Just how cute is this gorgeous pink wall clock from Coco Male?
At just £18, it’s bound to add a splash of colour to your little girl’s room with its bright pink plate and multi-coloured dials and numbers.
This beautiful little clock is perfect for learning how to tell time. Plus the quarter hours are cleverly written out which makes learning easier and so much fun.
It’s Before and After Monday. This week I am sharing with you a ‘before and after’ clean edit in Lightroom.
Here’s a quick rundown of how I edited this photo. I started off by opening the raw image in Lightroom. The first thing I did was to change the camera calibration from ‘adobe standard’ to ‘camera portrait’. This little change made a lot of difference.
Next I concentrated on correcting exposure and white balance. The image was underexposed so I increased the exposure. I noticed the photo was too cool so I corrected the white balance by increasing the temp and the tint. I wanted the photo warmer and this did the trick.
The next thing I did was to add some fill light and reduce the blacks.
The image was still looking a bit blah so I increased the brightness and contrast. I also increased the clarity, vibrance and saturation, as well as the highlights, lights and darks. I reduced the shadows a little bit.
I used the spot removal tool to remove spots and I also used the noise reduction tool to reduce the noise. Then I sharpened the image. That’s all. What do you think of the clean edit?
Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.
The Oct 20 edition of Closer magazine features an interview with Terri Graham, a mum of two from California, who breastfeeds her pug dog.
Graham couldn’t breastfeed her own children so instead she offered her boobs to her puppy named Spider.
Bizarrely, she says breastfeeding Spider makes her feel like a better mum.
“Having Spider suckle on my boob means I finally feel complete and a better mother,” Graham told Closer.
A psychologist interviewed for the magazine suggested that Graham seek help.
