It's Fix-It Friday where I take an original photo provided by I Heart Faces, and edit it to my choosing. You can check out the others who have done it here.
Here is the original:
Lightroom is my editor of choice for this photo. First thing, I cropped out the walkway-- it was very distracting. Once I got the crop I wanted for a full length shot, there was still a tiny bit of walkway left, so I cloned it out.
Next I added a tiny touch of warmth, contrast, and clarity to complete my first edit.
For the next one I cropped in closer to get just her face and upper body. There were a few extras hanging out in the frame, like her chair, so I cloned those out.
Then I brightened her eyes and added clarity to her face to bring it out a bit. Again, I added some warmth because I love warm pictures!
And finally, I cropped a little bit closer and added a black & white effect with a green filter. Her coat was then blown out, so I brought down the exposure and brightness a bit just on the coat.
Everyone has a style they love... which one is your favorite?
