A little tutorial fun! - Behind the Camera and Dreaming

A little tutorial fun!

Thursday, January 26, 2012


Ashley & Branson began Tutorial Tuesday this week they are using this lightbox tutorial.I decided to do a mini lightbox. I used tissue paper (like from a gift) for the filters and just printer paper since my box was so small and I didn't want to go out and buy anything. I think it worked pretty well.

All I could think of was food (and flowers - but it was raining) to try my light box out, but now seeing others that have tried it...I could have been a little more creative. . . and the baby sandals barely fit.





For this week's Edit Me Challenge we have this little cutie:


For the edit I used LR & CS5.
I tweaked Fill Light, Exposure, and Brightness until I got an effect I was fairly happy with. I used noise reduction, sharpening, and adjustment brushes. Then I used one of my favorite actions PTM's Hiest.

And just for fun

I need a little more practice with my white space tweaking... any tips?

  1. Love your pretzel shot! And your edit me is awesome! What I am really sitting here thinking, though, is how cute would it have been to photograph each pair of tiny baby shoes and make a little book? LOL! They wear them for such a short time! Anyhow, I liked this tut from Ashley on the white space editing: http://www.ashleysisk.com/2012/01/tutorial-tuesday.html

  2. Great shots!!
    So many link ups this week are featuring a lightbox so I think that's my cue to make my own.
    I love the pretzels and the strawberries (LOVE strawberries and their colour).
    And your little one... beautiful!

  4. great shots, I really love your pretzel shot! Love your strawberries too! As for white balance tweaking, do you ever use presets? MCP Actions has some free lightroom presets for white balance and one of them is called "best guess white balance." I almost always like what it does, and if I don't I still use it and then tweak it from there, because it always gets me closer! here's a link for them if you're interested! Thanks for linking up to Tips & Pics!

I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
