Before/After...

My first before/after since the move! :)


So, I made a newbie mistake.

I had a session I was doing, and just for fun, I tried using a green screen for the first time.

Lesson learned......do not let subject be physically on the green screen. You will have color cast you won't even believe. Kermit will be jealous.

(sooc)


Now, I didn't realize how bad the color bast was, until I fixed the exposure. (We'd gone from Mama holding her, to her laying on her belly (on the green screen, of course!), and I didn't have my lights low enough yet.
(exposure upped)


Ug.....
Now, I'm not one to like to use editing to fix a bad photo very often....I'd rather use editing to enhance a good one! But she was just making the cutest little face in this shot, so we spent some time together in CS5....

(Final Edit....click on photo to make bigger)


So, for my first time using a green screen, I don't think I did too bad :)(Even if, technically, the green screen wasn't even behind her yet....lol. I was just checking exposure at this point!) I even made the digital backdrop backdrop! :)

So, hop on over to Pixel Perfect, join in, and check out everyone's amazing edits this week!
