Have you ever found yourself in a position where you are reviewing your images from an event and one of the images looked totally unsave-able? Still though, what you see in that image is a special warm moment between a mother and her daughter in that severely underexposed image.
The fact that this image was on “life support” didn’t deter me from the fact that I wanted to see if I could save it because of that special moment between the two ladies. Remember too, I wasn’t trying to a “perfect” result here. The goal was to get a “saleable” result. I figured the image would be made no larger that a 4x6 or 5x7 so I had quite a bit of bottom end latitude in getting what I wanted in my finished result.
Hit the PLAY button below and see what I had to do to salvage the image. It’s kind of fun seeing if you can pull off the “impossible”.
