting wasn’t great (as you can tell), but I was able to get something. I thought this shot would be perfect for this week’s RAW(e) theme, which is: green. Kitty Paw’s...

Touch-Up Tuesday

August 11, 2010
Jessica at the Caterpillar Family Blog contacted me last week with an editing challenge. She loves this photo of her son but thinks the background is a little distracting and thought I might be able to help.

This photo was no different. I made an...

Keshia of Domestic Photographic contacted me the other day with a request to remove the color cast from her adorable son’s body. I decided that these shots would be great for Touch-Up Tuesday because color casts can so easily be corrected if you know how to do it!I essentially performed the same steps (minus a few variations including the crop on the second photo) on each of the photos using Adobe Camera...

Before & After

July 21, 2010
I’ve been meaning to edit this photo for Salina for nearly a month. So, as I watch America’s Got Talent…with a crick in my neck (can someone come over and rub my neck?), I thought I’d work on this photo in time to link up with Karli over at The Bonnie 5 for Touch Up Tuesday. Here is Salina’s original photo. Don’t you just love her daughter with the firefighter’s hat? Well, Salina did too, but didn’t like the clutter in the background. I was going to have trouble completely removing it without looking too fake, but I think I’ve improved the...
