This Fix-it Friday photo was submitted by Angie Arthur Photography, an IHF contributor. Here is her before:
And here is my edit:
I wanted to go black and white on this image since the pink shirt felt out of place to me. I also wanted something very gritty in feel to go with the scratchy texture of the grass and meadow.
My workflow, using Photoshop CS4:
~add contrast and darken midtones
~convert to black/white using sliders to tweak each tonal range
~unsharp mask to increase contrast (20/30/5)
~high pass layer to sharpen and add grain
Thanks for looking!
