This is Miss Chloe. Such a cutie. I've done her newborn, 6 month and now 12 month portraits. She has the best eyes for catchlights. She ended up on the chair for most of her photos, because that was the only way to keep her still.
Couldnt resist this shot. She was playing peek-a-boo with her mummy. Classic! I love it! Definatly one for the scrapbook :)
Daddy's not too keen on nudie photos, but her mummy and I like this one. I put a feather boa around them, so their not too nudie-rudie. I like just a glimpse of it, it's kind of tu-tu-ish?
Played with brushes on this one. I've had people ask me how I do this, and I haven't meant to be rude, but it's a really long answer. I'll try and describe it here, but firstly let me say I worked it out by playing the other week when I did the photos of Ethan and Liam with their toy cars. I have no idea if it's the 'correct' way to do it or not.
Firstly I edited my pic to get it how I wanted it in full colour.
Then I used brushes to create both the photo border, and the little box border around the flowers. This little border I faded by 50%.
Using the rectangular marquee (?) tool I selected the entire photo, and desaturated it by 50%.
Again using the rec.marq tool I selected only the flower/border area and increased the saturation by 50%.
I kept doing this until I had obtained the level of colour I wanted. Some I have desaturated completly to B&W, others I have left a faint tint of colour in (including this one).
So if you can understand my instructions, give it a try, and let me know how you go.
As for the rest of the day, it was quite the norm really; worked. I did get a SM acceptance, and also last week was asked to do a challenge - using some papers I'd been eyeing off. They should arrive tomorrow, I haven't seen them in the flesh yet. Looking forward to it.
Have a great day my friends!
