Why Can’t I Get This Job?


This photo was taken on Thanksgiving of 2012 in Manitou Springs, CO. The Salvation Army gives away hundreds of meals, and this one of the volunteers hard at work. I volunteer for this particular job each year and am turned down every time. Maybe it’s because I only have the same look she has on her face when I’m eating pie, not when I’m giving it away.

I made basic adjustments and reduced noise in Adobe Camera Raw. In Photoshop I applied curves and black & white adjustment layers. I used the Spot Healing Brush to remove spots and stray hairs. I also used the burn tool to darken the background and remove any distracting elements.
