Fix It Friday


I used Lightroom 3, Beta 2 for the edits.

The first thing I noticed is that the focus is on the doll instead of the sweet little girl's face, so I tried to sharpen the picture and then reduce the noise a little bit to smooth everything back out. This difference is really obvious if you click on the pictures to see the larger versions, but not so much in the small pictures shown on this page.

Next, I warmed up the white balance a bit and ran the "Punch" preset.

Lastly, I made the crop a tad tighter and rotated the picture a tiny bit.

I ♥ Faces Week 11 - Week 13 - “Dramatic B&W” Photo Challenge

I was taking shots of Sweet Pea when something startled her and as a photographer, I love how I captured her microexpression of fear. However, as her mom, this picture makes me feel very uneasy.

Visit I ♥ Faces to see other dramatic pictures this week.

I ♥ Faces Week 11 - "Focusing on Angles” Photo Challenge!"

I was trying to make my bed one morning when Sweet Pea insisted on climbing in and getting all "snug". She was so cute, I had to run and grab my camera. See other wonderful pictures at I ♥ Faces.

I ♥ Faces Week 11 - “Bundled Up” Photo Challenge"

Sweet Pea loves being outside and could play all day out there. I think she was just starting to get a little too cold here and contemplating coming back inside. See other bundled up pictures at I ♥ Faces.
