Environmental Portrait





I regularly use Lightroom, so making basic adjustments to exposure, contrast, etc. was a familiar process. I don't have as much practice using Photoshop to remove unwanted objects from photos, so I spent most of my time experimenting with the different tools explained in the class videos. I removed the man in the bottom left corner, removed a few stray hairs from the main subject, and cropped the photo to get rid of the edge of the bolder at the bottom of the photo. After making these edits, I dodged and burned to increase contrast.

The examples from class made me realize that I don't always notice a photo's distracting elements unless they are people/things that obviously don't belong. Is there anything else that I should remove from my photo?
