I'm going to switch it up a little this week, and start with my edit. It's not a shot that's going to make the scrapbook, but I wanted to include it to show what can be done with a reeeeeally bad SOOC.
Here's my edit:
Do you suppose the Canon 5D Mark II can take bad pictures?
Yep, it sure can.
Check out my SOOC:
Horrible! When I got my new camera, I truly, truly thought I would never get a shot like this again. I would visit photographers' websites that used the 5D Mark II, and their pictures were phenomenal. I thought for such a pricey camera, my pictures would look just like theirs. At first, I was so disappointed! It doesn't matter what type of equipment you have; if you expose it wrong or white balance it wrong...it's going to look like this.
Sometimes I feel the pressure not to post shots like this. You all give me such amazing, positive, wonderful feedback, and I don't want to disappoint. Yes, I take bad shots. Come visit my recycle bin, and you'll feel wonderful! :-)
What I did:
Aly's Basic Boost
PW's wamer action
soft light 35%
Coffee Shop baby powder (Livia's cheek only)
MCP's burn tool (light vignette)
You can't take a horrible shot and make it perfect, but you can certainly make it better.
I tried a few hazy, vintage actions too. The two I liked best ended up looking very similar. Do you have a preference? They are from completely different action sets (both free), and I thought it was interesting how alike they looked. The right one is my favorite; a little more warm and peachy.
Make sure to link to your touch-up Tuesday post instead of your home page, and happy editing! ♥
