Robyn’s One Four Challenge is back! Yay! This challenge has always been one of my favourites so it’s great to see it return.
For this challenge we’re asked to edit one photo in four ways over a month, posting a different version to our blog each week. I’m a little late joining in so rather than posting just a single edit this week, I’m posting two.
I can’t remember the exact settings or even every step I took to create this edit. I know that I reduced the clarity, shifted the temperature and tint, increased the vibrancy and altered a few other settings in camera raw before opening it in Photoshop Elements 13. I then selected the area of the ‘camp fire’ and played around with the levels to make it stand out a little more. To finish off I overlaid a soft light layer in a low opacity.
For this edit I reopened week one in camera raw and reduced the saturation. I again played around with settings until I was happy with the shadows and highlights, etc. In Photoshop I then added a faint ‘cooling’ photo filter to give it a chillier, bluish hint.
I hope you like them. Next week I’ll try to keep a better record of edits!
