Thursday Challenges: Before and After and You Capture

I'm going to put both of my Thursday challenges in one post.

First of all, here is my before and after.  We started this senior portrait session about an hour late due to conflicts in schedules.  Needless to say, we were losing sun pretty fast.  Here is my SOOC image.


 Here is my edited image:


I used Lightroom 3 to make my initial edit in shadows/highlights and overall color balance.  In Photoshop I did the retouching, adjusted levels, selective color and hue saturation.  I also added a texture to the background.

You Capture, the theme is Orange.  We are quarantined in the house for the time being since I have sick kids so I didn't get to venture outside.  Not that there is much orange out there right now anyway, we live in AZ and don't have a traditional fall.  Anyway, my ham of the day was willing to pose for me in this lovely orange hat.  Enjoy!
