How does one get snow off the face ? In photoshop also I moved its was very hard too set up in the snow .



Seriously , ppl the tripod sinks sideways and you need bricks . OUTside in 6 inches of snow .. Also the wind tangent was aweful . I am practicing on myself before I move on . One umbrella and should have used the gold reflector face shot .. I made too many mistakes however I tried any other ppl see erroer please say so .



A spnge of learning thank-you .

Snow tricks your meter into thinking everything is gray...hence your slight underexposure. If your camera as EV compensation, set it to +.7 or even +1.0 to bring details out of the shadows and get a brighter exposure. For the first pic, its a pretty good effort. Your focus is just a tad soft and your background is a bit of a distraction. Keep posting!!!

You picked a difficult subject to learn digital photography from. Much easier to choose a subject that you have some control over while you monitor settings, focus, etc. from the other end of the camera. Or did I misunderstand your post? I like the first shot much better than the second one. You appear more natural, and everything from expression to skin tones has far more appeal IMO. Shoot some more, and perhaps explain in more detail what your objectives are...I'm not sure I understand exactly what you want to accomplish. This is not a shortfall on your part, rest assured. English has always confused me even tho it's the onlylanguage I communicate with. Best regards,

I love the bedroom shot! Do you ever take outdoor pictures of nature? It can be challenging yet rewarding thats for sure. Keep posting, good stuff. :-)

Using PS Elements 3, there is a healing brush which can be used to get rid of the snow. It applies the pattern of the part it is aligned to, to the target area. You can also use the Spot healing brush, but it sometimes introduces patterns from the edge of the spot, so it is mostly used for small blemishes.

The overall exposure, and the shadows on your face can also be corrected in PS, using filters> render? lighting effects. I took the liberty of applying a slightly pink light to face and adjusting exposure somewhat, just to give you an example of what can be done.

Hello Krystals,

I really thought this image had some potential for a dreamy effect. I also added a little grain and highercontrast. I have so much fun trying new techniques...I hope you like it too....:G
