Fix it Friday 06/17/2011


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!

Below you will see the “before” photo on top and the “after” photo below it.

  1. Only because you asked, so don’t hate…

    They look great, I would have cropped less, giving the kids more elbow room (not to mention the one kid’s other leg and butt), and left the color in the background (I’m not big on changing colors), but it does look nice without.

    Over all, looks very nice. 😉

  2. Thank you!! So many people have been taught that if they don’t have something nice to say don’t say it at all, but I can only learn by comments such as yours, and that is what I am trying to do!!!! Thank you…. I cut it so close mostly because his pose seemed incredibly awkward. But I agree, I took away the “natural” look.
