What a magical stunning image! Such a good B/W portrait of a very beautul child, well done! Regards Kathryn
Fantastic image - Keep going, you're on the right track
I'm still trying to get to grips with correct settings etc. I almost gave, thought I would take a break but with the recent encouragement I've received, I'm going to keep trying.
great idea ...very photogenic child....hair in mouth could be removed?
looking for the 2nd time, I wonder whether the skin needs a little softening...I know some portrait togs use specialised software for this
Its a cute shot John. If you turn on Modifications I can upload a mod Ive done to remove the hair, etc. Options>Edit>Options click the modifications box I believe.
Willie I have done it. What did u use to remove the hair
I uploaded a mod with the main suggestions from cats_123.
I used the Spot Healing Brush tool in Photoshop CS. I dont know if Elements has it, - would be surprised if it didnt, at least the latest version. It works by using a small size "brush" which you simply move along the hair, and it disappears!
Ive also brightened it a touch, and as suggested, added a little skin softening. Thats a very sharp lens and it showed every tiny detail on the face, - try using it wide open?
Thanks Willie. Yes it is a very sharp lens. I just installed Elements onto my laptop so just getting use to it. Great tips thanks again. Your mod just finished the photo of. Thinking about getting it printed.
If you want to send me the large original file, I can do the mod and send it back ready for printing. Im at firstname.lastname@example.org, - just let me know what print size you want to get done.
