I am also trying to learn how to use curves in photoshop to make my pictures look better. I can say that I don't have that mastered yet! But I did take my pictures in the shade next to the light outside today. This helped a lot in my starting point for editing the photos.
First try was in the shade facing the sun. Great at showing the quilting, but the color is wrong.
Then I switched sides and shot with the sun behind me.
I edited this photo 2 times trying to get the nice soft colors to show. I think the first one is better, but the blues aren't quite right. I found lots of tutorials on editing photos of people, but need to find one without people. Anyone know of a good one?
The closeup of the quilting turned out the be the best colorwise. I used a new pantograph called Curlz. Kinda reminds me of the waves so it seemed fitting for my soothing beach quilt.
The back is long strips of fabric from the front.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed it!
