I am rarely organized enough to make a photo that would emerge from my camera meet the theme of the week, but this time it has worked perfectly!
I took photos of beautiful Derya and her brother a few weeks ago.
I was so taken by her beautiful smile and gorgeous eyes that I didn’t notice that she had just had a glass of milk, and as nearly-three-year-old kids do, she had a little remnant of it around her chin and mouth.
Call it childhood, call it honesty, but wouldn’t it be great to wave a magic wand (or a clone or patch tool in PhotoShop) and remove the evidence of the milk? I think these web resolution photos are too small to let you see her milk beard (It is making the focus look a little softer, actually, interesting effect!), but trust me, in the full size images, it is there. (Probably most evident in the last one.)
So even though Stacey gave us all kinds of ideas for fixing imperfections in her post this week, I’m at a loss. What tool would you use to clean up her lovely, milky chin? If you can actually see it and want to play with the photo, send it to me and I will post it here with credit. Or I can send you the high res file.
And thank you, Derya, for letting us learn on your beautiful face! 🙂
