Shoot and Edit: Thanksgiving edit

December 2, 2011 Sarah Coggins

I ran through this edit pretty quickly last night with the help of a couple of actions…

  • Ashley’s Nice & Easy action – adjusted layers to taste;
  • HDR action minus the HDR_for_Dummies2 portion – I only used the shadow portions, as I didn’t like what the other part did to the photo;
  • added a new Hue/Saturation layer and adjusted;
  • rotated the image (not too unusual for me – my shot was crooked! Sure the subjects were straight, but we were on an incline and it was pretty obvious distraction to me to see the white house in the background tilted.) and cropped.

    I highly recommend the book What Was Lost: A Christian Journey through Miscarriage for any woman of faith who has suffered a miscarriage or anyone wanting to gain insight to help comfort a spouse, friend, sister, daughter, etc.
