>> Friday, July 17, 2009 – Fix It Friday
Well, it's Friday again (hallelujah)...so I thought I'd give the "Fix it Friday" challenge a try again (you can find it at i ♥ faces).
Here's the "Before" picture - in my opinion, the biggest problem with this photo is all the distraction in the background.
Of the edits I did, here's my favorite "after" shot. Cropped, added a vintage process, and a vignette in Light Room. Then went to PS Elements for the cloning out of the clutter and a funky frame.
PS. Before settling on the cloning tool to remove clutter in the background, I tried to select the little girl to just eliminate the background all together so I could replace it with something else.
I'm not happy with the "cut" though (looks way unnatural) - Please....anyone have a good trick for isolating a subject to crop them from the background? This isn't the first time I've struggled with this, especially when dealing with hair. Help me out!
