At any rate, I have been trying to Expose to the Right (ETTR), which is supposedly the proper way to take digital photos, to get the most digital data. Then "fix" it in Lightroom (or wherever) to get the right look. In some ways I struggle with this concept, but in others it really makes sense to me.
So I've been trying it. I have been bracketing my photos so that I can one at the "correct" exposure, then get some overexposed. I edit and play with both exposures. I tend to get halos and weird things when I overexpose, so I'm not confident with it.
I'm learning lots about lightroom and really trying to find my voice. I guess since I don't have much of a consistent subject matter aside from my children, finding my voice is difficult. But if I can translate what my mind's eye sees into the computer screen I'm happy.
At any rate ... here are some that I've worked with recently. I should start showing SOOC with my edited, but I don't have those uploaded, and don't really have time to mess with that right now. Maybe in a future series.
|SOOC - very warm and orangey|
|Original edit, normal looking and nice.|
