I absolutely loved this session I did in 2014. It was so fantastic in so many ways. Not only do I love the images, but I love that this session truly lent to whimsical editing...and let's face it, I'm all about whimsical editing.
So let me show you how I editing this image.
First I opened my image in Photoshop CC
Next I duplicated my background layer in layers and changed the blending mode to soft light.
After that I added a white layer mask and using a black paint brush I painted off the layer from the subject. It was just too dark on the subject.
After this set I ran the action Little Red that I created just for this edit. I pops the greens perfectly, adds warmth and pops the reds. I'm smitten by it.
The next action I paired with this edit is Wonderful from Wishtastic. It didn't need a whole lot of it, just a little taste. SO I changed the opacity to 38%
And finally I ran High Wire from Wish Circus. It has a cool tone, yet pops the reds and has a little bit of matte. I adore it.
Then I felt it needed one more thing. So I added a new fill layer in the layers. Changed the blending mode to screen and picked a brown/grey color. Make sure it's towards the darker spectrum.
Next I lightly painted the haze around the subject and on the ground. If the subject were standing I would do around the midline or horizon line. This adds a little whimsy hazy.
And that's it! TA-DA!
