I missed Lisa's first challenge (although I intend to go back and do it as it was about how to set your camera's white balance).
But I finished her second challenge lickety-split!
These are very nice challenges because they are actually photography tutorials! (That Lisa is so smart - she's tricking us into learning!)
I use Photoshop Elements all the time to get rid of the "gray blahs" and other poor-exposure issues, so I wasn't sure if I'd learn anything new, but I did, so I'm really pleased I did it! I encourage y'all to head on over there and read what she has to say. And even if you don't have any photo editing software, she's got a link to a FREE program that she says is no slouch - so DO hop on over, get some free software, and commence to save your photographic "goners"!
I decided to use a photo of a card I made for my minister because it had a healthy amount of white on it and that photo really stank. I took it in the late afternoon, and, as you can see below, what a STINKER!!!
Isn't that a murky bit of yuck? It's got such an overload of grey, it's heading into the world of purple, for goodness sake!
Now after two very quick tweaks in PE:
It's still not the best photo in the world, (I used the flash, I fear) but now it looks presentable! NOW you can actually use this photo. (I have to admit that there are other things I can do to it that will continue it's journey of improvement, but those things lie outside the scope of this challenge.)
So go try it!!!
