Talkative Tuesday: From Dark to Light

April 1, 2014

Hey everyone!

It’s Talkative Tuesday time! I was SO busy last week that I didn’t have any time to even think about posting a Talkative Tuesday! Β Sorry to those who read them and I do hope you read them, haha!

Anyway, on to today’s talk!

I wanted to share a photo I took last Wednesday that was pretty underexposed SOOC (straight out of camera) but I brought it into Lightroom and made it jump back to life!

The reason for underexposing was because I wanted to make sure I kept as much detail as possible. Overexposing when done right, works well, but sometimes you lose a lot of detail. In this particular photo, I wanted Allie and Justin to be the main focus, but I also wanted the leaves to blur nicely. To get that I had to expose for them and that made everything around them pretty darn dark. So, when I brought the photo into LR, I made sure I boosted the shadows up, messed with the exposure a bit, turned down the highlights and added a little more vibrance.

Happy Tuesday everyone!
