I’m doing another editing flashback friday. This is one of my favorite pictures from last year.
It was the last few minutes of sunlight last April. My first edit I took the exposure up a lot and lost a lot of the color of the sky and the overall texture of my image. My WB was on auto and my image was very cool. Today I opened up the original file and wondered why I exposed it so much. My original edit actual took longer then my new edit. All I did was warm the image up a bit and a my favorite blends on it and I was done. 1 clik in photoshop and I was done.

This blog post is to one of my original practice models.

First up is my first session with Miss E. She was about to turn 1. I was using a Nikon d5100 with a 35mm 1.8 lens. I was just learning to shoot in RAW and this session was in jpeg. The only reason it was in jpeg is because I forgot to check before I started. I was so mad when I got home that it was all in jpeg! I haven’t made that mistake again! This is straight out of the camera with no edits.

Here is an image a year later. I was using a Nikon d610 with a 85 mm 1.8 lens. I loved the lighting and location but not loving my editing. I should have brought down the red and warmed it up a bit.

Here is a slightly different picture, same location but edited with my style today. I toned down the red and brightened it up a little.

Last pictures was just taken last week with the d610 and a sigma art 35mm 1.4 lens. It is warmer then my other images. I have let go of the “rules” and embraced that the limbs are cut off. Normally, I would not have included this kind of photo or shared it but look how happy they are!

This weeks flash back friday features my editing style in 2009 and earlier this year. I have invested a lot of time into learning and growing this past year so my style has evolved in just that short amount of time.

This first photo is from June of 2009.
The one on the left is how I would edit it today and on the right is how I edited it in 2009. This photo was shot with a nikon d40 and a stock lens. I only did a few things differently. I cleaned it up a little, smoothed out the skin, took a little of the redness off and warmed it up. I also took out the trash can and stroller.

Now jump to 2013. Anyone notice this is the same little boy?? He just isn’t so little anymore!

Photo on the left was my edit from last year and the right was this year. This was taken with a D5100 and a 35mm lens. I warmed it up a little bit and pulled out some of the green. There was so much green in this picture his little face had turned green. Just a couple of adjustments makes a huge difference!
