This week’s photo is of the cutest little boy! He has a twin. Just as well the photo is just of one of them, those eyes are mesmerising! This is the original photo.
I first did a basic edit with some sharpening and a blur to soften noise and smooth his skin. I also cloned out the blue shirt and blond hair. I added a screen capture of the layers I used, including a photo filter to warm up his skin tone. The Hue/Saturation layer just made his red shirt and lips a bit warmer and brighter.
I then added a crop. The photo is great on its own, I think, but I do like the crop as well. His eyes are just such a big part of the image, I wanted less distraction.
Playing around with a black and white version, I came up with something I really like.
These are just some experiments with Pioneer Woman’s actions.
