Photo Tip Tuesday: Before and After
Hey y’all! Every Tuesday this month I am showing examples of before and after photos with settings and how I edited the images. I am starting this series with the beginning of a wedding day and will progress throughout the month.
A wedding day is all about capturing moments and sometimes we don’t have time to perfect our setting before we take the shot. I feel like a good moment trumps a perfect photo setting overtime. With that being said I am sharing a few examples of how editing saved the photo.
In the photo above my setting were iso 400 F 2.0 1/200 camera Mark 111 35mm lens. I edited this image in Lightroom I used my preset and brought the highlights down/ shadows up/ I also brought the exposure up 1 stop.
In the image above I spotted this moment and simply did not have a second to adjust my setting. I am thankful the image turned out 🙂
iso 400 f 2.0 1/125 camera Mark 111 50 mm lens I edited the photo in Lightroom first I applied my preset then I brought the shadows up, and brought the exposure up 1.5 stops
Cassy’s smile is a show stopper. I mean I had to get that genuine moment no matter what.
iso 800 f2.0 1/125 camera Mark 111 Lens 50 mm I edited this image in Lightroom by first using my preset then bringing the highlights down, shadows up, exposure up 1 stop and adjusting the temp to make the image less warm.
I would love to hear your feedback in the comments! Next week I will be sharing 3 photos from the a Wedding ceremony!

Thank you for the sharing. Lovely work. I also subscribe your YouTube.
Can you show how it works in photoshop? I have some same case, but I don’t have lightroom.
In my traveling photos, I only use pop-up flash on daylight.
Thank you. 🙂
GAH! I have to know where the striped dress is from! I AM IN LOVE! And need a dress for my wedding <3
Great pictures! I found your blog through your YouTube videos. You’re awesome!
Thank you for sharing, before and after photos are always interesting to see and you’re absolutely right, capturing the perfect moment is way more important than adjusting your settings!
