I have been reading tons of photography blogs lately!! Seems like I just can't get enough. It could be because I have been taking an online blogging course called Blogging Your Way. It's been so great!! Part of the class is to figure out what your true passions are and to really focus instead of being all over the place. There was a common element for me in all of the exercises we had to do. Photography!! I'm really not surprised. It's been a part of me ever since I was a kid.
So, you may be seeing more photography posts on Total City Girl! I'm pretty excited about it. Feels good to be more focused!
In my travels around all of these other photography sites, I came across a great one called I Heart Faces. Each Friday they have something called Fix It Friday where one of the contributors submits a SOOC (straight out of camera) photo and the readers can download the photo and edit it to their liking.
Here's my first try at it. This was the original photo..
and here are my edits...
For some reason I couldn't open the RAW image, had to go with the JPG - will try next time if available.
Edit 1 - I used Photoshop CS4, cropped, adjusted levels and ran PW Action - Bring On The Eyes, then sharpened slightly
Edit 2 - Photoshop CS4, cropped and ran PW Action - Soft & Faded
Looking forward to next week's photo!
