Shoot & Edit ~ Faith, Edited!

Faith, SOOC:

Faith, Edited:

I cropped it to start. The lights on the ceiling were REALLY bugging me. I was drawn to them and not to my brother. {There wasn't much time to set up the pictures. There were over 200 Confirmands that morning so it wasn't really a sit & chat sort of event.} I adjusted the sharpness (motion blur), and brightened/contrasted the picture a bit. Then adjusted the color curves by darkening the highlights. But I really didn't like how it looked. 
So I converted it to B&W and called it a day.

Now that I'm looking at it, I totally should have cloned out the part of the light that is still there. Oh well. :) 

PHEW. I'm even late getting this up. Seriously, this week was nuts! 


  1. I like it very much in black and white! Good choice!

  2. I like the black & white edit too... good work!

  3. I like that you went with a black and white conversion...nice job!
