I don't have a fancy digital SLR camera I actually use a Fujifilm Finepix S1000x. It's just a basic point and click digital camera. It does have a manual options so I can adjust shutter speeds and aperture settings, also something I'm learning from my mom. Unfortunately, my hubby won't pay for a higher end camera. So I have work with what I have.
I still have a lot to learn about editing, especially when it comes to layer masks. What took the most time was trying to lighten his eyes. Parker has very dark brown eyes in person, I was hoping to lighten then up just a bit in photos and it didn't really do what I wanted. When I adjusted the colors it darkened his eyes even more and I couldn't figure out how to re-lighten just his eyes. I think I started working on this too late in the evening and I was getting tired and a little frustrated.
I toned down the contrast and color saturation. I like this one much better :)
If you have any suggestions leave me a comment, I'd love to have some feedback!
