It's an Autumn tradition in England to pick your own pumpkin from a local farm. It was our first time and I loved it so much, that I will definitely want to do it every year from now on :) Of course, I wouldn't be myself if I hadn't planned a small session for my boys! I will show you the results and a few "before and after" photos with a short explanation of how the photos were edited.
For our trip I chose the local farm - Grange Farm Lowton - which is not far from Wigan, where we live. In addition to pumpkin picking, there were a few more attractions for children - a small animal farm, 3 merry-go-rounds, a few shops with sweets and toys, and corn maze.
We got a wheelbarrow and we were able to enter the field full of pumpkins. There was no problem with taking pictures there, which was very important to me :) You could choose the most beautiful pumpkins and then buy them in a nearby shop.
There was quite a lot people in the background so I simply used clone stamp tool to removed them. I also colored background using paint brush with low opacity to get a result of sunny, yellow fog in the back.
I specially chose the later slot to have better light in case it was sunny, but when I was taking these pictures it was cloudy so the photos came out in quite cold, bluish tones.
I wanted to achieve warm, autumn colors so I use color balance tools and my favorite Florabella action - Brownish.
There are some before and after:
If you have any questions about editing - please write them in comments! I will be happy to help!
