I’ve edited my own family’s picture for years. It usually takes about sixteen shots to get just right one of each person, then add them in and remove the strange bits. In this case, I was commissioned to edit this family photo.
Apart from having fun by putting in pirates and sea monsters, which I could have done, I was asked to clean up the flyaways in the hair, glare on some facial features, billowing dresses because of the wind, and normalizing the colors. Here’s the final after about 12 or so hours in Adobe Photoshop.
