After all this white balance talk tonight, I figured I would just go black and white on this one. :D

From today's portrait:

Custom b&w manually in photoshop since im to cheap to buy silver efex pro. :) slight curves, channel mixer at 40% red 40% green and 20% blue after looking at the channels seperately, then gradient map that seems to help with contrast. :)

Like all of them.

The Wisteria (?) blossoms are pretty outstanding in this. The foreground blurred seems a bit heavy on this one. I've been struggling myself with this particular aspect the past month, trying to include foreground foliage.

Did you try to remove some shadows from the arm or shoulder area? Curious, because something seems different.

I think the blurred part over the hair is the most distracting in this one. Love the rest of the shot though. But it would be no surprise if this looks much different printed at 8x10 or 8x12.

Yeah, I've been trying to include some foreground in my images. Not sure if Ive mastered it yet. I see what your saying on her arm. It has to be a shadow from the neighboring trees. I didn't do any type of healing on this at all.

Now that I look at it again, that spot on her arm, may be from the foreground. Look how it affected her hair. Its damn near dead on to her skin tone.

I love it, Gerry (gave a bit more feedback on the B & W forum).

IMO the color one looks a lot better.

While I like the occasional black and white, are you guys selling many of them to seniors?

You had image editing on, so I gave them a quick run-through.... I only spent around 30 seconds on each one.
All I did was boost the saturation in Photoshop Elements 10; They might stand a shadow lightening, but just boosting saturation did wonders for the colors.

Great Shots, by the way!


I always use flash, so my WB doesnt change a lot outside.

I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

I've never had any luck with doing curves adjustments. Do you have any pointers?

It's not really anything complicated; I often use curves adjustment layers to manipulate exposure in a slightly more precise way. Your photos seemed a little under, so I would just do something like this:

This is something I struggle with a bit combating exposure and curves layers. Do you pros leave the raw slightly underexposed so that when you add in the contrast from a curves adjustment it brings everything to the proper exposure? Mostly I seem to have to go back and burn down skin highlights after I get everything else looking to have enough contrast.
