I recently found a great photography website and I am learning so much from it! It is calledI Heart Faces. They have a weekly feature called Fix it Friday where they present a “challenging” photo, and encourage their participants to edit it using whatever photo program they use. The photo program I use is Photo Explosion Deluxe.
This is a beautiful family and I really wanted to show them off. I cropped the photo to bring the family to the front and to remove the awkward pose with the kid on the left. I also brightened the faces… a lot. Finally I removed the background color to make the main focus on the family. This is my first submission so I welcome all feedback. Thanks!
