I Heart Faces: Fix it Friday

Fix-it_lg I’m participating in I Heart Faces’ Fix-it Friday today. This photo was submitted by a participant of their many photo challenges.  She said that she had been doing a 365 challenge and this was one taken as all of the natural light went away for the day. This is the before:


I lightened it up a bit, Pioneer Woman’s Cooler Action, cropped it a bit, and changed it to black and white in Photoshop Elements 8. Here’s what it came out looking like when I was all done:


On a personal and exciting note, I am going to be upgrading from a Nikon D40 to a Nikon D90 soon. It’s long overdue and I am also shooting my very first wedding in October. While I’m nervous, I think I have a lot of time to get tips and tricks from all of you wonderful photographers in the I Heart Faces Network. That’s my exciting news for the day. I think we might even have the D90 before Peanut arrives.  Oh yeah and I got a new Blackberry that has a camera on it, my old one didn’t. I’m happy that I finally have a camera that will go everywhere with me. Even if it is just a poor quality one.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week.
