Blueprint Fan Share – Outdoor Senior Photograph

Today’s Blueprint was sent in by Charlotte Stringer of Charlotte Stringer Photography. Her steps were as follows:

  1. Open in ACR
  2. Correct the exposure in Camera Raw
  3. Patched out the acne with Patch Tool
  4. Used the MCP Eye Doctor photoshop action on the Eyes – Sharped pupils at 35% then ran it over her face at 12%
  5. Use the MCP Quickie Collection’s Fingerpaint medium action at 100% on background and 75% on shirt   – then 25% on Iris
  6. Used MCP Magic Skin’s Powder Your Nose action at 88% on face (except eyes)  and 60% on Hands
  7. Used MCP Touch of light on face in areas I need it brighter
  8. Added a light vignette and was done!

    This photo is really pretty and I like what you did to it Charlotte. The only thing I might have done in addition is worked on some of the reflected color casts on the side of her face and neck. Great job and thank you for submitting this and sharing with my readers.

    E~ The actions she used are all “paint on” actions. You just run the action, then use a brush to apply the adjustment where you need it, at the opacity you want.

    Nice job Charlotte!
