- Smoothed skin a bit using Gaussian Blur:
- Added a gaussian blur, changed blending mode to screen, lowered opacity, painted on with a 60% opacity brush
- Tweaked greenery a bit using an inverted selective color layer:
- Boosted cyan to +45, magenta to +35, and yellow to +100 in yellow channel
- Added matte via two levels adjustments:
- Changed output levels in the RGB channel to 90 black and 255 white; and 60 black and 221 white, respectively
- Newborn Necessities’ Sharp Eyelashes on myself and the baby (76% opacity); used Touch of Light on me and baby (26% opacity); added a classic vignette (Black radial gradient fill layer); ran NN Print Sharpie, inverted and masked on us only (76% opacity); denoised.
- For ‘pop’ of light at the top, added a solid color fill layer (white), then used the gradient tool and dragged it down just above my head and inverted the layer.
