This is from a photo I took many years ago of my daughter. She was just stepping up onto the porch and out of the rain. The photo was not good. It was taken with a film camera and there was no going in later and increasing the exposure or doing anything to bring out her sweet face. Here’s the photo:
So all these years later, I tried brightening her up myself, the old fashioned way, on my iPad Pro. (Well okay, maybe that’s not really old fashioned, but my drawing supplies were in my studio and I was under the weather.) I may go in and tweak her a little more. I still haven’t captured those apple cheeks and beautiful eyes to my satisfaction.
