This project had a few parts to it. I had to go out and take portrait shots of a subject, but the focus had to be of the subject’s face in each image. And then I had to choose the best images from the shoot and bring them into Lightroom for simple edits to their facial features. After those edits, I had to add some edits to the background that allowed my audience to be more drawn into the image because of the focal point. So this whole project was focused around taking your own images and editing them for a client’s approval.

 I learned that photo shoots take a lot of time and effort to complete, and working with clients can be difficult. But in the end it was all worth it. I also learned how to use Lightroom to retouch people correctly. You can easily ruin a photo by editing it, and I was able to enhance my photos instead of messing them up. I also learned how to use both Photoshop and Lightroom together to create an amazing image. There are strengths to using both programs and being able to go back and forth is really helpful.
