The Power Of Editing - Before and After

If you are anything like me, you LOVE seeing the before and afters of your pictures as well as other photographers . I love to edit. It's how I bring out my vision for every photo I take. It's how I see a photo before I even take it.

If you are interested in me doing more of these types of posts leave a comment and let me know. I may even give some tips on how I do certain things. Interested?

Here they are, I edited all of these 100% in Lightroom.


The before on the above one has just my basic color edit on it since I had to take it to Photoshop to switch heads but everything in the after shot was done in Lightroom.







Here are some more favs from the shoot...

I love before and afters and your shots are so colorful! I love to hear that you only used lightroom as that is the only program I have - I'm very interested in the edits done on the 6th shot, the one of the two girls hugging. Tips/tricks would be welcome!!!

it's amazing how much color gets brought out in your edits. i love seeing before and after shots, and tips from you would be a dream. i wanted to take that photo class from you, but money at the time wasn't there. you are AMAZING!! i love the picture of your boy hugging your two girls. that, i think, caught the moment perfectly. and that's what i love about your work. it does just that. i cherish the pictures you took of my son.
