Today, the girls over at I Heart Faces have changed up the routine a little, but we still have a Fix It Friday! Find it in the community section if you are interested.
So, this is the original SOOC image. I think it is really cute, but a little too underexposed. I played around with actions mostly today. I used MCP's little free action that was just put out- Mini Fusion. I would looove to get the full version of that one. It is really versatile. So, back to editing, I added two of Kim Klassen's textures, which I am just enjoying every day! I should join her affiliate program, cause I promote her everywhere I go! LOL Anyway, I put one in overlay, and the other is on soft light blend mode. On the first texture, I used a gaussian blur on the skin, so it would keep the same color, but lose the texture. The other was turning her brown, so I just erased it off of the skin altogether. I also saturated the colors on the background a bit. And ran a Pioneer Woman "Sharpen This" to get just the face a little more in focus. Voila!
Hmmmm...it is actually a little lighter on my blog, so I might bring back a little more on the mid-tones if I were going to use this photo. Check out some other takes on the same image at I Heart Faces.
