I Heart Faces...Scenic Black and White

"Click Photo For Larger View"

This week the I Heart Faces photo challenge is for scenic black and white photos. I've been working with my film camera a lot lately and took this lil model to a topiary garden. It has a beautiful pond filled with lily pads, fish and frogs. I decided to submit this image. I love the old 1940's feel it inspires.

Fix it Friday Week #74

This week's I Heart Faces Fix it Friday Photo is so adorable, I couldn't resist giving it a go at editing. I softened the pumpkin's the bring the attention to the adorable little subject. I adjusted the color curves by giving each RBG curve a slight s curve.

Gimp - Liz B Fix it Friday Entry

Original Image

My Photojournalism Edit

This is my entry for the Fix it Friday Challenge. I used Gimp. It's a free photo editing software available for download on the web. Sometimes if I have to much running, Photoshop slows down my computer, so I use Gimp instead.

I chose to clone out the lights in back of the father's head so the emphasis would be on the emotion between him and his daughter. I used three curve layers. I gave the red channel a slight s curve. The green channel a curve slightly higher than the red one. Then the blue channel a slight s curve. I added in a layer of 969696 gray to bring out the skin tones and highlight them.

I'm not very good at tutorial writing ( forgive me). I wanted to give the photo a more photojournalism tone with the editing I choose.

My Pretty Lil Tomboy...

Bri loves her costume from her dance recital. She use to wear it "everywhere" she could get away with. We found this gold Spalding Ball at a flea market. I loved the contrast of the tutu with the basketball. Soooo, I'm entering it in the I Heart Faces Week 30 Purple Photo Challenge.

Summer Fun

I know it's been ages since I've posted new content. I decided to change direction with my photography. I love taking portraits but my heart soars when I do editorial and photojournalism work. I'm starting a new journey, and I'm so excited to be following my heart.

This photo I took of Ben at the park pretty much sums it all up. My feet are off the ground, my head is in the clouds, and I'm soaring like an eagle.....

I decided to enter this photo in I Heart Faces' photo challenge of the week. "Over my head".
