I had been wanting to do a "rock star" photo shoot with my kids ever since they both got toy guitars, but in honesty I was a little nervous because I usually just do snaps or quick poses when we're out, as somehow I worry about failing if I really "try" to do it. Does that make sense?! But then Steph's choice of "Props" for the next challenge finally spurred me into action, and I did the shoot today. I had a bit of a challenge with the backdrop, and I've had to do some editing to try to smooth it out and stuff. Not sure how well it worked. I am totally LOVING the photos of my son and had to work hard to narrow it down to just two to edit for now... but DD is a different story. She wasn't as into it, and also editing her photos, something about the colouring is giving me trouble. But anyway, I'll share them and would love some comments and also suggestions on editing.
*** EDITED: I feel like crying right now. I thought I had done something really fun and special, but the more I edit them, the more I realize they are just not good. The black background can't be replaced well without making the hair look lousy (at 100% for sure, and even at 50%), and the yellow colour cast in our stupid house can't seem to be fixed. But I will suck it up and re-post my edits from today and hope to figure something out. ***
