Ok, so a blog that I frequent is Momology, by Christina. Along with a few other blogs I enjoy, her photos are some of my favorites. So what do you do when you enjoy a blog? You search their archives! I found her post on a tutorial about her standard processing, and since I love Photoshop and use it myself, I thought I would give her process a try.
Now, if you know me, you know I am longing for a DSLR, since I just own a digital point and shoot. Christina's photos are as sharp as they come and mine look a little noisy, but I still seem to like how they turned out. To me they are sort of surreal looking. Her tips on how to make the color "pop" was really cool. I also like the different option she has to sharpen an image.
I love it when people share thier processing stages, because even though someone may take a tutorial and follow them step by step, as I did here, they will always come out different because of the photographer, subject and camera.
So, thanks Christina for sharing your process. I have been having fun changing things up!
