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!


    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!
