Back for another Before and After Monday! This week, I'm sharing a photo shot in my studio of this adorable little cowboy. The thing I love about using a studio is that the editing needed is minimal. As you can see, all I did to tweak the SOOC is a small s-curve in curves, adjusted the levels by making sure it was covering all the way from 0-255 and a little bit of sharpening. Now, I DID add a texture to the background using Totally Rad's Dirty Pictures.
I converted it to two different Black and Whites because his outfit landed itself to a bit of an "old timey" feel. To get this, I first converted in Totally Rad's Radlab using Boring Old B/W adjusting to my liking. Then I just added a "Fill Layer" to add the tone and adjusted the opacity to about 5%. It added just enough of that "sepia" look without being a full on sepia.
Thank you for joining me on another Before and After Monday. As always, if you have a photo that you would like to send to me for editing or for use in my B and A posts, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
