Life with identical twins

Playing around with presets

on November 29, 2013

One of the things I am not awesome at is editing my pictures. I’ve read one book, and I’ve watched a few youtube tutorials, but I just haven’t spent the time I need to to really know what I’m doing in Lightroom. For the most part, I leave my pictures alone as much as possible. I tweak the color, boost things, bump the black, and generally leave it at that. I don’t oversaturate, undersaturate, or blow out any colors. I keep it simple. So sometimes, it’s fun to take a simple picture of the girls and try some of the presets that I’ve downloaded because they can do things to photos that I cannot and I love it! It was fun to play around, and see what struck a chord with me and what didn’t. Clearly, simple seems to.

I love how her eyes are the focus here, and the rest of the color is pulled away.

Love the vintagey feel of this one.

Similar to Caden’s, I love how the color is pulled away and her eyes are the focus.

I never undersaturate my pictures, which is probably why I love this one.
