For today's post I thought I'd participate again in Pixel Perfect's weekly Before & After blog hop. I love this hop because it is amazing to me to see how much work actually goes into making a photo really pop. The difference between SOOC (straight out of camera) & the post-edit shots can sometimes blow your socks off!
Sometimes on my photos I barely do anything except maybe up the contrast a bit; other times I like to give the whole photo a makeover. This week, since I have more young adults & senior portrait sessions in my future, my photographic goal has been to learn how to "makeover" these young people in my photos to make them look their best & downplay some of their temporary blemishes. I have been practicing on some photos I took of my sister a few years ago. I thought I'd acknowledge my photographic learning process here by sharing one of those photos in this week's blog hop.
What do you think? I use Paint Shop Pro 9. Any advice from other photographers who know the program how I could improve in this area?
And don't forget to go over to Pixel Perfect's blog & check out what other people can do with their photos. It is so much fun!
