Editing Model Shots

Ok, have not been out taking many photos recently, except for the Sunflower shoot, I am going to stretch out posting over this week.

Have not been idle, and have been working on my “Editing” skills and processing photos taken by my Girlfriend Kerri who is being mentored by the talented Julie-Anne this is one from a model shoot they did together recently.

I thought I would post a before and after shot.

The Before shot

All the processing was done in Photoshop CS5, you have more control in “Lightroom” , but is quicker in CS5.

A brief desription of what was done

Skin – softened, Eyes (Pupil) – sharpened, White around Eyes – lightened, Blemishes – cloned or spot healed out, Background, either Dodged (lightened) or erased and painted in with White, Watermark added by  a “Brush”  , The final result should still looks like the original photo, just better…. well that is the expected result 🙂  …….  still so much to learn….and yes I know it is floating with no shadows, but this one was more for practise.

The After Photo

The photo was taken with a Canon  550D with 24-105 Lens, with two off Camera Flashes.

Cheers Dave

I have discovered I have a love for life and doing anything creative, and I am constantly striving to build, make, create and photograph things , I live my you can learn to do anything, but the hardest part is you d o not have time to do everything - follow my journey as I try and do as much as I can with the time I have. I live in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Queensland Australia, on top of a mall mountains, surrounded by thousands of acres of bush land. This is sight is a basically a diary of my day to day adventures, it will have everything from Portrait photo sessions, craft projects, yard word, Trail Cam footage.
