Is there an easy way to brighten up just face with elements? I tried brightening up the whole picture but it made the background look funny.

Thanks! I actually don't do as much editing. I mostly crop/brighten/and clone out runny noses/spots.

I feel like he isn't as chunky anymore. :( I think he is thinning out.

What setting do you have the camera on on the dial? And did you flip it MF?
