Hey guys :) Illustrator is my forte, not so much Photoshop. I know enough to crop, mask, cut, adjust levels and curves, brightness, etc, but just don't spend much time working with the program. Recently we had someone come through at work who had gorgeous photos and while at least half her talent definitely lies in taking the photos, I can't help but love the way she filters and colors her photos during editing. I'm posting a few examples -- the first is an unedited version, second is edited, third is a combination of edits (no idea what they looked like before hand, how saturated they were, etc).
It looks like she definitely pulls back on the contrast and saturation and is maybe adding some sort of transparent color over everything, but I would still love to know if anyone else has ideas on how I can filter images similar to this. I would ask the photographer myself but we presently are not encouraged to contact freelancers hired by the company.
Sorry for the gigantic images.. didn't resize before sending to tinypic!
