This has been an extremely long week at work. On top of that, I have not been feeling well for most of it. I am relieved that our production period is finally coming to an end. I am looking forward to catching up on what has gone on in the blogosphere.
These images were taken at our photo shoot at Mixed Elements Salon Spa & Boutique last Sunday. We were so excited with what we had captured that as soon as we got home, Marcus and I did a few quick edits. This morning, I revisited those images and did what I call full edits. The images on the right are the ones that were re-edited. The biggest change was to add just a hint of warmth to the images by using new fill layer tool and selecting brown as the background. Then I changed the opacity to 40%. Once that was done, I created another background layer and used an adjustment brush at 15% opacity and I brushed over sections of the skin which turned a shade to brown for my liking. After that, using the lasso tool, I drew around the jewelry and nails, then used the vibrance slider to add a pop more color to the jewelry. Lastly, I used the unsharp mask tool in PS with the radius set at one, threshold at four and the amount was set at 88%.
Besides catching up on sleep, editing images will be how a large part of my weekend will be spent. We plan on wrapping up our edits from Aaron and Melissa’s wedding which was our last wedding of 2014. I am looking forward to sharing the images from their beautiful wedding day.
