Bohemian Dreamer

I went shooting with a couple photographers from the Miami area and my girls stood in as the models. I shot with a 50mm lens – I’m used to having my 17-55 and zooming whenever I need so this was a challenge to frame properly. In most of the pictures a body part is chopped off. I’d really like to try a 28mm. I listened to a podcast recently and the photographer only shoots with a 28, and I like the way her pictures look. I *know* that the equipment does not a good picture make. . . but it would be fun to rent one.

The original was too cool. I lowered the highlights and clarity. I warmed the temp and moved the tint towards magenta. A little bit of sharpening and noise reduction and a small vignette. I used an adjustment brush on her face to lighten the highlights and brighten it a bit. I used another brush on the wood in increase the clarity and sharpness. I cropped out the sign that’s behind her hat. Here’s the original:
