Anyway, here is the edit of the photo I shared on Monday (mouseover for original). It might be the favorite of the 32 photos I kept, but it might not be.
I thought about taking it further, but I thought I would experiment with other similar photos from the day to make things interesting. I did the same thing as above, but then for skin softening I took it into PSE.
I'm not really sure. The second one certainly looks a little more processed, and that is not really my goal, especially for a snapshot for a friend, but a portrait? There are opinions on the whole spectrum of options and I just don't know what my opinion is.
But rather than send my friend 10 headshots, I thought I would work on editing one of the full body shots I liked. I took very few because I just cannot get myself to back up!
But I still wanted a black and white. I know this is getting long, trust me, I know, but bear with me for one last photo and edit, if you will.
So there you have it...my edits for this week's Shoot and Edit. Check out Ashley's blog for more portraits!
