Fix it Friday

Hello, my name is Daiquiri, and I'm a photography junkie. I love all things photography. Photography gear (especially Nikon - I really really REALLY want this camera), photo software (Lightroom and PS Elements are my favorites), Rangefinder magazine (which you can get FREE), amazingly talented photography friends, and most of all...beautiful images that capture a little slice of time for us to keep forever.

The problem is that not every image is beautiful. There's something just a *little* off....it's not quite the perfect capture of the moment we'd hoped for...the setting on the camera wasn't quite right...etc.

This image is a perfect example. It's a great shot - excellent composition, very sharp, interesting perspective. But...just a little flat. It's a bit too dark, and those beautiful brown eyes get lost. It just doesn't have that magical sparkle that makes you catch your breath and whisper "wow" when you see it.


Enter...photo editing. Did I mention that I love this stuff?

I love this stuff.

Here's the image after I played with it a bit in Lightroom, and removed a few distractions in PSE. I considered taking the snow off her hat because it tends to grab my eye, but I decided to leave it since it adds to the feel of the moment captured.

Check out her amazing eyes!



Do you have any photographs that you love, but that you're just a tad disappointed in? Images that are special to you, but that need a little help?

Well, I'm here to help.

I'm now offering Photo Editing and Restoration services as part of my business. Drop me a line or give me a call if you'd like pricing info.
Ahem...I might even do a couple of images for you for FREE since I'm trying to expand my portfolio in these new areas...I said might...that means maybe...(wink,wink) ;-)

Hop on over to I ♥ faces for more fix it fun today. Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty! Nice and bright...smooth and clean. I like the crop too!

I wish people would learn how increasing the brightness can help your photos. I'm all the time seeind a nice photo that I WISH they'd just brighten-up. :)

I can't believe how much reflection you can see in the edited photo...there is not so much as a fleck of light in her eyes in the first pic. Amazing.

I might take you up on that *free* (ahem, maybe) service.
