I've done a couple of new shoots recently, but one was my first attempt at a self portrait shoot (which was kind of boring, but one became my new profile pick) and the other was a shoot for my super pregnant friend and colleague, Amber. Eventually I'll post one or two from that shoot, but I've only just begun to start selecting the best shots and start the touch up process (they're meant to be keepsakes, so the touchup process will be a little more meticulous and detail oriented).
So this was the original, unedited shot. Notice the credit card stickers and the like in the window on the right, and also take note of the car in the reflection in the window on the left. I wanted all that stuff gone to give it more of an old timey look. Most of the work was done with teh clone stamp tool, but I have a nice pen tablet, so really it felt more like painting.
This is the punched up version. Obviously the color is much more vibrant, the skin tone has been smoothed to give it that hint of pinup quality, and the window stuff has been eliminated. Take special note of the hanging lamp below Cammila's elbow in the window on the right. That part was a bit tricky.
Thanks for reading. I'll try to have entirely new stuff up next week at some point.
