For my photo, I just had to post this picture of my neighbors daughter. I took the photo in October but I wanted to post it now because of the sunlight shining through from behind. My only regret is that I use a crappy photo editor and I can't dodge her face a bit to lighten it up and draw more focus. The good new is that I continue my fight to join 2011 and ordered a new computer Friday. Thank God! Photoshop, here I come!
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 (Just an awesome lens)
As for post production, I did up the contrast, lower the highlights, upped saturation 1 tick, and sharpened.
Looking at this photo just makes me yearn even more for summer. Looking outside right now, you might think it's close. But I know we're do for a sucker punch by old man winter sometime soon. Until summer arrives, I guess I'll lean on these photos of warmer days to get me by. After all isn't that part of why we take photos?
A quick final note to you fellow photogs out there. Do any of you use Adobe Lightroom as a primary photo editor? I saw a fantastic sale the other day and I nearly bought it. But that was before I ordered the new computer and my current computer would have melted just looking at Lightroom. I would love to hear from anyone with experience with Lightroom. Thanks in advance!
