Photo Recipe - Softening Harsh Sunlight
I love images of my kids playing together. We were at the beach last weekend for the beginning of our spring break and I was able to get a few shots of them before they caught me photographing them. Since this was smack in the middle of the day with the harsh sunlight, I decided to tweak it a little bit to soften it up.
After making some minor changes to my original photo, I added the Lychee Botanical veil and adjusted the opacity.
and then added the Blueberry Vintage veil. The vintage veil worked perfectly on this one to remove a little of the harsh sunlight.
Since this is on the beach, I added a little Golden Glow from the Spotlights collection. This sun-kissed the kids a little bit and draws your eye towards them in the photo.
Lastly I added a Medium Vignette to the photo. I like the soft light and slightly darker edges to the photo.
And that's it! Just a few simple and quick steps to alter the photo. To check out Love That Shot's collection of veils and textures, click here to visit their website! If you would like to see more of my work, please visit my website at www.stacywhitephotography.com.
