This was a"photo shoot" as they like to call it….between my daughter and her best friend. There were many happy silly moments between them as we were doing this and my oldest daughter kaila had her shots at this too….for a school photography project but with a much, much better camera, seems a little strange but she has a great camera and me …….her mom does not !!!! lol

I chose to add this particular image, not because of It’s clarity or such but rather because their beauty and their kindred spirits were captured in a little tiny moment….as I saw it, however I am Biased and I’m sure there is room for improvement so if you have suggestions please bmail me. I recently acquired photo shop but I only know how to use image size and the burn tool lol .

I think black and white photographs are difficult especially when working with two different skin tones so any suggestions are welcome in a bmail :) Thank you RB people :)

    Click on the little arrow on the bottom right hand of the burn tool and you’ll also find the dodge tool. A tiny bit of highlight dodge on both their eyes to enhance them will make this even better. Lovely shot, Lisa!

  • Where on their eyes ? in their eyes or around their eyes…..I’m dumbfounded and I’ve tried the dodge tool once and made a hideous mess of it…..he he he I guess I should practice :)

    Dodge tool will brighten up the whites, or lights. Use it at just 5% or so opacity, and use it gently, on a duplicate layer, adding sweeps of the tool till you get to the lightness you want. I NEVER use it on anything over 10% opacity….. So check it’s on highlights, change the opacity DOWN….and play with it gently….it’ll be your friend in no time :)

  • No need to reply……Me no speak Chinese hurrrrrrrrrrrr Ok. that’s why you are you and I am me he he he…..this is so funny…….I’m still trying to figure this out, I hope you don’t mind a bmail from time to time ….huh ? just until I figure this stuff out :)

    Oh…same goes for the burn tool….soft brush, low opacity, shadows first, midtones second, highlights hardly ever. Good luck :)
