Two program edit for finished look

I like to shoot at your home, in your space, with backdrops that are meaningful to you.  I hope you tell your family stories about where we did the photo session and how surprised you were at the end product.  Getting the shot is fun, editing to where I want it to be can be a challenge.

In this case, I am editing photos based on a photo my client showed me that had a blown out background and was framed by curtains.  I want the emphasis to be on her silhouette so subtracting out everything distracting is important.  While I could have done some interesting things in color, and with the first image, the image that resulted from my edits is much closer to what my client wanted (and I like) and that is the goal.  We’re all happy, yahoo!
Next up!
