Paula in Pink






This cute little “package” shown here is the daughter of our good friends Paul & Sindy. I shot this image as they were getting ready to leave. We loved Paula’s pose with her finger across her mouth, but the background left much to be desired.




A few minutes in Photoshop delivered much more acceptable results. I created the background layer by setting the colors to two different shades of pink from her coat and then applying “filter” “render” “difference clouds”. Afterwards all that was necessary was to remove the background around Paula and lightly fade her outline using the eraser tool.

Give her a few years and she'll be giving Chris & Amy's daughters a run for their money in the cuteness department!
