About the Image(s)

This was taken with a iPhone 11 Max Pro, using the native camera app and a light pad.
I did a few edits in VSCO, but not many. I increased exposure to +7. I put a 1.0 black frame on it in LR. Then I imported it into PS and adjusted the white background since it was a little grey.

I just got both the phone and light box in the last week, so I need to work on this technique.

That's a beautiful image Laurie. Your edits are subtle - it was a great image from the beginning. You've got yourself a pretty good phone there!   Posted: 11/09/2019 22:56:15

Beautiful! This looks like the front of greeting card.   Posted: 11/10/2019 11:40:28

Very, very nice! I agree with Margaret that it was beautiful to begin with. It's perfect in my eyes. Congrats on the new phone and equipment!   Posted: 11/11/2019 20:51:20

This flower pops out of the page. What a great notecard. I am waiting for 5G to splurge on a new iphone. My 1phone 6 seems so archaic. You must be thrilled to have so many new options, and it seems like you are having fun experimenting with them.   Posted: 11/13/2019 08:27:59

This is really well done! I like the original as well. The light pad was a good idea. Is there anything special about the light pad? I have never tried this but it does look interesting.   Posted: 11/13/2019 18:57:30

The original is so perfect it didn't really need any extra work. You got the hang of using all your new equipment right out of the gate, I think. So nice!   Posted: 11/30/2019 20:42:12
