The Power of Photo Editing

12 Jul

Believe it or not, this is the same picture. Rylie’s bathroom has no natural light what-so-ever and I refuse to use a flash (ok I don’t refuse, but I prefer not to). So, this first picture is what came out of my camera. 

Not very pretty right? But, with a little bit of Photoshop magic I turned it into a useable, eye catching photo.

I actually love the end result. I really couldn’t recover the color of the original photo so I used a good ol’ black and white PS action and it turned out better than I thought!

So don’t worry if you have a cute, but poorly lighted photo. A little bit of editing can turn it into something special. You just have to play around with it.

    Wow, that turned out to be a GREAT pic!!! I’ve been trying really hard to wean myself off of the flash and edit more. 🙂
