This week on EDIT ME we have an opportunity (until Saturday) to edit a photo from one of my faves, Ashley Sisk. Very intimidating, I tell ya. She is a master at what she does. Check out this gorgeous babe SOOC. . .
|Photo taken by Ashley Sisk|
Let's see if I can remember this. . .
To begin with, I brought up the photo in Lightroom and brigtened up the photo by increasing fill light and exposure. Increased blacks a bit. Sharpened. I also messed around with shadows and highlights. I really loved the light that was coming in from the window on his face. So lovely. I may have increased it a little too much and blew out the highlights. Well, not may have-- I know I blew them out, but that sun looked so warm. I did use recovery to help a litle bit, but it was changing his skin tone too much so I held back. I cropped and changed the angle ever so slightly. I also cloned out the very corner of the chair. I didn't find the line super distracting, but decided just to fade out the edge a bit.
Then I converted it to a black and white and used a mocha tint in photoshop from Paint the Moon.
I decided it was looking a little muddy so I went back to my first edit.
So, this is my final photo for consideration. . .
