fiddle leaf photography
Apr 7, 2018
I hope you had a great week! We’ve been hunkered down inside, in what feels like the longest winter of all time, but I’m defying all logic and still planning on starting my seeds for our garden this weekend. Let’s hope that by the time they are tiny little sprouts the ground might be thawed and ready for them. (Fingers crossed!)
I get a lot of questions about what I use to edit and what presets I use. The quick answer is Adobe Lightroom and a modified version of a preset from the Clickin Moms Garden Collection. But, that being said, I think it’s really important to be able to edit from scratch without using a preset.
So, let’s start with a before and after from a recent self-portrait I made.
Here’s the fully edited image:
And here’s the straight out of camera image with no edits:
Curious how I got from before to after?
The video below is a screen recording of me editing this image from start to finish. I show you how a few different presets look on the SOOC image and then also walk you through how I edited it without using any preset. It is quite in-depth and is geared towards photographers, but even if you’re not a photographer, you might find it interesting to see the process and how much time can be spent on one image.
This month on Unscripted, Jenny and I are talking all about self-portraits. How to take them, ideas for them, how we set them up and how we edit them. In fact, I have a tutorial scheduled that breaks down that image above, showing you the full pullback and how I had my camera set up.
You can get all of this for only $15 USD/month and can join/cancel your membership whenever you’d like. I’ve taken a tonne of different classes and I can honestly say this is such an amazing value.
