Baby Benjamin comes to stay with me during the day and I couldn’t help but capture his precious face.
well.. and then edit … cause it is just too much fun!
I am slowly learning how to capture these pictures on purpose. But until I can do it with ease, I will love on my photographs with editing.
My SOOC shot; boring and lifeless. Not what I saw that day at all! What I saw that day was color and vibrance and that didn’t come across in this picture one little bit!
Adding a little bit here and a little bit there and this is exactly what saw that day.
Sharpen, Boost (fade). Biggest thing here was tinting to get the green out of the original photograph.
Crop, Sharpen, Boost (fade) and touch-up
Messed around with the tinting because of the green going on in the picture again. Sharpen, boost, touch-up and added shadows.

I was explaining to a friend, the itch I have to edit my photographs like this… It is like HDTV.. We always thought our regular digital cable was looking good.. THEN… we got HDTV and realized how great it can look especially when compared to the original. It is just a little more of something that is missing.
