I’m working on my mad photo-editing skillz. I found this great action at CoffeeShop Photography for fixing up eyes. Even better because it’s free, and saves me the $$ I was considering spending at a different site for essentially the same thing. Check it out:
I forget everything I did here. Definitely a color correction, followed by a basic boost action, the Coffee shop filter, reduce noise, and probably a warming and Vignette. I did this one yesterday though, so I forget.
Then there’s this one, taken today:
SOOC (Straight out of Camera)
And again, after I messed with it:
Let’s see – Color correction, Basic Boost (which includes a defog), CoffeeShop’s Powder room (just for the eyes though, I don’t like the way the skil looks “softened), a warming action, a lomo, and finally I ran it through Neat Image to get rid of the noise.
So…. what do you think? like the SOOC images better? think the retouched shots are too fake? I need constructive criticism here folks! I’m doing another wedding in a few months, and need to work on my technique, both taking photos, and post processing!!
