I had this photo from a little while back that I wanted to edit. I wasn't really sure what to do with it, so here's what I experimented with. You guys have suggestions/comments?

Looks good. Maybe a bit of vignetting that is not noticeable in the original, especially in the upper right. Nice deep colors, though.

Yeah, too much noise. Grain in old photos is much less obvious. Try reducing the noise and maybe add a sepia tint.

The pic itself is very nice, though.

better... but she's still pretty under-exposed, imo.

and OOF.


seeing this thread makes me realize just how little i process. i watched Mark's screencast...and in the time it took him to do that image (even subtracting some 'talking' time), i could have processed 40 shots. i've used photoshop like 5 times in the past 6 months. but i want to start improving my skills in it.

I think it's fun to be able to make something completely different or really save a bad pic, but for the last year or so i've tried to process images very soon after i've captured. This is so that i can have the memory of the scene clear in my mind and try to match the image to it.

I've been trying to get it right in the camera first much more than before. Finding it pretty rewarding as well. These threads are still really fun and can help lots of people learn PS skills.

I need to start doing that. I've been more careful lately about background and exposure and so on, trying to get it right in camera. I tend to over process images, I think. I look at them later and think, "WTF did I do that?"

an older image. probably among the more drastic changes i make in LR3, aside from BW and color profile conversions.


Jamie-Before by jsophoto, on Flickr


Jamie-After by jsophoto, on Flickr

wanted a lot of pop for this image. gives it a fun feel. so there's lots of clarity and contrast. a touch of fill, blacks boosted slightly, no saturation adjustment. a little bit of sharpening.
i'm about to have a go at it with CS5.
