The Before and After
Often we think great photos just happen in an instant. In some situations this is very true. For instance, a rare moment of a baby laughing with no teeth (imagine that in your head). Even in the photo is captured, it could be over exposed or under exposed. Take the photo above... I think is a great portrait of Hayley. Of course I captured it, but I still had to tweak some things in lightroom and photoshop in order to make the final image appear. Below is a side by side image of the before and after.
Using some simple editing techniques that I've learn directly from youtube. I've been able to create moods in photos that tell a story. A couple of tricks that I use for my editing involves frequency separation and tone curves. (Below is another before and after)
