Hands that hold the future-Creative Exchange Week 3


Canon EOS Rebel  |  f4.5  |  1/60 |  ISO 200

Got nuthin’ really outstanding this weekend to share for Creative Exchange Week 3 so I’m pulling one I took when Peanut was born. Originally in color, I thought it would make more of a statement in black and white. When converting digital color shots to black and white, I use the Image>Mode> Lab Color setting in PhotoShop and select Lightness in the Channels menu. I find it gives me better contrast. From there, I go to Image>Mode>Grayscale. Through Image>Adjustments> Levels, further contrast can be achieved if necessary. For the finale, I use Filter>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask until I get the sharpness that looks best.

  1. Id say that photograph is pretty outstanding!


  2. Lisa –
    This is beyond outstanding!!
    What a beautiful shot, and wonderful memory.
    I think it is perfect in B&W, and I LOVE those little feet!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing this at The Creative Exchange!



  3. I love it. My son took a picture of second grandson’s feet and then printed the photo on cloth used for embroidery – I wish I could remember it’s proper name. This was back in the days of film when he did his own developing.


  4. I saw this photo on Lisa’s White Cotton Tee and I had to take a sneak peek.
    It’s lovely and I like it a lot!
    Hope to see you again on the Creative Exchange :)


  5. Amazing shot–I like it with a b/w look.


  6. I arrived here by mistake. When I did a search in Google, your web site was at number 1 but is not about what I was seeking for. Just wanted to write a message to say to you that I like the style of your site.


Please leave me some comment Luv! I appreciate each and every one.
