Blueprint – From Snapshot to Portrait in 6 Steps

Blueprint – From Snapshot to Portrait in 6 Steps

This boy is just adorable.  He is the “kid of the week” for the Fix It Friday edit at I Heart Faces.  I loved my edit of this one so I had to share my steps with all of you.  I would love to know what you think of the before and after photo edit I did below using a mix of manual editing and MCP Photoshop Actions.

    GORGEOUS!!! What a dramatic photograph. Thanks for the tips Jody! I too vote for some background help. I’ve been playing with a few of my photographs today to extract the background like you have and so far…no dice.
