shoot and edit – love/romance (part 2)

I’ve been feeling a little “off” the last few days … I’m very behind on blogging and visiting. I’m feeling a little better today so I wanted to share my edits of the Valentine’s tails that my sons gave each other.

The changes are subtle on both photos … because I just wasn’t feeling very creative the last few days. My main goal (aside from the usual white balance, exposure, brightness, etc. tweaks) was to sharpen the words on the valentine stickers without affecting the rest of the photo. I used the very handy Adjustment Brush tool to do this and customized the settings until I was happy with the outcome.

For the second photo, I also did a slight crop and removed some of the crumbs on the chair using the Spot Removal tool. There are two ways to remove blemishes in LR3, Clone or Heal. Either way it’s super easy to do but I tend to Clone things out. Unlike PSE, you select the area you want to retouch first and the program automatically selects an “clean” area nearby for you. Sometimes, the program gets it right. If not, you can make adjustments to the spot circles. You can move them around, change the size and opacity at any time. I love this tool!

Looking forward to seeing your edits but it might take me a few days to catch up. Happy Saturday, all : )
