I am so excited to share these with you because I feel like they came out great and I'm really happy with them! Not much editing involved which was nice! I did, however, use the clone tool on some of these to remove distractions from the picture. It was my first time using the clone tool and I absolutely love it!
So I dressed Alivia in a dress she hadn't worn yet and brought her outside in the backyard to play on a blanket for a little photo shoot. It was cloudy out, around 3:30 PM, and I thought what great lighting! The sun wasn't beating down on our heads either so it was comfortable out. She was such a good girl only I couldn't get her to stand up to show case her entire dress. That's okay. There is always next time!
Anyhoo, I used a web sharpening action I bought from Paint the Moon so I hope you can see the difference in my images.
The first few were taken in the house using a flash (blah) and don't even compete with the ones I took outside using natural light (yay)! I just had to share anyway. The first one is a silly angle. It makes me smile.
Now for the good ones!
