Ok, I gave myself a strict 15 minute time limit to edit todays image from I Heart Faces. I used a Lemon and Honey action, and then the CoffeeShop (free) Perfect Portrait action. I selected the background and adjusted the hue to bring out a little more red. Such a beautiful image...how could you go wrong?
Here is my Fix It Friday edit for I Heart Faces:
I am so proud of this one! I decided to go for it this week without using any of my regular action shortcuts. Sooooo, it was a great learning process.....but I spent the whole night fooling around with different ideas, opacities, etc, etc. Ooops. So, I know that when I am in a hurry, the actions are SUPER helpful. But it is pretty exciting to see such a big difference that I could make on my own. That builds my confidence to know that I can cover myself if it comes down to it, in a pinch. Plus, I made myself a before and after template which makes it much easier for me to see a difference (and maybe stop editing before it is too much?) Ok, so now I am on to some actual work :(

So, I am going to put some of my images into a "show!" It is for a lobby of a theater production (small scale) but I am so geeked out! I actually had to create some things to put in, because I couldn't very well use portraits of people's children, which is most of my portfolio thus far. Here are some of the new images:
I went with a "Textured" theme. I have been inspired and playing with textures from Kim Klassen. http://www.kimklassencafe.com/ She has some beautiful work, and free/affordable textures on her site. I found her through Amanda Padgett's Everyday Elements, http://everydayelementsonline.com/ (which looks very promising, if I ever get time to explore further!) Anyway, it is the first time I have really gotten into the idea. I don't tend to like the portraits with textures, but somehow the photos of objects really clicked with me.
