I really like #1 alot but I wish her hair wasn't covering her eye. Its still a really nice photo.
#1 - Nice comfortable pose. The hair covering her eyes would have been better brushed away.
#2 - An excellent shot of the girl. Even though it's bokehed, I just wish the car wasn't in the background. It's just too discernable.
#3 - Again, another very nice capture of the girls expression. The circles of light in the background are distracting to me. Don't mean to sound distasteful, but I would lighten her pits a bit.
#4 - Unnatural crop of Grandma's head and arms.
#5 - Send this to your candidate of choice that wants a patriotic couple with a caption reading "I support....(whoever)"
#6 - Beautiful eyes.
thanks thats my grandparents, and the baby is my cousins baby (i guess that means second cusin? lol) :blushing:
I was serious about sending that to a candidate of choise. Think about it. Perhaps cloning out the house number.
I think you should work with the girl in 2 & 3 as much as possible. She's a natural.
I'm not always a hardass.
Oh I love these! Only CC for me - brighten them up a bit and add a little contrast. I sharpened the eyes on the couple and I think it really brings them out now. And that baby is adorable! GREAT JOB!
woah i love the sharpened eyes! do u just use the sharpen tool in photoshop?
Is there any chance you have a tutorial on how you sharpened those eyes? I have a couple...a few...okay, the whole friggin' lot on trying to brighten the eyes. Any help is much appreciated.
hey I found a tutorial on youtube on how to whiten teeth that totally rocks my world, I would LOVE the eye thing. Pretty please? sugar on top? um maybe there already is one. I should look. No, no I said I was going to bed. Someone else look?
Here is what I do - don't know if it's right or not but it usually works out ok.
I don't have photoshop. I use a cheapy editing program that came with my camera. SO things are somewhat the same but I dont know how your tools work if you have PS.
What I did with joey's photo's, both of them.
I brightened the midtones a bit to bump up the exposure.
then I added a tiny bit of contrast.
then I used the unsharp mask, for me there were no particular 'settings' of the unsharp mask for these, just til I thought it looked right.
Then I made the whites of the eyes a tiny but brighter ( I have a lighten tool I don't know what you guys have.)
Then I used my sharpen tool, zoomed in very close and sharpened only the eyeball with the tool.
I think that is it. Sometimes to give it a softness I add smart blur but that can make it look plastic so it doesn't always work.
Hope that helps and have fun trying!
Oh yeah and in tkme4ard's post called 'posting these again' I explained how I did the ees with layering on that. I only did the layering though because there was an example shown of eyes that are VERY sharp. THe kind that needs layering. However I did have to paint the eye whites there rather than simply lightenening them because there was redness and the painting looks crappy so ignore my paint! I am not a painter. LOL
