The One Four Challenge(you can read about it, and join it here). This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks.
For this month I decided to edit a photo that was actually from a 35 mm slide taken in the mid 1960s by my father. My family visited friends who had a cottage up at Madge Lake in Saskatchewan. There were 4 kids in my family and 6 or 7 in the other family(one of the boys towards the right may have just been a friend)!! We had such a good time together.
This is the original photo of the 2 families(a scan of the 35 mm slide):
I am the one right in the middle of the photo…sitting on the deck. My brother is standing behind me and my 2 sisters and mom are just to the left of the door.
I thought it would be fun to play with this photo….
The first step was to get rid of as much clutter(ie litter) and distractions and to do a basic tune-up including a slight crop at the bottom and a tone-down of the redness. These editing steps were done on my iPad using Touch/Retouch and on my computer using Photoshop. This is Week 1 photo:
I didn’t do a great job getting rid of the boxes on the left side under the deck…but I can work on that for next week along with trying to improve skin-tones.
