Week 6 by Becky
Arrggh, I hate when I don't check my ISO. This photograph was shot with the ISO set to 2000. So it has more noise in it than I wanted. I still like the photo; I just hate that my ISO was set so high. I normally like to shoot around 200. Oh well, live and learn. Anyway, this was good practice for processing a photo with a lot of noise. This is my daughter who graciously posed for me for this week's blog. Normally, she isn't an easy model because she gets frustrated that I take so long to get a shot and I keep saying pose one more time. I am always wanting to get better at taking portrait shots so I thought no better time than now. Shot using available window light. Opened in Photoshop and messed around to achieve this trendy high contrast look. I followed Scott Kelby's photo tips on achieving this. Also played around with skin softening techniques. Not that she needed it, but it is nice how it came out.
