This has been a crazy week. Between traveling, meeting with some new clients and my wife’s due date sneaking up, I’ve been living in a different world.
This week I did get a chance to work on some portraits.
The photo below is of my wife. I took this on a 50mm lens to reduce distortion and shot with the f stop at 1.8 to get the shallow depth of field.
This next one is my sister, with the same set up as the photo above.
The one below is shot at 50mm as well, but the f stop is up to 5.6, giving a deeper depth of field.
This one of my wife slightly annoyed with me has been touched up a bit. I reduced the noise, which also softens the skin and helps remove any blemishes.
I used the Match Color Adjustment on this next photo.
Below is the original and the photo I drew the color match from.
Finally, this one of my other sister involved using the color replace tool. I also used the “Lighten” blending mode to help it look more natural.
