Week 45 - Picture Play

I signed up for Clickinmom class and wanted to show everyone what I did for my week 1 assignment.  Here goes...


Here's my first play:
SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera).


1) I first adjusted on ACR and adjusted my WB to what pleases my eyes.

2) Then played with blend modes with adjusting the opacity varying from 35%-60%.


 

3) Next, I merged the layers.

4) And created another for dodge and burn layer. I specifially do it in the eye, nose, lilps and hair areas.

5) Since I see "white" eyeballs looks a little blewish. I created another layer and used white brush adjusting the opacity. Another layer for the black brush for the iris since I see the blue matress reflection (which bothers me a lot). Then adjusted opacity again.

6) Merged layers. I cropped out some white sky since it destructs my eyes.

7) Used spot healing brush for some unwanted stuffs in the eyes and lips. Put a very light pink blush in her cheeks.

8) Lastly, I did use unsharp mask with the entire image and merged all layers. Here goes my result.



And the second:
SOOC



1) Edited in ACR for white balance adjustments.


 2) Applied changes on blend modes with dodge and burn


3) Tested black and white conversion. And found that her eye bags are a little bit dark so I did dodge and burn again with some gausian blur on it. I did separate layer for eyes and see if sharpening will have an effect on it


4) My final output.
