My Homemade pass-photo in 6 steps:
1 - I get the german reference for baby pass photo
2 - I take a picture from our lovely model with my digital camera (Panasonic DMC-LX2 | more about this camera). Then I adjust the size with my ref picture.
3 - I clean the background with the Clone Stamp Tool (S) with an average/small brush size (Hardness of 0%)
4 - With the same tool, I clean some smalls dirty dots (smaller brush size)
5 - I use the Unsharp Mask filter to get more details in the eyes and overall.
6 - And finaly I made small color correction with two adjustements layers. The first one was Photo Filter with an orange color (R=236 G=138 B=0) with density of 25%. The second filter was the Color Balance filter. I only change the midtones values.
That's all. It takes about 15 min to get a ready print pass photo.
The only thing that doesn't exactly match is lighting... whatever, it was fast :)
