Your Photo- My Edit

Lauren Grace

My wonderful friend, Cheri, recently sent this picture to me of her beautiful little niece, Lauren Grace. I felt so honored to edit a picture for Cheri. I am enamored with her photography style, and I jumped at the chance to collaborate on this project with her.

Here are the basics on how I edited this image…

*Enhanced the natural light of this photo in Lightroom 2.3

*Imported image to Photoshop Elements 7 and desaturated the color

*Coffeeshop’s Powder Room 2 on her eyes

*Used four different textures from the Florabella texture collection

*Flattened image

*Duplicated background layer and made the layer copy “color burn” at 19%

Cheri, it was truly a blessing to work with you. Let’s do it again!!!

Gorgeous edits! And is it just me (I know I've been watching too many reruns of The Closer), or does your niece look exactly like Kyra Sedgwick must have looked as a kiddo? Funny.

Amazing. I am attempting to learn GIMP, can't afford photoshop stuff right now, been laid off over a year now but they say GIMP is similar. I am SOOOO lost at it though. It only aggravates me. Then I see beautiful photos like yours and I want to try again.
