As I promised you I did edit another photo from MIPP last seminar by Bjorn Thomassen. This time I am letting you in on the editing of the photo. I just need your opinion. Sometimes it’s very easy to get carried away with the editing process
This is the starting image which has already been edited in camera raw. I find it to be a little flat and wanted to pop out the colours of the dress.
Next I wanted to boost a little the contrast and remove all the distractions so that the eye remains only on the model.
This was working fine but I still think thought that the back ground needed to be given a little more separation from the skin tones. So I masked the model and worked solely on the background using channels.
Just a little more retouches, sharpening here and there, softening of the skin and a little glow and there you are.
So there you have it. What do you think?
It’s now your turn to give some feedback. I love to be criticized on my work. You might see things which I didn’t even look at. I thank you all in advance and thank you for sparing some time to see my blog.
