iHeartFaces – No Flash

23 Mar

This photo is (so far) the reason I’m so so glad I stumbled onto iHeartFaces and all the links to generous and talented people helping me (anon and for free) get to grips with my baby Nikon. There’s not a snowball’s chance in hell I would have captured something like this a couple of month’s ago, more or less on purpose.

He was just sorta lounging around on my bed looking all sad because I wouldn’t let him on the Playstation3 til his big brother got home from school (my wonderful Keeb amuses and supervises him at the same time).

I didn’t do a lot with it editing wise, cropped it, applied the Lightroom filter “Aged Photo” and tidied up a few pixels in his irises in Photoshop. I didn’t have to touch that exposure slider – woo hoo!

    Great picture! I just joined in last week – mostly in hopes of learning how to take better pictures too. I just got Photoshop Elements and am hoping that a few subtle adjustments can make a big difference in my pictures. I just have to figure out how to use it first!

    I love your photo. You could climb right into those eyes. I’d love to see your shot prior to “touch ups.” I bet it was beautiful to begin with. It’s amazing what children’s faces have to offer…beautiful skin…amazing eye lashes…sincere thoughts and no fear of a closeup! Thank you for your comment too! I think I am going to go check out the rest of your blog. Have a great day!

    Nice and thoughtful, even if he was unhappy about the PS 🙂
