Through the Years: Evolution of Editing

This is from only 4 years ago, but I had begun to work on my little kid photography. Also, editing for outdoor portraits in the autumn is different than other seasons (and definitely indoors). Here’s an adorable shot of my oldest nephew as a one year old..

The trend of a cleaner edit and not so dark and fuzzy continues… I’m rather liking how my skills have evolved.

In Lightroom, I adjusted these values:
Exposure
Black Clipping
Brightness
Contrast
Highlight Recovery
Clarity
Vibrance
Autumn Color preset (created by me)
Medium Contrast Tone preset (created by me)
Saturation
