This portrait was taken out by the train tracks where there was an old barn. Like I said, it was really dark, and most of my pictures from this shoot turned out blurry because I accidentally had it on Manual focus, and wasn’t paying attention to that. I used the spot healing brush on her cheeks, and the paint brush to airbrush her face a little, then I also brushed her eyes to brighten them a little, but the way she is looking the eyes look a little scary. I also adjusted the exposure and temperature colors to brighten it.

Isn’t she a cute little bugger? This is my sister Sohpia after my other syblings piano recital. We were eating creamies after, and I happened to have my camera so I was able to get some cute shots of her while she was looking at mom. I tried to use the replace color adjustment, but it did work for me, so I ended up selecting the shirt and using a hue/saturation adjustment layer on that selection.

I edited the first image since it was just as gray as the second, and I really liked the color of the water. I was taking them, thinking I was going to use the swimmers for the environmental picture, and I took the other picture of Chandler and Brinley while Sara was starting her tri, using the excuse of “I’m trying to figure out lighting.” I combined the two using match color, and then because their faces were so dark, I also added a brightness contrast layer and lightened their face a little.
