Goes Megan from ChasingDavies!
We were talking yesterday about "red" as our theme for our "I See, You See." The idea of bright red lips for a picture came up, but I thought it sounded like it would be better served as a full on post for today so I had more time to mess around in Photoshop.
Immediately after taking the picture outside the airport fence by our work (weird sounding I know, but we literally walk out the doors and the private airport is right there), I knew I wanted to highlight the red lips by turning most of the picture black and white. The question was do I simply just want to do red lips OR take it a step further and use some of the fun Photoshop tools?
You shall see.
Here is what I started with:
From here, I first tried what I initially thought about doing. Turning down the saturation and popping her red lips using the eraser tool in PS.
Then I decided to try out the Sumi-e filter on the picture and popped the lips again and decided to also add in the color from her shirt since it matched perfectly with the red lips!
Then I was having a little too much fun with PS as you can see and decided to try one more filter. The diffuse glow filter. Ever tried it? I kinda like it!
So what do you think? What's your favorite of all of them?
