Straight off of camera [SOOC]
Edited to remove brother, touched up and brightened.
Already a cute shot SOOC
But looks even better when it's been touched up!
Just a little bit of work, and even some of the worst photos can look pretty decent. I still have tons to learn, but I have plenty of willing victims to help me figure it out. Now if I could just get someone to sit down and help me understand Photoshop Elements...
Be on the look out this year! I have two more family shoots in the upcoming month, a couple birthday parties, and even a labor & deliver to look forward to at the end of the year :). I'm also hoping to become an assistant for a more established photographer so I can learn better tricks of the trade, although I am still firm in my decision to never become a photographer as a career. I enjoy having this hobby, but I think that's all it will ever be.
