This session with Emerson didn’t go as easy as previous times. In fact, it actually took three attempts before the payoff. We used all the noisemakers, snack breaks, sibling cheerleaders – the works. Whatever it takes!
I thought it would be cool to show the transition of the image.
-The first shot is pretty much straight out of the camera with just a little sharpening applied.
-The next, color is saturated overall, background is blurred a bit, loose flower petals are removed, and corners are darkened to draw attention to our bathing baby.
-Finally, color is altered to give the image a vintage feel, and an old fashioned mat is applied for a real retro feel.
