Today is Constructive Feedback Friday over at I Heart Faces! The first 50 readers have the chance to have the professionals over there help us fix up one of our own photos and get advice on how to make it look even better! Exciting!
The picture I need help with is one I took this ;past summer. It was taken with my Nikon D40. It was bright and sunny out. I edited it in PSE 7.0. As you can tell, I'm not a pro in PSE. Well, I not really a pro in anything, but I do realize there is potential for this photo, and I'll take all the help I can get!!! Here are the details for those wonderful people who might stop by today to help me with my photo: ISO 200, Exposure 1/4000 sec, f/1.6, focal length 50mm.
What's bothering me about my photo? For one, half of his head is way overexposed!! I tried and tried, but I couldn't figure out how to fix it. I think the photo evokes so much emotion, and I would like that to be expressed in the editing.
This is the SOOC shot:
And one final note, to my regular readers....one of the reasons I am participating in this event is so I can learn from those who know so much more than I do. If you should happen to read a comment that might appear critical, remember, that's how I hope to learn how to edit better. No one is leaving a comment to hurt my feelings. The purpose of this is to gain constructive knowledge from those who know way more than me! I am so hopeful I am one of the first 50!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
