I had a chance to play around with Photoshop tonight, which is rare. It’s raining, and everyone is in bed = peaceful! I have been wanting to do something with these photos from a session back in April. See, I don’t own very many backdrops as I prefer outside locations. But with newborns, very small children and untimely weather you need to have a few. I have the standard black and white with an off brown thrown in when I remember it. There are some that I would like to buy but I want too many and can’t narrow it down. So I decided to play. I created a plain pink background and added a slight texture to it. I then added it to the original photo, created a layer mask and painted back in my subject (still need to get better at that but I’ll take this for now). I definitely prefer the after (on the right) to the before (on the left) and I am very happy with it. Oh the options I can create now! Too few hours in the day to do everything.
Thanks for reading. Let me know which one you prefer.
