Hi,

A sample picture which hasn't been reduced so much would be easier to work on but I did my best. Thiskind of lightseems to be all the rage with the kids these days... i get many requests for this type of low contrast shot.

BTW very pretty daughter you've got there.

Hi Canna,

I'm a li'l embarrassed to say that I'm just a newbie to photoshop and didn't really pay much attention to what I was doing and therefore didn't write it down...I was just doin' it...LOL :-)

I did read something about a technique they called hi-key for portraits and tried some of that and then added some grain and finally a lighting effect.

And yes, I have to agree....many great alternatives here!

I'm hoping to learn a lot more about photoshop here...I thoroughly enjoy all I've seen so far! :-)

I'd like to be able to take shots like that of some of my friends.

However, 3 megapixels (for cropping to an 8x10) and 380mm telephoto (I have a Canon S1 IS) isn't nearly enough, and F/2.8 is too shallow, ISO 400 is too noisy, and 1/15" shutter speed is too blurry and too dark.

Any suggestions < $400? assuming I'm at least 200 feet from my subject and shooting at night outdoors, using a non-stabilized lens AND the subject is engaged in strenuous physical activity

Sadley I'm not the person to ask about that one, but if you post again on a fresh thread, you may get your answer

Just some sharpening and levels, then added some grain and contrast.

Welcome brick a brack, nice of you to join us. But I think you must have come to the wrong thread as therehaven't beenany ugly pictures posted here :-).

In any case, if you had let your mum take a photo of you in focus in the first place none of this would have happened, so it's your fault:blah:.

Please forgive your mum this little indiscretion. Us parents and grandparents forget how embarrassing it was when we were young. And yes, we were young....once :O.

Just take pity on George, my grandson in my avatar with me. That poor lad is going to grow up with a resemblance to me , and he doesn't even know his pic is here :!:

Look forward to seeing some photos of your mum, if you can catch her off guard. That'll teach her :lol:.

Stevekin.
