This is a photo that I took for an engagement shoot.Â I use Photoshop Elements 8 as my photo editing tool for my photography business.
Next, I adjusted the lighting, brightened it up a bit.Â I increased the saturation so that the colours popped more.Â And finally softened the image to give a nice dreamy look.
Next, to erase something from the image.Â I erased some of the pebbles on the road, the bow from Nell’s boot, and one of the trees in the background.
Because I am familiar with the rule of thirds, my original photo was taken loosely following the rule.Â But for this assignment, I cropped the photo a little bit more to really showcase it.
And finally, I did a horizontal flip (left to right).
This was probably one of my favourite shoots that I’ve done.Â The difference from the original photo to the final product is really remarkable!Â (Although I do prefer the photo more before the horizontal flip.)
