Looking at the facebook page of Edifice Studios and it makes me want to do better even though I might not even be able to achieve the same spectacular quality. But I figured I can still go up a tiny level.
I always do color correcting on my photos, but I feel like I need to have more practice at it. My toning is a bit half-baked, methinks.
So here’s the before and after. (Thank goodness for that nifty Lightroom feature.)
The before looks funny doesn’t it? Haha I think it was the light green paint of the room that did me in. Or something.
I feel like I wanted to blur out the louder prints in the shot so I blurred most of it out and left my “relaxed” face. I don’t know if it’s a good idea though. I would have blurred less, but the Lens Blur in my Photoshop CS5 version was wacky. Update: I was able to control the blur a little so a new pic is up there now.
I also don’t know if I crunched the blacks too much.
Pretty satisfied with the way the lighter colors turned out though. I really think I’m more inclined to colors with reddish to peach hues. Mm.
I think I chose this photo because I seem to be missing my inner peace. Can’t seem to totally feel it unless I stay up late at night. I get rattled easily. I feel overwhelmed about how the future is just this big question mark. Is there any way I can peek into the future so I can at be a little less worried? :(
