There is a great blog for all aspiring photographers, i heart faces. Created by some incredibly talented photographers and featuring professional photographers as guest contributors, it has been a treasure trove of information for me. As the title suggests, it is mostly about portraits, though many assignments include faces in unexpected ways.
One of their more helpful training segments is Fix It Friday and today, since it is Friday and Tom is home and Regan is taking a very, very rare nap, I decided to participate.
Here is the original photo, contributed by Susan Keller.
Here is my color fix:
While I was tempted to do a bit of a color washout, I was taken by the pops of color that came through with some basic fixes and decided to embrace the greens and yellows.
Here is my black and white fix:
I chose not to go with a complete black and white, but allowed some of the green tones to bleed through.
