This is a portrait of my beautiful friend, Chamonix Thurston-Rattue, a glamour photographer, I have the pleasure of working with over the past few months. I took this photo of her for her web site and marketing materials and wanted to share how I edited it.
The image is actually very good just straight out of the camera (SOOC) but I worked on it just a bit to take it to a new level:
- Lightroom: Adjusted white balance, applied an urban preset, recovered highlights, sharpened
- Photoshop: Softened under eye shadows, touched up teeny tiny blemishes on skin and edited out a couple errant hairs, brightened eyes, darkened black background, added a texture to the background
- Total Editing Time: 15 minutes
