Before & Afters

It’s been a while since I posted some of these, so I thought I’d talk a little bit about editing pictures.

A lot of people think that a good camera takes good photographs, but even the best cameras and lenses need a little helping hand to produce the images that photographers publish.

All of my editing is done using Adobe’s Lightroom, every now and again I use a little Photoshop. Lightroom helps me to develop the images into what I see and how I want the subject to be portrayed as opposed to what the camera “sees”.

Editing also helps a lot when developing a style. It’s really important you find your own style as a photographer to help distinguish your work from others. I’m still developing but I can see that my preference is to photograph nature with a shallow depth of field, saturated in colour.

You don’t need to know everything about Lightroom or Photoshop to be able to edit images, it’s just a series of sliders and you can play with colours, highlights & shadows, filters, pre-sets and effects until you are happy with what you’ve created. It takes minutes to learn but a years to master. But be careful, it's addictive and you can loose whole days editing. Some images hardly get touched maybe 2 minutes worth of work but others can be hours!!
