The power of editing.

The original photo: I started with good composition, leading lines, and great lighting... Not a bad photo.

Let's take that same photo into Lightroom and make some tweaks...

And a B&W version with a couple more tweaks...

There is a VAST difference between "point and shoot" photography and professional photography.

For this Senior shoot I used my Canon 50D, 24-70 f/2.8L lens, and a 32" Photoflex reflector.


  1. I think the "tweaks" made her face flat.

  2. @Steven, I replaced the "tweaked" photos. I think the new ones have more definition. The prior ones were a tad hot on the exposure.
