A chit's yearly list of nonsense

Before/After Photo of Month: Hanging Rock


I can’t believe the month is gone! Tomorrow I’m posting about the first park I visited after 31, one of my favorite spots, Hanging Rock.  I thought I’d share a quick before and after of a photo from the day. Sadly, I edited the picture in LR4 on vacation and can’t remember what I did exactly to it so I tried to recreate the same effects in Lightroom 3 (which shouldn’t be hard right?)


Actions used in Lightroom 3

Creamtone preset. Auto Tone. Auto sharpening for faces. Fine tuning of shadows, fill light, exposure (I brought it back to 0 from preset’s -0.05).

I’m not a 100% happy but if possible I’m going to get my hands on the first edit to see how close I was to recreating it!

How do you edit your photos?

If you haven’t tried Lightroom before I’d recommend giving it a try. You can download a free trial of Lightroom 4 from Adobe {here} or if you are a student like me snagging the discount {Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Student and Teacher Edition}.
