I haven't had a chance to work on a Fix It Friday photo for a few weeks. I had some time today after a busy week and thought I'd take a quick crack at this week's photo. Such an adorable boy!
I didn't do a good job of writing down specific steps on what I did to process these photos, but here's what I remember:
I opened the photo in Lightroom and did the following - Bump in exposure, decrease clarity, make duplicate of photo and apply Sesame Ellis preset "colorless kick" to B&W, Exported both copies to Photoshop. Individual actions for each photo are listed below.
Photoshop Color - increased blacks in levels layer, Pro Retouch & Eye Bump (Totally Rad), desaturated the red to get rid of some of the pink cast in the lips, ran Dfine 2.0 to decrease noise (I think I love this plug in. Still working with the demo version, but it is great.)
Photoshop B&W - Eye Bump, Bitchin B&W (70%), Cinnamon Toast (20%), Dfine 2.0 to decrease noise.
