I've been trying to learn flash photography the last couple weeks but haven't quite gotten it yet. Granted, I haven't had anyone to work with besides myself so it's been extra difficult. Needless to say, I've had to do a lot of correcting in Photoshop. So here are my two efforts.

I am a month away from graduating nursing school and we just had our pictures done. I didn't really care for the photographer's run and gun work so I decided to do my own. It turned out much better after a good bit of editing. This was actually taken late that night after my hair had pretty much fallen and my makeup ruined. But that's what PS is for right? lol.

I was just experimenting with my new reflectors with this one. There was much less post work with this one. I used my flash high above, camera left, shot through an umbrella. There was a 43" white reflector in my lap angled to reflect the flash. Another 22" reflector in my right hand angled at my face. I only have one flash so I used two constant lights behind me for a l little bit of separation with my hair.

Thank you very much. Now if only I could get it more right in camera :) Maybe once I get to actually be JUST the photographer. Lol.

This was probably my first real attempt at retouching; till this shoot I would be just mainly concerned with proper exposure and colour balance. Here I went a little further by removing some blemishes and stray hairs, little bit of work on the skin, and some vignette at the end. I personally thought I might have been a little heavy handed, didn't think the subject needed much retouching at all - she was very happy with the final result though, and that's what matters. Used combination of Photoshop and Perfect Effects. What do you think; any pointers for the future?

I don't think it was heavy handed at all. The subtle changes you made worked out quite well.

This one is great. Takes a typical shot and makes it special.

nothing special but just some tweaking and cropping. I normally don't take pictures like this but the cat appeared out of nowhere, camera in manual mode as usual, so it was just massively underexposed. Glad the lens focused beautifully :)

This is like my golf game... it's all about recovery. I'm constantly amazed at what I'm able to save out of a shot where I failed to execute correctly; in photography that is, nothing helps with golf.

I hear you, my golf game sometimes sucks too and I can recover my shot in PS and not on a golf course :) ;) ;)
