Taken at a BBQ last July. I only have photoshop starter pack... so I would be grateful for any hints on how this image can be improved to remove the shadowing on her face.
A lovely portrail, Jules. Carol
I like the angle you have chosen, and there is a hint of a lovely natural smile.
I'm not sure what you mean by a photoshop starter pack, but if it's a version of Photoshop Elements you should find an 'Enhance' menu which has an 'adjust lighting' option which enables you to work on shadows and highlights.
Other than that selecting the figure and adjusting that separately is an option. How much you can do depends on how much detail the camera has captured in the shadows.
Thanks for the tips, I have Adobe Photoshop Starter Edition 3.2 so will scout around to see whether it has an enhance menu. I know I need to either upgrade my camera or upgrade the software so that the two work together and I achieve better results.
Very nice composition and lovely smile, just a little PS work to bring the detail out and its a winner! In fact try taking the shot again but with fill flash set on the camera..this will darken the bacjground and brighten the face
I wonder what mischief she had been thinking!
Lovely shot, for the angle, but agreee with wolfy on the flash..
Thanks chaps - maybe at the next BBQ, some work done on this photo with the help of CarolG.
