One of the things I always love seeing on other photographer’s blogs, is before and afters that they share. I believe it is super important to get the image as perfect as possible in the camera, but the camera (even if you have the best of the best) can not deliver exactly what our eyes saw.
To me, editing is the finale to your images, it’s what makes them shine. I definitely prefer a warmer tone to my images than the camera produces and for most of pictures, all that is needed are some minor adjustments.
And so here are some before and afters from sessions/weddings I’ve had over the last few months.
I tend not to use the cloning tool too much, but I found the elements in the sky in the right rather distracting from the image, so they disappeared 😉
And for anyone who was wondering, I do shoot all of my images in RAW and I edit all of them in Lightroom 5.
