Fix-It-Friday - Number 12 - "My Shadow"





This week I am packing up my house (and for the next couple more), so don't have too much time to play. So I simply uploaded to Picnik and worked only there.


This weeks FIF was all about removing shadow, but actually in order to achieve this I actually up-ed the shadows (just a touch) and then the highlights +++, the exposure a fair bit and the contrast to match the highlights. This up-ing of everything in varying degrees served the purpose of lightening his face, but also the whole background area.

Just so the whole thing did not look white I texturized and mask-framed and THEN rotated, so that most of the frame rotated back out.

I quite like the result, but no multiple edits this week - sorry folks :D

Now, don't forget to take a look at what other folks have
done with this lovely photo this week.


And when you're done perhaps someone could give me some tips on what to do with THIS picture...

POST SCRIPT ... I decided to have another little play tonight - all with Picnik. Hope you like :D

Good luck with your move! I always thought that was one of the hardest things in the world to do! The sorting and the packing....it gives me a headache just thinking of it. I hope it will go smoothly for you!

Such great work!!! I like all of your edits. I especially love the crop and angle in your later plays. Color and b&w are all beautiful!
