Before & After

Here’s another look at a before and after image. This image was taken the other day at Ashley and Kyle’s Engagement Session. I started by changing the perspective a little bit. I suppose I didn’t notice it as I took the picture, otherwise I would have fixed it before pressing the shutter. If you look at the panels on the garage door, they’re not square within the frame. It’s maybe a little ‘thing’ I have about lines being straight, but I really feel like either they’re straight or they’re not, and when it’s this close, I feel as though I have to fix it to make it work.

I brought the image into Photoshop and removed the scratch on the door that ran into Ashley’s face because I thought it was a tad distracting. Then I tweaked the color of the garage door a bit to be a little more blue, and a little more dramatic than the actual color. To finish the image, I applied a vignette to draw the eye towards Ashley and Kyle. The final image (in my eyes) is far more dramatic than the original.

What do you think?

    The changes take it from being a nice picture to being a wall-worthy photograph. I especially like the deep blue. Nice!
