The first one is a photo I showed you yesterday. I edited it after the 2nd lesson when I was learning how to adjust exposure, brightness, and color cast. My favorite part is how her skin warmed up and her hair color was more golden, which is more true to life.
And this is a picture of Charlotte when she was just 3 weeks old. I was camera happy back then but had no idea I would ever be taking a photo editing class! I edited this one during the black and white lesson. The increased contrast and the way the colors aren't an issue (since she was laying on a jungle themed pillow) make this one an improvement in black and white, in my opinion.
I've played with some other pictures, but they didn't turn out so well. Some pictures just don't convert well to black and white. Want to see an example? I knew you would. No one can resist a train wreck!
I'll share some more images when I finish the class. I have lessons on cropping, and sharpening left.
Oh, and you can sign up for a free course to learn about frame ups and special effects at JessicaSprague.com when you visit her website and use Gift Code FREECLASS062009. I'm signed up for that one too!
This post not sponsored by anyone. I just liked the class and wanted to show off my photos.
