Image Problem? Use It, Don't Lose It

Now we're ready for the kind of image correcting I enjoy the most—no correcting at all! Let me describe the setting for the image you're about to see. For one week out of the year, my daughter's school celebrates school spirit by allowing the students to dress in a different theme for each day. One day is Pajama Day, another is School-Colors Day, and well, you get the idea. One day in particular was known as Wacky Tacky Day, and I thought my daughter looked rather cute in the wacky fabrics she pulled together as an outfit for that day. I wanted to take pictures, but she wasn't too enthusiastic about the idea and not in the mood to model and show off for the camera. So I strolled by her room and quickly snapped a few shots. As you'll soon discover for yourself, her room isn't the best setting for a picture.

When I glanced at the downloaded images, my first impression was “Oh, these photos aren't useful for anything. Look at all the clutter. It would take hours to edit this stuff out, and I'm not so convinced the final result would be worth the effort.”
