I Heart Faces – Fix-It-Friday!!

t’s time for another I Heart Faces Fix-It Friday!!

Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I Heart Faces is a fantastic, interactive photography/editing blog. Every Friday they have something called “Fix-It-Friday” where they post an image for you to edit. They also have contributors who explain how they “fixed-up” the photo so it’s an opportunity to learn new techniques. Other readers also post their links to edits so you get a huge variety of editing solutions.

Check out this week’s challenge and all the other beautiful edits here:

I tweaked levels, cleaned up some of the marks on the face, did a little dodge and burn of the face, used dodge/burn tool to pop the eyes a little, and then painted a black layer over the background and tweaked blending mode/opacity.

I only had time for two stylized edits, but I did attempt using a texture this week:
