Good to Wow: Good Night Edition, Edited

It was lights out on Good to Wow this week, and here are my edits:

Audrey's blankie SOOC:
SOOC Good Night Blankie


For the edit, I adjusted in RAW followed by a high pass filter and soft light blending mode. I then applied Coffeshop's Vintage action and added the words.

The Blankie and Bear SOOC:
SOOC Good Night Blankie & Bear


Blankie and Bear got edited first with a RAW adjust followed by a high pass filter and soft light blend mode. I then adjusted color and light and applied the Sepia action. I added a layer mask and brushed the sepia off the blankie and bear.

My sweet lil' Audrey SOOC:

I couldn't help myself. I did two edits on her. The first was the most simple one. I did my normal edits: RAW, high pass filter, soft light blend. I then ran Coffeeshop's Perfect Portrait action. I love this action! You can pick and choose which parts of the action you want and adjust each one accordingly. I liked this edit because it kept her most natural.

For the second edit, I did my normal edits and once again ran Coffeeshop's Perfect Portrait. But I only utilized the eye define and skin softening portions of the action. Following this, I ran Coffeeshop's Velvet Truffle action. I love this action...on anything really! I love how it softens and really does bring a velvety tone to any photo. In this edit, I brushed the truffle off the bear and blankie using a brush with adjusted opacity.

I like all of your edits - especially the first two (and I'm not usually a fan of selective color). Wonderful job.

wonderful edit, I really like the one where she is behind the bear and blanket, it's probably just the way she was standing but she looks like she's about to give that bear what for!

My favorites are the one with the selective color and the middle pic of your daughter. I have the Perfect Portrait action, too and it is one of my favorites!

Michelle said...

(jaw dropped) Wow!! These are excellent!! You do such a great job of editing and keeping things subtle and simple, but adding the extra touch!! Love all your edits!

I even like the selective color - just so slightly done! I'm not always a fan (well, I'm not usually a fan of MY selective colors edits! lol)

Beautiful edits. Your final or the CS edit of our last photo is my favorite.

What a great job you did! I actually really love the selective color....and I usually am not a big fan of that! It just really really works well with the subtle shade of pink! Beautiful!
