I ♥ Faces Fix-it Friday
It just keeps rollin' around every week!
You might have noticed that I love making photos of children black and white. And this week is no exception.
Now the problem with this photo is it's a little too dark, but lightening it brings up all the noise in the underexposed areas. Which makes it PERFECT for black & white, because it never shows up as badly then. Good thing I wanted to do b & w anyway.
I lightened just a little. Then I ran TRA's Bitchin' B & W, then ran Oh Snap! over that. I added Antique tone at around 30%. Then I used pro retouch to soften his face and brighten his eyes. Et voila!
Oh I also cropped the tiniest bit, but you can see that.
No go to I ♥ Faces and see what everyone else did.
