This week's theme is YELLOW. When I discovered Jill's blog, I realized I only had 24 hours to get a shot and link my post. But... lucky me, just a couple hours before, I took a photo of my youngest son in a yellow tank top and wearing his yellow baby beanie that he just started getting attached to very recently. LOL! Here's my SOOC shot. It's one of those take-it-now-coz-that's-all-you-will-get kind of shot. What can I do? He's three years old!
And below is my edited photo. I cropped it tighter, clone-stamped the junk in the background, and added more richness to the colors by:
Adding three layers - screen, soft light, and levels. Sorry, I forgot to record my opacity percentages.
And then... put a "sun-kissed" (copying Ashley's edits) by:
1. Adding a very light pink solid color layer at 100% opacity.
2. Adding a sepia photo filter at 56% Density at 100% opacity.
I wanted the picture to feel like how it was when I took the pic - bright noon day - very light, happy, and relaxed.
