  • Hmmm, overexposure is being mentioned but there doesn't appear to be clipping and I see detail in the highlights.   So it may be exposed brighter than your creative vision.   Many people expose ...
  • I think the second bride shot looks quite lovely. The problem with both versions of the group shot is how washed out the background looks. In snapseed I used control points to isolate the green ...
  • As Sabrina said,  I would just mind your backgrounds when you're taking the shot.   "Head in a clean spot" is a good mantra- (thanks Zack Arias).   A bit more light on her face would have been ...
  • In Lightroom, I would not try to do it with global adjusments.  For the freckles, I would use an adjustment brush on the face(particularly the freckles) to add contrast, perhaps playing with the ...
  • It looks like maybe there were some artifacts from a previous edit or something ?   I tried not to alter the prevailing light too much, in an effort to keep it natural looking.  Added some noise ...
  • While it would not occur to me to crop the chin, the effect being pulled to the eyes is undeniable.  Beautiful edit.  Love the contrast
  • Thanks for the play. She's a lovely lady.
  • Replied in For play ...
    And one more with a new frame
  • Replied in For play ...
    Lovely couple. Thanks for the play.
  • Just playing in Snapseed, Tiffen photo fx,and afterlight on the iPad. Selectively isolated reds and brightened and added contrast.  Also added a color effect pushing the sky more cyan to contrast ...
  • What I would check is the pen properties setting in the Wacom window (his step 1 in the video). In the pen properties where it shows tip feel, try varying that setting between soft and firm. You ...
  • I love this portrait-  his expression, pose, and the way the light highlights that cherubic little face. Very memorable!
  • This is a nice image. It looks like you made one or possibly two snafus with the clone tool. On her neck right below her chin you can see a circular skin texture that doesn't belong there. Also, ...
  • If you are happy with part of that mistake layer, you can add a mask to that layer and use a black brush to paint away the mistake- on the mask, NOT the layer. You can make a selection of the area ...
  • A couple of plays, one with a dusty overlay for fun.  I actually really like the subtle tones of the original. So here's one more from Snapseed before I used photo fx to oomph the color and fog.
  • Really lovely directional lighting in these shots.  Looks like some blown highlights on the Dad's face though. Just a play...mostly with the coloring. Snapseed and Photo fx ultra
  • I would think just upgrading your flash to an SB700 which rotates and tilts should fit the bill. It's more powerful and comes with diffusers included. You then can aim the flash up and to the side ...
  • Reduced a few blemishes. Reduced redness on nose and neck, enhanced contrast. I think studying up on retouching is the way to go, and too much for the forum to teach at once. I think this may be ...
  • Hmm I reacted more positively to your image than Dan did.  It looks to me that you did a good job with the lighting and I do see shadows on either side of the nose.  The photographer in the ...
  • I like this group shot, some fun expressions.  I don't mind the background shadows Since you already got what you were looking for, hope you don't mind that I had a play. Snapseed tonal adjustments ...
