Portrait re-edits

Here's my first pass at a few portrait re-edits using Elizabeth's advice. I do use VSCO, and for this project, kept the same preset: Kodak Portra 160 (-).

I'd love to hear your feedback!

With this portrait, my main goal was to bring down a lot of the bright luminance in the tall grass and to accentuate the warmer light hitting across the subject's chest and face. Really brought down saturation (like -15) to help skin tones.

Here, I brought down the saturation to help skin tones, and brought up shadows to bring out detail in the hands.

When we shot these images, the sun was setting directly behind us, and during that month in the spring, it set quite yellow. I cooled off the shadows in the edit, edited green levels, and adjusted the highlight levels to bring out that line of sun on the subject's face.
