Wow. What a perfectly timed day on iheartfaces! I took this shot yesterday and was really happy with it until I downloaded it and tried to work with the color. I really struggled to make the clothing look true to the (blue) coloring or balance the skin tones of mama and baby. Overall the picture has felt too cool, and all of my edits end up feeling too warm. I would love some advice!
Unfortunately, I took the pic and made the edits all yesterday before I knew I was going to submit it for advice. So, I can’t even tell you what I did on each of the edits or speak much to the settings when I took the picture. I can say it was shot on manual with a Canon 50D w/a 17-85mm f/4-5.6 lens, ISO 160 (I think), and I edited in Photoshop CS2.
If anyone has links to tutorials for adjusting skin tone (or anything else you think may be helpful), please let me know!
