Photography Class, Part Deux

As part of my photography-themed Birth-mas gifts, Dusty got me a new photo editing software.

We got it loaded on my Lappy where it has remained virtually untouched ever since.

To be honest, it's because I just have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to this kind of stuff.
But tonight in photography class, someone mentioned that they had been able to learn all kinds of neat tricks using tutorials they had found on the YouTubes.

I tried my hand at it tonight and came up with two successes! Unfortunately, I'm tired, so I'll post the most obvious success story.

Disclaimer: I in no way, shape, or form condone the kind of photo editing I'm about to show. I'm not a fan at all. However, a surprising number of folks have asked me if I know how to do it. Up until now I happily said "nope!" But now, well... gah!



I specifically remember telling my wedding photographer, the lovely Brenda A., that this was one editing trick I did not want up her sleeves.

What say you? Is there a time and a place for selective coloring?

Nope! I do understand that tons of people like it though so sometimes a photographer has to follow his or her clients' wishes. :-)
