Day 1

This image of my mother was taken at Broadbeach (Gold Coast) during an afternoon brunch on New Year's Day. In Lightroom I played around with saved presets (which can be found in the quick develop section) There are some fantastic overlays that are a really great shortcut for photographers. Using photoshop I used selective colour (to bring out the blacks and the iris) shadows/highlights, and gaussian blur (on the face so that the eyes appeared to pop more) I then went back to Lightroom to work more on contrast, clarity, and colour resulting in the finished product.
