Howdy all,

Can I get some comments on this pic? Was going for a bit of a bedroom/lounging around type shot. Room was a bit tiny or I would have got the bed in the shot to set the scene. Lighting was a softbox to camera right and a slowish shutter to bring out the background.

Seems a little red to me. How do you go about fixing that? My major gripe with it is the railing outside. I'm not much chop in PS or i'd get rid of it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

cheers,

Adam

Does this look more to your liking? Fixed the red in curves, cloned out the railing, lightened the skin under her eyes and put more contrast into the overall picture.

You definitely got it in the second one. Pretty darn good. I've never tried to control color in curves, only exposure and contrast. How do you specify the changes to affect just one color? Appreciate and answer. I would like a copy of the answer to my email. I don't always catch these. mrpilles@comcast.net

jim fixed it about as fixed as its gonna get. but the thing that would've really made this shot better isn't gonna be found in photoshop. the image, as shot, is flat. there's no rim or edge to pop her out of the background. there are few shadows and highlights. that's the stuff, IMO, that would've made the big difference in this image.

Jim,

That is gold! Thanks for putting in your time on that, muchly appreciated! Going to go home and have a lash at doing that on the original. Got it printed the other day and it looks ok but that is heaps better. Pretty happy the local lab is having a $2 (AUD) run on 8x12 at the moment! One thing, how do you lighten under the eyes? Do you select an area and lighten it or let it select matching tones or something tricky like that?

Also going to take jimmy's suggesting and try and get some back/rim lighting going.

thanks again,

adam

Jimmy,

Thanks for your comments mate. Never even thought of that when I set it up but it is a top idea. Don't think I could fit a light behind/beside her but could prob get someone to hold a reflector.

On a seperate note - just finished looking at your stripper thread. Very very cool! Have now put "strip club set" on my list of things to work on. Wonder if they sell stripper-friendly poles at Bunnings???

Cheers,

Adam

Jimmy D does some really good work and his idea of adding a back or rim light can help add more interest to the picture. I lighten under the eyes by using the clone tool from a close area and set it anywhere from 10% to 20% with the feathered edge. Great price on the 8x12 prints. They are higher than that here.
Good luck.
Jim
