So I realized once I came to my blog for this Friday’s fix, that I haven’t blogged in a WEEK!! Wow, I knew it was bad, but didn’t know it was that bad. I do have a blog-post a’brewin’ but it’ll have to wait. I’m really terribly busy *snerk* or something. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Actually I do have a photo-shoot this afternoon with two adorable seniors, so I won’t have time to post probably today, but maybe tomorrow. So carpe maรฑana! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today’s fix was too adorable NOT to work with! I wasn’t really planning to do a fix-it today, but when I saw the picture, I simply HAD to! This little red headed baby is so tiny and so cute! Isn’t it amazing how unbelievably cute a baby can be even when you don’t see it’s face?? I’m amazed by them, always will be. Here was the original image.
Fix-It Friday #87

I use Aperture 3

My first edit I was going mostly for color correction. I used this edit as the start for my other two. I brightened it up a little bit, bumped up the contrast, brought down the Red tones and used a skin smoothing brush on the hands. Also a square edit, and a contrast brush on the black shirt.

Second edit is B&W with a red filter. I absolutely LOVE this preset!! I cropped in wider, but cloned out part of the arms so the focus would be more on baby’s head and the hands.

Final edit: I tilted the image for a little more interesting angle. Used the high-contrast sepia preset. Ran skin smoothing brush again and contrast brush, and that about does it.
