Daily Photo- Child Against Sky

I must be on a desaturation kick here, I’m enjoying taking photos to the edge of black and white but not quite there for the past few days.  This photo was actually desaturated completely, then I added in some yellow highlight tones and reddish shadow tones… it turns it into a nice sepia-like photo.  If you read the caption that comes with the image, you will see- this was a definite TOSS from a recent photo shoot with a kid.  Out of focus, except her hair, and it was bland in color.  I made it more contrasty, changed the coloring drastically, and even had some photoshop fun with the clouds (see if you can spot where I edited some hair and replaced it with cloud formations!).  Anyways, it turned a trash image into something quite different and enjoyable.  I’m going to be putting together a wall display of infant and child art for Pediatric Partners of the Southwest soon, and this may actually end up being a part of the display.  Weird, huh?
