Shoot & Edit :: Week 3 {Goodnight}

{Secondary Edit}
07Goodnight texturecopy

many stated that you couldn't wait to see what i would do for all of my edits! and since the only image that i had not slightly
edited was the last in this post i decided to give these two photos a secondary edit with the use of some textures :)
happy viewing everybody!!! for larger view {original edits here}


{Secondary Edit}
41Goodnight textureopy


here is the {SOOC} that i had originally intended to edit... SOOC, Raw, & Final Edit
nothing says {goodnight} to us & our little beans like bedtime stories
& soaking up those last few precious quiet moments of the day!
{Raw Edit}
46Goodnight rawcopy
here is what i did in {Adobe Camera Raw}:
white balance: as shot
slight use of recovery
increased fill light & brightness
increased clarity
increased saturation & vibrancy
{Final Edit}
46Goodnight texturecopy
for my final edit:
added vintage photo effect
then used eraser to remove effect from the page area to help sharpen
added some focal soften around the area of the words on the page to help them stand out more
& last but not least i added a tiny bit of vignetting around the image for slight bit of framing to draw your eye in!

the differences aren't that noticeable between the SOOC & Raw Edit but lightening it up some helped to add a pop in the final edit!
not overly thrilled with any of my edits today but oh how i am enjoying having these moments captured to relive & remember Ü

pop on over to Ashley's blog & link up for her part of Shoot & Edit...
& thanks for all the great/helpful tips Ashley & Jill!!!!
more shot & edit:

Happy Thursday!!!

These are so great!! I especially love the last 2 sets you did. Great perspective on the last one and love the little hand sneaking off with a book in the 2nd one.

I love both edits (for both photos) for different reasons... and I can't decide which one I like better. :) Both are great!

We have a few of those books in the kids' bedrooms and we still love reading them!

Thank you for your kind words over at Becky's on my interview. xoxo
