One of my favourites from a recent shoot.
Only thing I'm not keen on is the darkness around the eye. Is this something I can fix in photoshop or is it down to lighting?
What a lovely portrait.
very good portrait and pose
How did you do your border- Photoshop
NIce tidy image btw
Thanks for the comments guys.
Yes Paul the border was in photoshop.
How about making a selection aroun, and under, the eyes, feather by 25, adjustment layer- levels and bring the right slider in. Just an idea. or make selection as above then adjustment layer - curves and push the line up a little.
Relaxed image - the crop at top and btom seems a little sever
A lovely model and portrait.
Another way you could try to brighten up the dark area is to press Ctrl "j" to make a copy on a new layer then change the blend mode of this new layer to Sreen.
Now hold the Alt key and click on the layer mask icon to mask the layer.
Select the brush tool make sure the colour is white and pain over the dark areas with the white brush, if you paint over an area by accident press ctrl "z" to undo or chage the brush colour to blackand paint over the area again.
Once you have painted over the dark areas it might look too bright just adjust the opacity untill you get the results your looking for.
The great thing about using a layer mask like this is that it's non destructive the changes aren't permanent until you merge them down onto the layer below.
Hope this helps
a pleasant portrait with good eye contact, reshoot your model again after she has had a good night's sleep.
