Crazy Portrait

My youngest has a silly personality that will come out once she’s spent time with you and is comfortable. Fortunately, my camera is well-known and she’s pretty comfortable acting herself.

Plus, how cool is this wall. It was just begging to be posed in front of. I believe it’s in Winchester, VA.

Crazy Portrait – ProjectEdit365 – 22 Oct

I intended to shoot this picture at an interesting angle, but then when I looked at it in the computer, it was just too much. So, I cropped to make the bricks straight, but that ended up cutting off her toes. WAAHHH! I increased the clarity and contrast and lightened the shadows. Also, the picture was super orange so I cooled it down a bit. I also decreased the saturation of the orange color with the orange slider.I used several adjustment brushes: to sharpen her eyes, to lighten the coat and leggings; to decrease the contrast of her face and clothes (since they were too contrasty from increasing the contrast of the whole photo) and on the whitish bricks to tone down the yellowness. I then used a radial filter to darken her surroundings but keep her lighter. Here’s the original:
