Artist's Description

From another Wedding shoot.

Original digital image by my Assistant – Kiah.
Post Production by Byron.


Funny story about this shot…

The Bridal Party had just arrived in this gorgeous 1960’s hot rod and I saw this opportunity for this style of photo.

Unfortuneatly my Assistant Photographer had the same idea and leapt into the front seat before I could get to the car.

I hate it when my Assistant Photographer gets better shots than me. Its a good thing she is my sister!


THE PROCESS…

  1. Remove skin blemishes and lines by using the Cloning Tool.
  2. Remove guests from the background by using the Cloning Tool.
  3. Clean-up the whites of the eyes by using the Burn/Dodge Tool.
  4. Add slight Caramel tint to the coloured part of the eyes.
  5. Increase size of highlights in the eyes.
  6. Brighten the teeth by using the Burn/Dodge Tool.
  7. Brighten the lips by using the Burn/Dodge Tool.
  8. Adjust Levels to create a “warmer” colour and to reduce the effects of some bad sun-burn.
  9. Add selective soft-focus.
  10. Cloned from the available areas of tree and bush in the original image over the top of the people.
  11. hard clone of about 80% opacity then a soft clone of about 30% opacity. It was still obvious (to me anyway) that it was a messy bit of cloning because of all the repetition due to such a small area being available to clone.
  12. added a soft blur to that area, and then added an overall blur with a small clear non-blurred area in the centre (done in Picasa).
