.Before & After Blog Hop.

I keep going back over the 900 plus images from the engagement shoot I did a few weekends back. I keep coming up with new shots that beg to be edited. This entry was one.

What I love about post-processing is the artistry. Now I know, and am the first to admit, I have a long way to go here, but I love taking an image and creating something beautiful, something.... more. I know in order to do this one must start with a good image, and I am working on that.

Before:
Photobucket

With this image I really wanted the person viewing it to notice the details - the curve of her cheek bone, his freckles, the shadows that accentuate the contour of their faces, her lashes, etc. I am not sure if I accomplished that or not. But I hope when you look at this portrait you feel the emotion, the intensity, the love in that moment of time that I saw through my lens.

After:
Photobucket

I hope I forever captured for Roger and Bethany a moment in time that is unforgettable.

I used my beloved Roxy (my Nikon D5000) for this shot with a Nikkor 18-55 mm lens. I edited in Photoshop CS3.

To see the artistry of others or to join in yourself head over to Monica's.

Tiffany, the photo is beautiful! With the edit even before I read your description of what you wanted us to see- that IS what I saw! I noticed the details and emotion! The edit makes the photo even more beautiful and I am sure they will always treasure this.
