Of all the things I love about blogging, editing my photos is probably my favorite! I can spend hours and hours tweaking and experimenting, which is exactly what happened when I opened up Lightroom for this set. I spent entirely too much time watching tutorials on YouTube and playing around with my settings, but in the end, I think I learned some neat tricks. Here’s an example of what I was doing. Raw image is on the left, my usual editing style is in the middle, and my new style is on the right.
I don’t want to get overly technical here, but if you’re interested in how I edit my pictures, I’m more than happy to tell you. The best advice I can give, though, is EXPERIMENT! Get to know your editing software and play around with all of its functions. There’s no need to spend a ton of money on presets when you can develop a style of editing on your own that you really like.
