I love to shop! Photoshop, that is. So, I thought I’d share some examples with you because it is amazing what can be done with Photoshop. Mind you, I am by no means an expert, but I have played with it for years now and I keep learning, albeit very slowly.
Above, an image of a boy in Poughkeepsie, NY, circa 1978. I got lucky with this shot.
As you can see from the original image, right, Photoshop helped a great deal in creating the arresting image it became.
An edited image of a geranium, above, and the original, at right. The edited version of an image isn’t necessarily better than the original, but it’s always interesting to see where a little fussing with the settings may lead.
At left, a gorgeous little girl I spotted at a friend’s wedding. Unfortunately, there was a mess of distracting arms and legs surrounding her precious face, as you can see, below.
Once again, Photoshop came to the rescue.
Above, another shot from the wedding celebration, this time of a charming boy named Finn.
The original photo was okay although a little flat. I could have just popped the contrast and be done with it, but I decided I really wanted to isolate the image of Finn, which is what I did in Photoshop.
