Too Cute to Be True

BEFORE
AFTER
Using PSE 8, first I cropped the photo.  I then brightened and sharpened it a little.
To finish I applied TheCoffeeShop Baby Powder Room.  I used the Red Skin Repair at 20% to even out Bennett's skin tone.  I then defined and brightened his eyes, but I forgot to write down what opacity I used.

To see more before and after pics head on over to pixel perfect



This weeks challenge at The Paper Mama is Black and White.  The last few weeks I have entered this challenge I have ended up feeling a little insecure about my photos, so this week I considered sitting out. Then I took this photo of Bennett using Sam's iPhone and I couldn't resist posting it.  We were flying to Louisville and Bennett was enjoying his very own seat

This photo is SOOiP
(Straight Out Of iPhone)


It is not a technical photo, but it doesn't have to be when you are that CUTE!!!

You did a great job and well done on his skin! A LOT of people go waaaay overboard on that skin smoothing business, but I think you've done it perfectly!!

Very nicely done on the edit! You did a great job on his skin and making him the main focus of the shot.
