Adrienne’s Shoot on the Brac…and a photoshop lesson

Here are Adrienne’s best shots from our Cayman Brac shoot.  Adrienne is also Braden’s  mom who I posted a couple of weeks ago.  I LOVE that Adrienne is pregnant, and you can’t really tell, unless I wanted her to stick her belly out.

For you photographers out there, I have a great lesson for you.  You may already know about this, but if you don’t, you’re going to LOVE it!  In photoshop, go to “Filter” then to “Liquify”.  This is “digital liposuction”.  Use your “[” “]” keys to make your brush size bigger or smaller.  Then grab the area you want to move, and move it.  Once you see how it works, you’ll want to give everyone, including yourself, “lipo”!  Just be careful when you use it to not go overboard.  You want your clients to look at the picture and say “I look AWESOME!” not, “What’s wrong with my butt?”.  The best facial plastic surgeons will tell you that people should look at you and think you did something different with your hair, not that you got permanently caught in a wind tunnel.  So be subtle with it!

Here’s an example of how I used the liquify tool to enhance Adrienne’s belly and then also returning her to her pre-pregnancy size.  Her stomach falls somewhere between the 2 sizes.  I wanted her to have a great pregnancy picture.  Since I put her in a wedding dress, I didn’t want her to look pregnant since she’s not a pregnant bride and just modeling for me.

Here are the rest of Adrienne’s best

Again, I used the liquify tool to make her belly more obvious.
