Before and After Blog Hop: Holiday Bokeh
Pixel Perfect's Before and After blog hop! I'm glad I checked my blogs early today instead of late! Usually I read about it on Friday morning and by then its too late!
So, I took this picture of a hershey's hug a few days before Christmas. I was really just messing around with my camera by trying to duplicate some bokeh from my Christmas tree lights that I had seen on the Pioneer Woman's blog.
You guys know I'm editing challenged :P I typically try to get it exposed correctly in the camera and only use basic Picasa to sharpen and adjust contrast. I just learned how to do levels adjustment on GIMP. And use the unsharpen mask, too! I'm on a roll!
Here's my image after adjusting levels, sharpening, and adding texture. Subtle, but different.
