Before & After


Sometimes too much of a good thing is not a very good thing, but I think in this case, importing into Lightroom and plugging in a few presets did some amazing things to an ordinary photograph. The image on the left is out of the camera, the right is processed.
This photo was taken during a senior portrait session last year in Albuquerque, New Mexico.


  1. I’m really new to slr photography and I came across your before and after and am really intrigued by the difference in photos. Did you only use lightroom to create the after photo? Was it a RAW or JPEG file?

    Thanks so much!


  2. Totally dig how much more “punch” the processed image has. Not too sure about the vignette but the rest works.

    1. Thanks! I’m always reluctant about “heavy” post processing, I prefer a more natural look and feel to my images, but sometimes I’ll start experimenting for fun, and I’m amazed at what I do like!
      Thanks for stopping by!
