I was in need of a tiny, ummm, mental break from the last few days. It’s been a little crazy ’round here.
And what better way to soothe ones soul than to putter around in Lightroom? And stare into the eyes of someone you love to the very core?
Ahhhh, I feel better already.
And just as the name implies (sweet simplicity how I love you!) the gist is to take a picture and share it before, and yes, after.
So here’s my girl. In all her nekkid glory from the other day. This is the SOOC version. For you guys not hip with the lingo, that stands for straight out of the camera.
I know, where’s the ‘T’?
But I’m so crazy for presets now (since I just found some I love and figured how ridiculously easy they are to use) it’s reaaaally hard to lay off.
Sort of like when I finally got my hands on a navy blue eyeliner pencil.
I edited this in LR2, a tiny crop, and I added Sarah-Ji’s “meadow” preset and upped the recovery a little (I usually set the exposure a hair high in all my pics to begin with) and darkened the edges.
I might have done some other stuff on accident. I can’t quite remember.
‘Cuz right now I’m into overdoing it a bit.
