Pat is so funny! She thought Noah might be getting kind of bored when it issued the "seemingly interminably endless winter event" last week! I forgot to mention that Noah is actually NOAA, the North Atlantic Atmospheric Organization, and is a computer-generated voice. NOAA alternates between a male voice and female voice, and the male voice sounds like a cross between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Steven Hawkings. Today, NOAA said we might get wind chills of 40 below in this next week, and "a cold weather warning may have to be issued." "MAY have to be issued!!!!!" If this doesn't result in a cold-weather warning, what exactly would?
Here's a photo taken of me and my daughter, on auto, with on-camera flash, in a restaurant about a month ago. I tried to play with the skin tones.
Last night, I liked it. Today, I don't know. My daughter's skin looks pretty good; maybe I need new skin. (And hair.)(Dang, it was after a long day of work.)(I think my husband's tired of hearing about this.)
But here is a tutorial, and a thread on 2peas, that I did find helpful in trying to establish a beginning point for skin tones. Now, my plan is to first try to adjust for color balance, whether it's with a WhiBal or custom white balance, or finding a neutral point in the photo. Then I'll try the smugmug settings in cmyk mode.
From this, I'll guess. I'll probably use a selection tool around skin areas and an adjustment layer, either selective coloring, or hue saturation.
Any HHCC most welcome!
