Wanted to share my newest "photo shoot" I did for a friend of mine's 1-year old. My biggest thing I'd like CC on is the brightness/blown areas of the white shirt. It was really hard for me to edit the picture to make it brighter but not overblow his white shirt. I'd like some opinions if it bothers you at all? I know in the pic of him and mommy his left arm and her left arm are blown because they were too close to the window in that one but it was a random in-the-moment capture. Any other CC on these would be appreciated as well.
Ok.. I haven't been working on my white balance for a long time now and for some reason can not find the link I had thought I saved on my computer on how to fix WB. Can anyone share a good link with me or share real quick how to fix WB in CS3 with a jpeg image??
I always open my file in ACR whether its RAW or not. I find the sliders and the white balance dropper a lot faster than levels or curves.
If you want to open your jpegs in acr:
go to Edit>Preferences>file handling in that menu there should be a box you can check to open jpegs in acr (i upgraded to CS4 so I cant check the exact name for you)
Then take the white balance dropper (found in the tools across the top) and click on the brightest and whitest part of the eye. You may need to adjust the sliders a bit from there, but usually this gives me good results.
I wanted to add a screen shot but my computer hates me right now...lol.
First off, I like your conversions! That little boy is too cute, and I love how you got the different outfits, b/c he looks so different! My fav ones are the ones with Mom, just wish her hair was pulled out of her face in the first one. I like the b&w one of him between her legs! Well done!
