Post Process Into Something Different at the Playground

by · March 6, 2012

Another day and another trip for the kids to play on the local playground equipment at the park.

Portrait of two toddlers on a playground see saw springer

With this shot the initial image was not that impressive, but I liked the texture of the play bark under the see saw and knew I could increase the contrast to make a striking image.  After tweaking in Lightroom the final image looked great, and really captured the cold and “gloomy” day when it was taken on – even though the kids were not gloomy!

This shot has since been blown up to a large 24inch x 18inch print and hung on the wall. The two toddlers are now over three years old, so I think it’s time to take a new portrait of them, maybe sat on the same see saw.
