My part 2 {shoot and edit}




I decided to use light room for half of the edit instead of photo shop. I opened up and got my histogram and this was the before photo.

I first bumped the exposure up from +0.66 to +0.84.

2nd I adjusted the contrast from  +7 to +43.

Then I adjusted the clarity from -1 to +59.

I also bumped the vibrance up to +7 to + 70.





After I adjusted those I tranfered the photo to photo shop to add my actions. I cropped the photo. My first edit I ran was called "ivory bleach". I took the layer desatration pop off and left the other layers as is.

This is my first edit result-





My 2nd edit I did I used the action called jubilee. I cropped the photo. I Changed the layer opacity of drama contrast from 70% to 100% I then made the photo layer with another layer opacity and took the layer bleach pop off to make it more suttle looking.

This is my 2nd edit result-





The 3rd and last edit I decided to do was called pink fade. I cropped the photo. The only thing I did was adjust the opacity on the layer pink soft light and bumped it up a little to give it pretty pink hues and tones.

This is my 3rd edit result-





This is all 3 edited versions put together to show differences of each type.

I'm thankful to finally let go of some demons in my past and to move on and hopefully the future will be a lot of better since I let go of some burdens in my life.

This was taken at a party over the summer. I actually cut the cupcake out of the picture and put it on a white background. Then I added a action to the whole photo and this was the end result.

Great job Tiffany - what I love about your first edit is that I can see all the details. If you want to just copy and paste the button from my blog, that'll work. :)

Great edits! My favorite one is 1 though - I love how the ice just seems to "crack and pop" on the page... almost as if they're starting to melt and shine! :)

Tiffany said...
