1.) I popped those colors…I made the yellows and greens a little deeper and brighter which gave the image a warm, yummy feel.
2.) I added a little bit of light to the image.
3.) I softened the image
4.) I also added a texture to the image…you can see it in the top left corner. The texture is actually all over the image except on Joshua where I removed it. It gives the picture a richer more artistic feel.
5.) I sharpened the image.
I didn’t crop this image…I liked the crop right of the camera so I left it alone.
I love the color…the warmth…the soft smile…and the richness of this image. This picture is a prime example of what a custom photographer can do for you…create art. You can’t get that at a chain store…
