Here is a picture I took of Layla today. You can see her face is really dark, and the exposure and temp are way off.
First I edited the picture in CameraRaw. I fixed the exposure, added some warmth, added some fill light, and voila! A nice clean picture.
Then it was time for some creative editing. I think the end result turned out pretty well!
For my second Before and After we will take a look at my good buddy Heidi.
I took this picture in the middle of the afternoon on a very sunny and hot day. At first I thought I was stuck with blown out skin and dark eyes.
Thanks to a little Yin/Yang, some skin polisher and an eye popper (there could be a little gaussian blur in there too...) we have this adorable picture of Miss H! Look at those beautiful blues! I am very proud of that photo :)
