Well, it is Thursday, and you know what that means. Wait, you don't? Thursday is the day I post my edited version of the SOOC photo I posted on Monday for the weekly Shoot & Edit Challenge. Whew! That was a long run on sentence!
This week's theme is red. And here was my SOOC shot.
A gold-dipped rose from my sweet husband.
I played around today and actually came up with 4 different edits.
Edit 1 ...
I just did basic editing here in Adobe Camera Raw. Then adjusted the brightness/contrast a bit more and cropped. Nothing fancy.
Edit 2 ...
All the prior edits plus I used Paint the Moon's Vanilla Pop action.
Edit 3 ...
Edit 2 plus I added SKC Photography's Antique Black and White Texture. I find it interesting that this is how it turned out. Not what I expected. But I like it.
Edit 4 ...
Last edit ... same edits as edit #1, then ran Pioneer Woman's Slight Light action and added SKC Photography's Painted Pastel Texture. I removed the texture from the rose pedals. (I'm not sure what technique that is called). :)
Here are all 4 edits for comparison.
I have really been enjoying learning a little more each week. Thanks to Ashley for spoon feeding me some editing techniques that I can actually understand! :) Can't wait to come see what you've done! Happy Thursday Everyone!
