Blueprint: Eyes “Wide” Open

Blueprint: Eyes “Wide” Open

Shawnee of Photography by Shawnee sent in this before shot and wanted to see how I would edit it with the Bag of Tricks action set.  I used both this set and the Eye Doctor to get to the after image.

I started with exposure. I used the Bag of Tricks – Magic Midtone Lifter. Then I used Magic Light on the face, hat and flower. Next I used Magical Contrast (Low).

After exposure and contrast, I decided to fix the color.  I used the Magic See-Saw action first to correct the overall color.  Then I ran the Reflected Color Cast Vanisher on a few spots that had a yellow cast (probably from the big flower).

Lastly, I used the Eye Doctor to brighten and sharpen those “big” eyes. This photo puts such a smile on my face.  I just love the expression. I hope my steps can help you in some way.
