Back at the fair

Candy colored everything – it’s what the fair is all about.

Back at the fair – ProjectEdit365 – 29 Sep

The original was a little dark, and after adjusting several aspects I decided that a preset would finish it off beautifully. I try not to use presets all the time, because I want to make sure I can do adjustments myself. But sometimes they’re the best. I had decreased the clarity and increased the vibrance and exposure just a little. I had also added a small vignette. I used adjustment filters on their eyes to sharpen them. I then ran the preset. Here’s the original:

Fair Food & Fun

There’s a lot going on in the picture (including plenty of food booths) except for one thing. Where are all the people?!

I’m actually happy about that. Fairs are usually full of people, and sometimes that’s not a fun thing. . .

Fair Fun & Food – ProjectEdit365 – 02 Sep

I straightened the original, lowered the contrast, increased the clarity and vibrance. I shifted the tint towards magenta and then adjusted some of the individual colors to get the look I wanted. The original:

Fall = County Fairs – ProjectEdit365 – 01 Sep

I really liked the original, but I wanted it to have a more vintage, stylized look. I sharpened the photo, ran a preset, and then adjusted the red color to give it more saturation. Here’s the original:
