A Little Drama

The top photo of Marissa Scott is not a bad photo. Nice pose, okay lighting on the subject.
The problem with this photo is the background. It is really distracting. If I had shot with flash,
I would have darkened the background by controlling my exposure, making the exposure on the background a half stop or so less than on the subject.

An alternative solution is to use Photoshop. I opened the original image, and used levels to darken the background. Then using the History brush I painted the background down. Takes away the distracting hot spots in the background, and ads a bit of drama to the image.
