Before and After

We don't get many opportunities to see this:

The smile of a teenager. I had to take some shots (using my Canon Digital Rebel XTi with a 1.8 50mm lens), even though the lighting was atrocious.


And then I tried to adjust in Photoshop Elements. I cropped, lightened and softened. Adjusted the color. I was trying to get a light, airy, summertime effect.

Do you think it worked?


If you like my shots, you need to visit Pixel Perfect for more before and after fun! And if you want to play along all you have to do is show us your SOOC (straight out of camera) shot and then the edited version. Link back to Pixel Perfect and link up your post below! Feel free to share with us your editing program and camera gear too!

  5. I DO think it worked! The editing really brought out the beautiful bokeh, but more so, her beautiful face. :)

  8. What a beautiful girl, great smile. And I had to laugh at the "smile" comment. My son is just out of his teens and I'm STILL not seeing that smile much, lol! Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. Have a great weekend!!

  10. very nice photo and crop....i know what you mean about the sun....i use the shade during the high sun times...usually the light is so bright that it gives a nice reflecting light.
