I think they look great!! I like the way you do the skin!!!! Seriously! Looks very nice and you definitely have your own style which totally works! I love them!

The last 2 have a lot less contrast than the first 2 - but if that's what you were shooting for - cool! I like the contrasty pics the best!

Thanks Teri, Honestly I didn't do anything specific to the skin. I only have Lightroom so I can only edit the entire pic basically. I guess it helps that this little lady has great skin! I'm glad you mentioned the style...I've been worried about that, wondering if it's only me that likes them and everyone else thinks they are too bright or whatever... THANK YOU

She's so adorable!

These are pretty good. The skin tones look fine to me. However, I will say that the pictures look pretty soft.

I love the first two but in all three of the colored ones, her skin seems orange to me... The last two look soft to me,

Also, in light room if you click on the adjustment brush, and change it you can edit just parts of the picture....

oh yea...guess I wasn't thinking about that as I don't use it much yet. I'm pretty new to it. When do you find yourself using that tool the most?? I've used it trying to lighten up blown areas before...but I think thats about it

before I got my PS back I'd use it when half of a face had a color cast on it (my son's jacket is blue, and half his face would get a really bad blue tinge) I use it to dodge and burn a bit, when I want to bump the saturation on just part of the picture (like my daughter's sweaters) but don't want her face all red....


This pic (all wrong...) I wanted to bring out the bold colors of her sweater, but it kept making her look like a sun burned oompa loompa. I used the saturation brush on her sweater, flower and the ball.

1 would be awesome if she was looking up.

2 is super cute, but feels like a really tight crop.

3 rotate so it's a landscape, i keep tilting my head

4 not loving the angle, and her head/eyes seem soft, but I do like it in bw.

I use the adjustment brush in LR to edit the eyes. For blown out areas, I have found using the graduated filter is way better than the adjustment brush


Great shots!
