Hello! Welcome back!
Time for another installment of Shoot and Edit. This week's theme is PINK.
If you read my post on Monday, you will know that pink is surprisingly hard to come by in our house. Even with a 12 year old daughter, she doesn't like pink all that much anymore. And I've not been a fan since my high school years. So after much searching, this is what I found ...
My SOOC shot.
I played around and came up with 3 different edits this week. I'm actually pretty happy with how they turned out.
My first edit was just basic stuff. Adjusting the white balance, exposure, etc. in Adobe Camera RAW; then I used a high-pass filter with a layer mask because I only wanted to sharpen the iPod, not the entire photo. Then a slight crop and voila!
After making the basic adjustments, I played around some. This one has Coffee Shop's Velvet Truffle action run on it.
Again, just playing. I converted the Edit 1 photo to black and white, then used a layer mask to put the color back on the iPod only. I'm sure there's a technical term for doing that, but I don't know what it is. :)
So that's it from me! After really struggling to find something pink to photograph, I am pleasantly surprised with my results.
Head on over to Ashley's to check out more pink edits.
Next week's theme is self-portraits or couples. I think I might be in trouble. :)
