Fix-it Friday #54

This week’s Fix-it Friday challenge
certainly was a challenge!

The submitting mom says,
“This is a photo of my 2 year-old Parker.
I am bothered by the harsh shadow on his face
and the washed out colors of the photo.
His eyes are a beautiful blue and you just can’t see that.
I would love to see what you guys can come up with!”

This edit was a reminded me
about the importance of checking for shadows
and backgrounds before snapping the pictures
so you’re not stuck trying to fix them later.

Here’s the SOOC:


And here are my edits:

    The third one is my fave. What you said about checking for shadows before snapping the picture, I understand now! I never meant for this photo to be so cute, I was trying to get a picture of his tie!! and with a VERY busy 2 yr old, you snap where you can before they throw a fit that a camera is in their face!!!:) Thank you for working on my photo this week, you edits are GREAT!!ReplyCancel

      I totally understand… I have a wiggly 3 year old and an even wigglier 1 year old! I can’t tell you how many of these shots I’ve tried to “save!” All that hard work just makes me more intentional about avoiding those things if at all possible! 🙂 Glad you liked the edits! 🙂ReplyCancel
